Vanguard Fund Actions

Vanguard closes Strategic Equity Fund

Vanguard has stopped accepting new accounts in Vanguard® Strategic Equity Fund effective at 4 p.m., Eastern time, on Thursday, April 20, 2006. Existing shareholders with open fund accounts may continue to purchase new shares in their accounts.

Vanguard restricts investments in two funds

The boards of trustees of two Vanguard® mutual funds have raised the funds' minimum initial investment requirements and implemented annual purchase limits as a means of tempering cash inflows and protecting current shareholders.

Effective at 4 p.m., Eastern time, on April 20, 2006, the minimum initial investment for Vanguard® Wellington™ Fund and Vanguard Windsor™ II Fund was increased to $10,000 from $3,000.

In addition, each fund will limit purchases of shares to $25,000 per calendar year. For 2006, the annual limit will apply to purchases after April 20. This change will affect all retail accounts held by new and existing shareholders in both Investor and Admiral™ share classes.


Numbers is hard.

Retired in 2005 at age 58, no pension

Re: Vanguard Fund Actions

I guess they are being responsible.

In other VG news, they are starting a new fund today called Strategic Small Cap Equity fund. It is small cap blend. Sounds like it will be run similarly to the Strategic Equity fund (mid cap) that just closed.

Still waiting on news about their "dividend appreciation" fund.
