VAW Fund Description

VAW tracks a very broad market-cap-weighted index of US materials companies.

VAW Factset Analytics Insight

VAW offers broad exposure to the US basic materials segment thanks to a highly representative market-cap-weighted index. The fund holds materials companies, stretching across multiple sub-industries from the broadly defined space. The fund uses GICS classification to include companies that manufacture chemicals, construction materials, glass, paper, forest products, and packaging products, as well as metals, minerals, and mining companies. Certain investment limits are applied for RICs to help ensure diversification. Like all Vanguard funds, the fund has limited transparency, as holdings are only published monthly. The index is rebalanced quarterly.
