Vanguard funds and ETFs top Money's rankings

Feburary 12, 2018


Money magazine has published its annual Investor's Guide and, this year, 42 Vanguard products have made Money's 50 recommended mutual funds and 50 recommended ETFs lists.

Money selects funds and ETFs based on their:

  • Steady performance.
  • Low costs to investors.
  • Skilled and trustworthy managers.
  • Consistent investment strategy.

Of the 42 Vanguard products included, 23 are mutual funds and 19 are ETFs. Vanguard products have topped Money's rankings for the last 18 years, and this year is no exception. The highest number of mutual funds from another provider is 8; the highest number of ETFs from another provider is 13.

The 23 Vanguard mutual funds recommended by Money:


  • Money magazine is not affiliated with Vanguard or Vanguard funds. The article mentioned here is neither an offer to sell nor a solicitation of an offer to buy shares.
  • All investing is subject to risk, including the possible loss of the money you invest.
  • Vanguard ETF Shares are not redeemable with the issuing Fund other than in very large aggregations worth millions of dollars. Instead, investors must buy and 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.
