Vanguard VAS ETF (ASX:VAS)
The Vanguard VAS ETF provides exposure to the largest 300 Australian shares, based on market capitalisation. This is a low-cost way to access top Australian companies through a single fund.
What does the VAS invest in?
The VAS ETF invests in Australian shares, which offer growth and income potential. You could buy all of these companies yourself using a share brokerage account, but that would be a very expensive and time-consuming process. ETFs are an effective way to invest in an entire sector or index through a single trade.
What do investors use VAS for?
The VAS ETF could be used by investors to get exposure to a broad basket of Australia’s largest public companies, which are likely to grow their profit over time and pay regular tax-effective dividends to their shareholders.
