VFH Fund Description

VFH tracks the performance of the MSCI US Investable Market Financials 25/50 Index, which includes the financial stocks of the top 98% of US market by capitalization.

VFH Factset Analytics Insight

VFH is a powerhouse in the US financials sector. Its market-cap selection and weighting scheme renders it similar to our benchmark, with a portfolio that captures the broader financials market well. It holds slightly more stocks than our benchmark thanks in part to a broader definition of financials. It trades well, with excellent underlying liquidity. VFH is particularly distinguished by a low fee compared to its competitors within its segment, and efficient tracking. The lone black mark on the fund is its lack of daily disclosure, but that comes with the territory when dealing with Vanguard ETFs. It shouldn't scare investors off of VFH, which delivers excellent exposure at tiny all-in cost.Note: In September 2016, the fund sold off all of its REITs (except for mortgage REITs)—a substantial part of the portfolio. It did so to comply with a change in GICS methodology, the sector framework supporting its underlying index. It increased its allocation to remaining financial industries in accord with the revamped underlying index.
