25 Vanguard funds on the Money 70 list

January 10, 2013

Text size:AAA

The editors of Money magazine have chosen 24 individual Vanguard mutual funds and exchange-traded funds (ETFs), along with our Target Retirement Fund series, for the latest "Money 70" list of recommended funds, published in the magazine's January/February 2013 Investor's Guide.

Vanguard has more funds on this year's list than any other fund family, with nearly three times as many as the next largest competitor. In addition, Vanguard funds made up a majority in two categories: index funds (8 of the 11 listed) and ETFs (11 of the 16 listed).

This is the 12th consecutive year Money has recognized Vanguard on its list of recommended funds. The magazine's editors evaluate funds on several criteria, including expenses, investment strategies, long-term performance, experienced and trustworthy managers, and a record of putting shareholder interests first.

Vanguard funds on the 2013 "Money 70" list:

Money magazine is not affiliated with Vanguard or Vanguard funds. The article mentioned here is neither an offer to sell nor a solicitation of an offer to buy shares.
Mutual funds and ETFs, like all investments, are subject to risks, including the possible loss of principal.
Investments in bonds are subject to interest rate, credit, and inflation risk. Foreign investing involves additional risks including currency fluctuations and political uncertainty. Stocks of companies in emerging markets are generally riskier than stocks of companies in developed countries.
Prices of mid- and small-cap stocks often fluctuate more than those of large-company stocks. Funds that concentrate on a relatively narrow market sector face the risk of higher share-price volatility.
Investments in Target Retirement Funds are subject to the risks of their underlying funds. The year in the fund name refers to the approximate year (the target date) when an investor in the fund would retire and leave the workforce. The fund will gradually shift its emphasis from more aggressive investments to more conservative ones based on its target date. An investment in the Target Retirement Fund is not guaranteed at any time, including on or after the target date.
Vanguard ETF Shares are not redeemable with the issuing fund other than in creation unit aggregations. Instead, investors must buy or sell Vanguard ETF Shares in the secondary market with the assistance of a stockbroker. In doing so, the investor will incur brokerage commissions and may pay more than net asset value when buying and receive less than net asset value when selling.
Past performance is no guarantee of future returns.
