VGT Fund Description

VGT tracks a market-cap-weighted index of information technology companies.

VGT Factset Analytics Insight

VGT is one of the most diverse market-cap-weighted technology ETFs available, yet it still reflects the concentrated nature of the space. It represents the market well, including more small- and micro-caps than most of the other broad tech sector funds while still managing to keep all-in costs extremely low. Definitions of “tech” differ from fund to fund: VGT includes credit card firms but excludes telecoms. Gaming and internet services companies were moved to sibling VOX following a GICS revision in 2018. (Note that Fidelity’s FTEC tracks a nearly identical index). VGT reliably delivers the returns of its underlying index. For investors who want broad, plain-vanilla exposure to the US technology market at low cost, VGT gets it done. From May 3 to December 3, 2018, VGT tracked a transitional version of index that incrementally removed exposure to reclassified companies.

VGT MSCI ESG Analytics Insight

Vanguard Information Technology ETF has an MSCI ESG Fund Rating of A based on a score of 6.03 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 Information Technology ETF ranks in the 47th percentile within its peer group and in the 62nd percentile within the global universe of all funds covered by MSCI ESG Fund Ratings.
