Fund Description

The Vanguard Wellington Fund Admiral Shares (VWENX) is low-cost, actively managed moderate-allocation fund that seeks to grow invested capital while providing a reasonable amount of income. The fund holds approximately 60-70% of its assets in stocks and 30-40% in bonds, depending on market conditions. VWENX primarily invests in large- and mid-cap stocks of domestic firms and intermediate-, short- and long-term government and investment-grade corporate bonds. The fund uses risk management to create the best blend of these asset classes to provide steady growth of capital.

Offering a blend of both stocks and bonds, VWENX makes for a great core position for investors. The fund is managed by Wellington Management Company LLP.
