VCSH Fund Description

VCSH tracks a market-weighted index of investment-grade, fixed-rate corporate bonds with maturities between 1 and 5 years.

VCSH Factset Analytics Insight

VCSH defines "short-term" bonds as bonds that mature within the next 1 to 5 years. This definition extends beyond our benchmark’s 1- to 3-year coverage, but is still a reasonable take on the short-term space. Not surprisingly, VCSH has a weighted average maturity that’s typically about 1 year longer than our benchmark’s. It usually has a higher effective duration too, meaning it’s more sensitive to changes in interest rates. For those willing to bear added interest-rate risk in search of higher yield, VCSH gets it done with very low holding and trading costs. The fund has a hefty asset base to boot.

VCSH MSCI ESG Analytics Insight

Vanguard Short-Term Corporate Bond ETF has an MSCI ESG Fund Rating of BBB based on a score of 4.75 out of 10. The MSCI ESG Fund Rating measures the resiliency of portfolios to long-term risks and opportunities arising from environmental, social, and governance factors. ESG Fund Ratings range from best (AAA) to worst (CCC). Highly rated funds consist of companies that tend to show strong and/or improving management of financially relevant environmental, social and governance issues. These companies may be more resilient to disruptions arising from ESG events.

The fund’s Peer Rank reflects the ranking of a fund’s MSCI ESG Fund Quality Score against the scores of other funds within the same peer group, as defined by the Thomson Reuters Lipper Global Classification. Vanguard Short-Term Corporate Bond ETF ranks in the 36th percentile within its peer group and in the 19th percentile within the global universe of all funds covered by MSCI ESG Fund Ratings.
