Fund Description

The Vanguard Target Retirement 2050 Fund Investor Shares (VFIFX) is a target-date fund of funds. Using a specified glide path, VFIFX invests in four other Vanguard index funds. The fund provides exposure to both domestic stocks of all market caps as well as international stocks. Additionally, both domestic and foreign investment-grade bonds are included in the fund’s holdings. As VFIFX approaches 2050, it will reduce its exposure to equities and increase its holdings in fixed-income securities.

Expenses for the fund are low. Given its all-encompassing approach to retirement investing, VFIFX is perfect as a core option for investors.
