VBR Factset Analytics Insight
VBR is a large, liquid choice with excellent coverage. In April 2013, VBR switched from an MSCI value index to a CRSP index. The index aligns well with our benchmark by firm size, meaning it leans toward larger firms that fall in the midcap space. Sector biases are present but smaller than those of many peer funds.
VBR's fees are low and its liquidity and asset base are high, which combined with great coverage makes it a solid choice. Despite its excellent alignment with our benchmark, the fund lands on the Opportunities List (rather than Analyst Pick) because we favor “pure” style exposure, which excludes firms that aren't clearly classified as either value or growth.
