Fund Description

The Vanguard LifeStrategy Moderate Growth Fund Investor Shares (VSMGX) is a passively managed, moderately allocated fund that holds stocks and bonds in a 60/40 spilt. VSMGX is a fund of funds, investing in four other Vanguard index funds: the Total Stock Market Index Fund, the Total Bond Market II Index Fund, the Total International Stock Index Fund and the Total International Bond Index Fund. The fund seeks capital appreciation and a low level of current income.

Given its wide span of holdings and low costs, VSMGX is a perfect all-in-one option for investors. The fund is internally managed by Vanguard.
