Fund Description

The Vanguard Managed Payout Fund Investor Shares (VPGDX) is an actively managed, moderately allocated fund that is designed to provide monthly cash distributions to investors. VPGDX is a “fund of funds” and invests in eight other Vanguard funds as well as commodities in an attempt to meet its goals. These holdings can change as management of the fund sees fit. Each year, VPGDX will declare a target dividend amount based on previous and estimated performance of the fund. This amount could change wildly from year to year.

Given its focus on income, VPGDX is best suited for investors in retirement and those looking to have a certain level of income. The fund is managed by Vanguard.
