This page was last edited on 27 December , at Functionally, the biggest difference is that an ETF can be bought and sold when the market is open, because it's traded just like a stock. A mutual fund is transacted just once a day when the market closes. Expense ratios are similar: Vanguard funds have two classes — Investor and Admiral shares.

The ETF expense ratio mirrors the Admiral shares but has no minimum investment. Transaction fees waived in a Vanguard account: When you buy and sell shares of an ETF, you pay a transaction fee just as you would any other stock.

If you buy and sell shares of Vanguard ETFs within your Vanguard brokerage account, you do not pay a fee. If you buy and sell shares of Vanguard ETFs through another brokerage firm, you'll pay a transaction fee. Vanguard mutual funds have two classes — Investor Shares regular and Admiral Shares. The Admiral Shares also come with a lower expense ratio, usually matching the expense ratio of the corresponding ETF. Jim has a B.

I might put some in the REIT at a later date. The total international fund sounds interesting, as well. Thanks for putting this list together Jim! The funny thing is I still see advertisements all over the web for Vanguard. Great fund company and great founder! Good summary, I am a Vanguard fan myself. One of my newer editions not mentioned here is MGK, which I believe should always have good returns over the long term, over the past few years it has been a flyer.

As of late my broker, eTrade, offers a multitude of Vanguard ETFs without any load, and without any transaction fees. Your email address will not be published.

A clarification — many of the funds on the Marketwatch list are repeats. We don't have any repeats. In some cases, there is also an ETF version that shares the Admiral shares' low cost fee structure without the minimum. In our list below, when available we list the ETF version and you can read about the differences here.

Another important factors with index funds is tracking error, which is how much the fund deviates from the index itself. Indices change and funds have to adjust to match them, but Vanguard's funds have some of the lowest tracking errors.
