VTWG Fund Description

VTWG tracks an index of US small-cap growth stocks. The index selects from stocks ranked 1001-3000 by market cap based on EPS growth estimates and historical sales growth.

VTWG Factset Analytics Insight

VTWG is 1 of 2 funds tracking a traditional style index that divides the Russell 2000 Index into growth and value subsets using just two growth factors: IBES 2-year growth forecasts and 5-year historical sales-per-share growth. The fund avoids the mid-cap bias of our benchmark, but reaches into micro-cap stocks, which increases market risk. Sector biases are mild except for an overweight to healthcare and tech. The fund charges a bit less than rival IWO, but probably has higher all-in costs in many cases due IWO’s definitive liquidity edge. While it has lagged our benchmark recently, VTWG is still a perfectly viable choice for small-cap growth exposure.
