VOX Fund Description

VOX tracks a market-cap-weighted index of US communication services companies.

VOX Factset Analytics Insight

VOX holds companies that provide communication services, as defined by the GICS revision of 2018. That means the fund includes traditional telecoms as well as media and internet services companies that were previously classified in the consumer discretionary and tech sectors. Its Fit score suffers because our chosen segment benchmark remains telecom-only, but VOX does an excellent job at providing neutral exposure to the GICS-defined sector. Like the market, the fund is concentrated in just a few heavyweights like Alphabet (Google), Facebook, and Verizon. VOX is large, cheap, and liquid, and it tracks its index well. Its one drawback is transparency: like all Vanguard ETFs, VOX discloses its holdings monthly instead of daily.Prior to May 3, 2018, VOX tracked the MSCI US Investable Market Telecommunication Services 25/50 Index. The fund tracked a transition index until December 3, 2018.
