Vanguard REIT Index
Objective And StrategyObjective
Provide a high level of income and moderate long-term capital appreciation by tracking the performance of a benchmark index that measures the performance of publicly traded equity REITs.
StrategyThe Portfolio employs a passive management—or indexing—investment approach designed to track the performance of MSCI US REIT Index. The Index is composed of stocks of publicly traded equity real estate investment trusts (REITs). The Portfolio attempts to replicate the 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.
Low Cost Fund
To meet the needs of many policyholders, we offer access to a suite of low-cost funds for an additional fee ranging from 0.10%-0.35% of the total amount of assets invested in the fund(s). See prospectus for further details.
* The portfolio invests substantial assets in real estate investment trusts (REITS) that present risks not associated with investing in stock.
