Vanguard Index Funds - Vanguard Small-Cap Growth ETF (NYSEMKT: VBK)
NYSEMKT:VBK (Vanguard Index Funds - Vanguard Small-Cap Growth ETF)
The investment seeks to track the performance of a benchmark index that measures the investment return of small-capitalization growth stocks. The fund employs an indexing investment approach designed to track the performance of the CRSP US Small Cap Growth Index, a broadly diversified index of growth stocks of small U.S. companies. The advisor attempts to replicate the target index by investing all, or substantially all, of its assets in the stocks that make up the index, holding each stock in approximately the same proportion as its weighting in the index.
