Fund Description

The Vanguard Limited-Term Tax-Exempt Fund Admiral Shares (VMLUX) seeks to provide a high level of income that is exempt from Federal taxes while limiting price fluctuations. The fund does this by betting on short-term municipal bonds. These bonds have maturities between two and six years. VMLUX enhances its yield and income potential by using rigorous credit analysis to find bonds trading at discounts to their real valuation.

Given its focus on tax-exempt income, investors in higher tax brackets may want to use VMLUX as a core piece of their fixed-income portfolio. The fund is managed by Vanguard’s Fixed Income Group.
