Vanguard Funds by Style Box

Past performance is no guarantee of future returns. The performance of an index is not an exact representation of any particular investment, as you cannot invest directly in an index.

Vanguard uses a 9-box grid called a "style box" to show how our domestic stock fund holdings are distributed by primary investment style (growth, value, or blend) and market capitalization category (large-, mid-, and small-cap companies).

Knowing a fund's investment style can help you understand how it might fit in your portfolio. This information can also help you build a portfolio that's broadly diversified across markets and less susceptible to sharp swings in any one market area.
