VGT Fund Description

The Vanguard Information Technology ETF tracks a market-cap-weighted index of technology companies, drawing its securities from the top 98% of US market capitalization.

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. “Tech”; definitions differ from fund to fund: VGT includes credit card firms but excludes telecoms. (Note that competitor FTEC tracks a near-identical index.) VGT reliably delivers the returns of its underlying index. What's more, it's is one of the largest and most liquid funds in its segment, making it easy to trade both small and large positions at will. For investors who want broad, plain-vanilla exposure to the US technology market at low cost, VGT gets it done.VGT’s index is designed to transition the fund’s exposure to the newly defined Information Technology sector under GICS. The transition is expected to be completed by September 2018. Prior to May 3, 2018, the fund tracked the MSCI US Investable Market Information Technology 25/50 Index.
