The Vanguard VSO ETF provides exposure to a diversified portfolio of Australian small caps and tracks the MSCI Australian Shares Small Cap Index. This is a low-cost way to access the performance of Australian small-cap shares through a single fund.
A Best ETFs No Rating rating is a fund rating our analysts apply to funds, LICs, mFunds, or ETFs that represents a ‘pending’ or ‘not yet researched’ status for the fund/ETF.
Please note, our rating methodology, research cycle, and process are currently being updated and will soon include full analyst ETF notes, reports, interviews, research, and ratings on select Australian ETFs and funds.

VSO invests in Australian small caps, which offer potential long-term capital growth opportunities. 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 through a single trade.
The VSO ETF could be used by investors to get exposure to a broad basket of smaller Australian-listed companies, which are likely to grow their profits over time. Navigating away from the largest ASX companies removes a lot of the exposure to the financial sector and could diversify your Australian portfolio allocation.
