VDE Fund Description

VDE tracks a market-cap-weighted index of US energy companies. The index includes those companies deemed investable by MSCI and covers 98% of the market.

VDE Factset Analytics Insight

VDE offers broad exposure to US equity stocks at low all-in costs. VDE holds more stocks than most peer funds (excepting rival fund FENY, which tracks a similar MSCI index). Still, the coverage is concentrated in leading names, in keeping with the market. VDE charges a very low fee and makes it count with tight tracking. Trading costs are low too, although it’s no match for liquidity-leader XLE in trading volume. Outside of some transparency issues—holdings are not disclosed daily—VDE earns Analyst Pick for broad, marketlike exposure that’s cheap to hold.

VDE MSCI ESG Analytics Insight

Vanguard Energy ETF has an MSCI ESG Fund Rating of BBB based on a score of 5.34 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 Energy ETF ranks in the 47th percentile within its peer group and in the 56th percentile within the global universe of all funds covered by MSCI ESG Fund Ratings.
