VBK Factset Analytics Insight

VBK is a great choice for investors looking for low-cost, solid exposure to the US small-cap growth market. With a large, stable asset base and a tiny expense ratio, VBK is cheap to hold, easy to trade, and delivers good coverage of its target market. The fund switched from an MSCI index to a CRSP index in April 2013, but the portfolio still closely resembles our MSCI benchmark, with few sector biases and similar performance. VBK offers solid coverage in an efficient, liquid wrapper and features on our opportunities list.
