Fund Description

The Vanguard Target Retirement 2015 Fund Investor Shares (VTXVX) is a target-date fund of funds. Using a specified glide path, VTXVX invests in four other Vanguard index funds and a TIPS bond fund. The fund provides exposure to both domestic stocks of all market caps as well as international stocks. Additionally, both domestic and foreign investment-grade bonds are included in the fund’s holdings. As VTXVX approaches 2015, it will reduce its exposure to equities and increase its holdings in fixed-income securities.

Expenses for the fund are low-cost. Given its all-encompassing approach to retirement investing, VTXVX is perfect as a core option for investors. The fund is internally managed by Vanguard.
