1 Vanguard ETF strategic model portfolios September 30, 2014 For financial advisors AND INSTITUTIONs only. Not for public distribution.

2 Broadly diversified portfolios with your choice of respected benchmarks Regardless of your clients allocation needs or your benchmark preference, Vanguard offers a suitable market-weighted model portfolio. With Vanguard ETF strategic model portfolios, you and your clients also have the advantages of our remarkably low costs, deep indexing experience, and trusted name. Vanguard models are a good fit for your client portfolios Mutual fund (active) Take advantage of the experience of a proven leader Vanguard ETF strategic model portfolios are created and maintained by our Investment Strategy Group, whose responsibility it is to develop and maintain Vanguard s investment methodology, including portfolio construction and asset allocation modeling. The group draws from Vanguard s 40 years of indexing experience to ensure that our model portfolios reflect our belief that investment success hinges on asset allocation, broad diversification, and low cost. A firm belief in a top-down approach Asset allocation Sub-asset allocation Investment selection ETF (passive) Vanguard ETF models Strategic Ideal core portfolio strategy Excellent tactical strategy complement Features Broad-market exposure Lower return variability Tactical Greater potential level of tax efficiency Multiple options that span the risk-reward spectrum Our approach starts with broad asset class exposure to U.S. and international equities, and global investmentgrade bonds in a strategic, index-centric framework. Portfolio construction reflects a market-cap-weighted approach, with exposure to size and style determined by the benchmark. Our ETF portfolios pursue no tactical overlays or factor bets within their asset classes. Our portfolio sub-asset allocations also employ a fixed 70%/30% ratio of U.S. and international stocks, as well as an 80%/20% ratio of U.S. and international bonds, which reflects a deliberate home bias relative to global market-cap-weighted benchmarks.

3 Core series Our most straightforward portfolios include broadly diversified domestic and international equity and bond Vanguard ETFs. In addition, each portfolio features remarkably low costs and the potential for fewer capital gains. Choose from six allocation models that span the risk/reward spectrum. Asset allocation (% equity/fixed income) 1 Expense Vanguard ETF/ticker ratio 2 0/100 20/80 40/60 60/40 80/20 100/0 Domestic equity Total Stock Market VTI 0.05% 0.0% 13.7% 27.4% 41.2% 54.9% 68.6% International equity Total International Stock VXUS 0.14% 0.0% 5.9% 11.8% 17.6% 23.5% 29.4% Domestic fixed income Total Bond Market BND 0.08% 78.4% 62.7% 47.0% 31.4% 15.7% 0.0% International fixed income Total International Bond BNDX 0.20% 19.6% 15.7% 11.8% 7.8% 3.9% 0.0% Money market fund 2.0% 2.0% 2.0% 2.0% 2.0% 2.0% Weighted expense ratio 0.10% 0.10% 0.09% 0.09% 0.08% 0.08% 1 The weights were determined based on market characteristics, Vanguard philosophy, and the availability of the ETFs in the Vanguard lineup. Some of the investable universe may be lost when moving from a broad ETF to a group of narrower ETFs. Portfolio weights were determined by dividing the market value of the underlying benchmark by the total market value of all the underlying benchmarks within the asset group. Because of rounding, weights may not add up to 100%. 2 As reported in each ETF s most recent prospectus as of September 30, The current expense ratio may be higher or lower than the figure shown.

Box 2900 Valley Forge, PA Connect with Vanguard > advisors.vanguard.com > For more information on Vanguard funds and Vanguard ETF Shares, visit advisors.vanguard.com or call to obtain a prospectus. Investment objectives, risks, charges, expenses, and other important information are contained in the prospectus; read and consider it carefully before investing. Vanguard ETF Shares are not redeemable with the issuing Fund other than in Creation Unit aggregations. Instead, investors must buy or sell Vanguard ETF Shares in the secondary market with the assistance of a stockbroker. In doing so, the investor may incur brokerage commissions and may pay more than net asset value when buying and receive less than net asset value when selling. An investment in a money market fund is not insured or guaranteed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or any other government agency. Although a money market fund seeks to preserve the value of your client s investment at $1 per share, it is possible to lose money by investing in such a fund. The Vanguard ETFs are not sponsored, endorsed, sold, or promoted by Barclays. Barclays does not make any representation regarding the advisability of investing in Vanguard ETFs or the advisability of investing in securities generally. Barclays only relationship with Vanguard is the licensing of the Index which is determined, composed, and calculated by Barclays without regard to Vanguard or the Vanguard ETFs. Barclays has no obligation to take the needs of Vanguard or the owners of the Vanguard ETFs into consideration in determining, composing, or calculating the Index. Barclays has no obligation or liability in connection with administration, marketing, or trading of the Vanguard ETFs. Please remember that all investments involve some risk. Be aware that fluctuations in the financial markets and other factors may cause declines in the value of your account. There is no guarantee that any particular asset allocation or mix of funds will meet your investment objectives or provide you with a given level of income. Prices of mid- and small-cap stocks often fluctuate more than those of large-company stocks. Investments in stocks or bonds issued by non-u.s. companies are subject to risks including country/regional risk and currency risk. These risks are especially high in emerging markets. Bond funds are subject to the risk that an issuer will fail to make payments on time, and that bond prices will decline because of rising interest rates or negative perceptions of an issuer s ability to make payments. Investors cannot invest directly in an index. Diversification does not ensure a profit or protect against a loss. Vanguard is not responsible for determining the suitability for any underlying client on whose behalf you use this information. As an investment advisor, it remains your responsibility to make a suitability determination for your clients, so you should review carefully the information presented and the fund s prospectus for more complete information regarding any fees, expenses, investment objectives, and risks, and make your own determination as to its appropriateness before you rely on it The Vanguard Group, Inc.
