Vanguard asset allocation ETFs

Vanguard asset allocation ETFs are designed to simplify investing, while managing risk through balance and global diversification.

Each of our five asset allocation ETFs is an all-in-one portfolio that invests in a different blend of several core Vanguard ETFs. Regular rebalancing aims to maintain the portfolios' respective allocations and keep risk levels in line with investors' goals and risk tolerance. View this infographic to learn more.
