Vanguard Total Stock Market ETF seeks to track the performance of a benchmark index that measures the investment return of the overall stock market. It employs a passively managed, index-sampling strategy that can potentially be useful as a tool for establishing quick exposure to risky assets. With an extremely broad base of holdings and balance of exposure, this fund is an appealing option for investors looking to simplify their portfolios and minimize rebalancing obligations. VTI is one of the cheapest products available, and the ability to trade commission free within a Vanguard account further increases the appeal to cost-conscious investors.
Vanguard Total Stock Market ETF aims to replicate the composition of the US equity market, providing a broadly diversified and low-turnover portfolio for a cheap fee.
This ETF offers broad exposure to the U.S. equity market, investing in thousands of different securities across all sectors.
Those seeking more balanced exposure to U.S. equities may want to use VTI alongside more targeted products focusing on smaller companies.
All of its share classes earn Morningstar Analyst Ratings of Gold except for the Investor class, which receives a Silver rating due its higher fee.
