Vanguard REIT ETF (VNQ)


The Vanguard REIT ETF is an exchange-traded share class of Vanguard REIT Index Fund, which employs a "passive management" - or indexing - investment approach designed to track the performance of the MSCI US REIT Index, a benchmark of U.S. property trusts that covers about two-thirds of the value of the entire U.S. REIT market. The fund intends to remain at least 98% invested in REIT stocks; the remaining assets will be in cash investments to maintain liquidity for shareholder redemptions. In seeking to match the index, the advisor does not try to predict or profit from changes in the direction of the REIT market. The fund's cash holding will result in small differences between the returns of the fund and those of the MSCI US REIT Index.
