Vanguard Wellington Option ​– Investment Strategy

The Vanguard Wellington Option invests 100% of its assets in the Vanguard Wellington Fund. The fund invests 60% to 70% of its assets in common stocks of established large companies that each pay dividends and (to a lesser extent) are non-dividend-paying. In choosing these companies, the advisor seeks those that appear to be undervalued but have prospects for improvement. These stocks are commonly referred to as value stocks. The remaining 30% to 40% of the fund's assets are invested mainly in fixed-income securities that the advisor believes will generate a moderate level of current income. These securities include investment-grade corporate bonds, with some exposure to U.S. Treasury and government agency bonds and mortgage-backed securities. The Vanguard Wellington Option is actively managed.
