Paying too much for your mutual funds or ETFs? 

The less you pay in investment expenses, the more of your returns you get to keep—an advantage that can compound over time. That's why it can be smart to choose a fund or an exchange-traded fund (ETF) with a lower expense ratio. See how much you could save by comparing your fund's costs with the costs of a similar Vanguard fund or ETF.

Before investing, always consider whether a fund or an ETF is appropriate for your financial goals and understand its investment objectives, strategies, and risks.

You must buy and sell Vanguard ETF Shares through a broker, who may charge commissions. Vanguard ETF Shares are not redeemable directly with the issuing Fund other than in very large aggregations worth millions of dollars. ETFs are subject to market volatility. When buying or selling an ETF, you will pay or receive the current market price, which may be more or less than net asset value.
