Find out if your fund is declaring a quarterly dividend in March

March 09, 2017

The table below lists Vanguard mutual funds and exchange-traded funds (ETFs) that will distribute quarterly income dividends in March 2017.

Each fund's per-share dividend rate is posted on the vanguard.com distributions page on the fund's declaration date. Once the distribution amount is posted, you can log on to your account and view dividends for funds you own. The record date, payable date, reinvestment date, and other fund dividend information will also be available.

Don't see your fund?

Not all mutual funds distribute dividends on a quarterly basis. Some dividends are issued monthly, semiannually, or annually. See our distributions page for a complete list of all scheduled distributions.

Don't "buy a dividend"

Before you invest a large amount in a mutual fund, ask about the realized gains in its portfolio. If they represent a significant portion of the fund's net asset value and the record date of the next capital gains distribution is near, you may want to delay your purchase until after the record date. Otherwise, you'll "buy the dividend," and that can cost you money in taxes. Learn more about this »

Also, be aware that when a fund pays a distribution, its share price may drop that day, even if the broader market rises.

Notes:

  • All investing is subject to risk, including the possible loss of the money you invest.
  • Past performance cannot be used to predict future returns.
  • Vanguard ETF Shares are not redeemable with the issuing fund other than in very large aggregations worth millions of dollars. Instead, investors must buy or sell Vanguard ETF Shares in the secondary market and hold those shares in a brokerage account. In doing so, the investor may incur brokerage commissions and may pay more than net asset value when buying and receive less than net asset value when selling.
