Fund Description

The Vanguard Wellesley Income Fund Admiral Shares (VWIAX) is a low-cost, actively managed conservative-allocation fund that seeks to provide high current income, income growth as well as a reasonable amount of capital growth. The fund holds 60-65% of its assets in bonds and 35-40% in stocks, depending on market conditions. VWIAX primarily invests in large stocks of domestic firms that pay dividends and intermediate 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 income.

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