Vanguard's index funds are designed to give you the tools you need to build low-cost diversified portfolios.
The Vanguard approach to indexing
Vanguard index tracker funds are designed to work as the building blocks of a successful investment portfolio. Core index providers are FTSE, MSCI and S&P Dow Jones for equities and Barclays for fixed income. Coverage includes emerging and developed markets, UK, Europe, Japan, Asia-Pacific and the US, as well as socially responsible investing (SRI). Funds are structured on the following characteristics:
to maximise returns to investors
tracking error for consistent performance
weighted to reflect the whole market
Our approach to costs
Running costs are covered by the Ongoing Charges Figure (OCF), which delivers exceptional value and is among the lowest in the industry.
We ask all investors to pay for their own significant transactions costs, such as Stamp Duty Reserve Tax and the trading expenses caused by investors entering or exiting the fund (dilution), rather than charging those to existing investors in the fund.

The value of investments, and the income from them, may fall or rise and investors may get back less than they invested.
