5 Vanguard Dividend Funds

Kiplinger

Dividend mutual funds can be a smart way to gain diversified access to dividend stocks and Vanguard dividend funds are some of the best in this space of the mutual fund universe.

Investors looking to buy dividend funds typically want current income, long-term capital appreciation, a lower-risk alternative to growth stocks, or some combination of those three objectives.

Companies that pay dividends to shareholders are often firms that are in the mature stage of their respective life cycle. This often translates into steady, reliable growth in the long run.

To top off all of these qualities of dividend stocks and dividend funds, Vanguard’s funds are some of the cheapest funds to buy, which helps to keep more income and growth in the pockets of shareholders.

All of these funds have a minimum initial investment of $3,000.
