About our asset allocation ETFs

All-in-one diversified portfolios

Vanguard asset allocation ETFs

Vanguard is one of the world's leading asset managers, with $8.5 trillion USD in assets under management (AUM) globally. We are a leader in single-fund solutions, with more than $1.4 trillion USD in AUM in balanced, target-date and target-risk funds combined.1

 

All-in-one diversified portfolios

Vanguard asset allocation ETFs are designed to simplify investing while managing risk through balance and global diversification.

Each of our six asset allocation ETFs is an all-in-one portfolio that invests in a different blend of several underlying core Vanguard ETFs. Regular rebalancing aims to maintain the portfolios' respective allocations and keep risk levels in line with investors' goals and risk tolerance.

Like the rest of our product lineup, Vanguard asset allocation ETFs are low cost, helping investors potentially earn more over time.

Commissions, management fees, and expenses all may be associated with investment funds. Investment objectives, risks, fees, expenses, and other important information are contained in the prospectus; please read it before investing.

All investment funds, including those that seek to track an index are subject to risk, including the possible loss of principal. Diversification does not ensure a profit or protect against a loss in a declining market. While the Vanguard ETFs are designed to be as diversified as the original indices they seek to track and can provide greater diversification than an individual investor may achieve independently, any given ETF may not be a diversified investment.
