Fund Description

The Vanguard Intermediate-Term Tax-Exempt Fund Investor Shares (VWITX) aims to provide high income for tax-sensitive investors. It does this by betting on intermediate-term municipal bonds from a variety of state, town and municipal issuers. Munis are generally exempt from Federal taxes and some state taxes. Using credit analysis, the actively managed fund seeks out only high-quality muni bonds. VWITX’s holdings are kept for between six and 12 years.

With its low costs, VWITX makes an ideal core bond position for investors in high tax brackets or in a taxable account. The fund is managed by Vanguard’s Fixed Income Group.
