VT Fund Description

The Vanguard Total World Stock ETF tracks a market-cap-weighted index of global stocks covering 98% of the domestic and emerging market capitalization.

VT Factset Analytics Insight

VT holds a low-cost, well-diversified, cap-weighted portfolio of developed and emerging market stocks. The fund ignores frontier markets—as do most peer funds—but excluding the likes of Vietnam and Kuwait has minimal impact on the fund's ability to track the global market. VT’s inclusion of small-caps makes it incrementally more representative than direct rivals like ACWI and helps explain its truly massive portfolio.

Despite the expansive coverage, the ETF charges a very low fee and trades well, so total costs are low. Two structural comments: The issuer uses fair-value NAVs which minimize trading premiums and discounts but distort typical tracking calculations. And it discloses positions monthly rather than daily. Still, these considerations are hardly deal-breakers: VT earns Analyst Pick list for the segment with low cost and excellent exposure to the global stock market.
