Vanguard VSO ETF (ASX:VSO)
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.
What does the VSO invest in?
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.
What do investors use VSO for?
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.
