Yep looks like VHGEX is performing better than VTWSX.
It also has a higher MER by .30 ( .51% vs .21%)
And the turn-over rate is 45% vs 15% so this would create issues in a taxable account at least I would think it would.
After 5 years the winner is.. the managed fund. After expenses. Turnover in an IRA is of no consequence. Vanguard & Wellington do a good job with their managed funds. I think any boat even the index boat could develop a leak. Here I am just askin for trouble.
This community was started in 2002 as an alternative to a then fee only Motley Fool. The focus of the discussions is on topics related to early retirement and financial independence. The community is moderated to ensure a pleasant experience for our members.
