Vanguard International Dividend Appreciation uses a strict but sensible strategy to invest in profitable firms from developed and emerging markets. The strategy screens for stocks with consistent long-term dividend growth and caps individual weightings to reduce its exposure to stock-specific risks. This is a solid, attractively priced strategy, but the fund’s short track record limits its Morningstar Analyst Rating to Bronze.
