The expense ratios of exchange-traded funds (ETFs) often are lower than corresponding mutual funds because ETFs are traded through brokerage firms, alleviating administrative costs. When purchasing or selling ETFs, however, you may incur transaction costs that would not apply to no-load mutual funds.

The performance data shown represent past performance, which is not a guarantee of future results. Investment returns and principal value will fluctuate so that investors' shares, when sold, may be worth more or less than their original cost. Current performance may be lower or higher than the performance data cited. The performance of an index is not an exact representation of any particular investment, as you cannot invest directly in an index.

Performance data for periods of less than one year do not reflect the deduction of purchase and redemption fees. Maintenance, low-balance, and service fees may be assessed by some funds. None of these fees are reflected in the performance figures. If these fees were included, the performance would be lower. All other performance data are adjusted for purchase and redemption fees, where applicable.

A non-money market fund's SEC yield is based on a formula developed by the SEC. The method calculates a fund's hypothetical annualized income as a percentage of its assets.

 

A security's income, for the purposes of this calculation, is based on the current market yield to maturity (for bonds) or projected dividend yield (for stocks) of the fund's holdings over a trailing 30-day period. This hypothetical income will differ (at times, significantly) from the fund's actual experience. As a result, income distributions from the fund may be higher or lower than implied by the SEC yield.

 

The SEC yield for a money market fund is calculated by annualizing its daily income distributions for the previous 7 days.

The yield for a money market fund more closely reflects the current earnings of the fund than its total return does.

For non-Vanguard funds, yield is defined as a fund's annualized current rate of investment income, calculated with a Securities and Exchange Commission formula that includes the fund's net income (based on the yield to maturity of each bond it holds), the average number of outstanding fund shares during the 30-day period reported by Morningstar, and the maximum offering price per share on the last day of the period. The data is provided by Morningstar and is only as current as the information supplied to Morningstar by third parties.

Some funds may charge purchase, redemption, and/or 12b-1 fees.

All transactions are also subject to Vanguard Brokerage Services' Commission and Fee Schedules, policies, and procedures.

Individual fund families may impose additional minimum, fees, or charges. NTF, TF, and load funds are subject to the greater of the FundAccess minimum investment requirements or those identified in the fund's prospectus.

Transaction-fee (TF) and no-transaction-fee (NTF) funds.

See the Vanguard brokerage commission and fee schedule for more information. A short-term redemption fees may also be charged by the outside fund family.
