Fund Description

The Vanguard Total Stock Market Index Fund Admiral Shares (VTSAX) debuted in 1992 with the expressed goal of providing investors with exposure to U.S. equities. The fund, which is not actively-managed, tracks the Vanguard Total Stock Market Index, which aims to invest in both growth and value stocks of all sizes that are domiciled in the U.S. One of the first things investors will notice is that VTSAX charges just 5 basis points for investment, making it one of the cheapest funds in the world. That has combined with a relatively low minimum investment threshold of $10,000 to propel the fund into popularity. Note that this is the “Admiral” shares version of VTSMX; while it has a higher minimum investment than VTSMX, it charges less in annual fees.

Investors can use this fund as a core holding in their portfolio as it offers a healthy diversity when it comes to U.S. equity exposure. Note that because this fund includes exposure to small- and mid-cap stocks it will be slightly riskier than an S&P 500 fund, for example. Investors can learn more about VSTAX at any time on Vanguard’s site, which includes information on performance, sector breakdown, top holdings, and more.
