VHT Fund Description

VHT tracks the MSCI U.S. Investable Market Health Care 25/50 Index, which includes health care stocks pulled from the top 98% of the total US stock market capitalization.

VHT Factset Analytics Insight

VHT offers broad exposure in a large and liquid wrapper. It's a cap-weighted fund that holds over 300 US health care firms, stretching across multiple industries from the broadly defined health care space. The fund’s large basket stems from its total market universe. VHT is cheap to hold with a low fee and excellent tracking. It has healthy liquidity too, although competitor XLV sees greater volume and tighter spreads. Like all Vanguard funds, VHT has limited transparency, as holdings are only published monthly with a roughly two week delay. However, for the long- term investor looking for broad coverage, a lack of transparency shouldn’t be a deal breaker. VHT wins Analyst Pick for broad, cheap coverage of the US healthcare space. Note: competitor FHLC tracks a very similar MSCI index.

VHT MSCI ESG Analytics Insight

Vanguard Health Care ETF has an MSCI ESG Fund Rating of BBB based on a score of 4.55 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 Health Care ETF ranks in the 30th percentile within its peer group and in the 52nd percentile within the global universe of all funds covered by MSCI ESG Fund Ratings.
