Four Funds Key To Vanguard

FYI: (Click On Article Title At Top Of Google Search)
A surge of new money into four giant index funds propelled Vanguard Group Inc. to a record 2014, according to new data released Wednesday by research firm Morningstar Inc.

Clients flooded the Malvern, Pa., mutual-fund company with $233 billion last year, according to Morningstar. Roughly $129 billion of that total went to four so-called passive funds that mimic the composition of bond and stock indexes, including a record $40 billion to the Vanguard Total Stock Market Index.

  • Too bad the Primecap funds and VHCOX are all closed to new investors.
  • @equalizer: you can look at Primecap's own line up (POSKX & POGRX - POAGX is closed to new investors).

    These folks manage Vanguard's Primecap funds; though ER at 0.62% and 0.63% are a tad higher than Vanguard's (Vanguards are 0.47%/0.44%) - but still low ER.
  • Top shelf them
  • I have been contemplating POSKX but I own FCNTX and YAFFX already and I don't want to be a fund collector.
