Fund Description

The Vanguard Strategic Equity Fund Investor Shares (VSEQX) is an actively managed fund that seeks to aggressively grow an investor’s portfolio. The fund uses a proprietary quantitative factor model as well as screens when selecting its holdings. VSEQX can be considered a smart-beta offering. To achieve its underwritten goals, the fund focuses on both growth and value small- and mid-cap stocks.

Expenses for the fund are low. However, given the use of factors and indiscriminate screens, VSEQX could be a side bet at best. The fund is internally managed by Vanguard.
