Vanguard Real Estate Index maximizes the impact of its ultralow fee by accurately representing the broad U.S. real estate market. Its well-diversified, market-cap-weighted portfolio should be difficult to beat over the long term. The Admiral, Institutional, and exchange-traded fund share classes earn Morningstar Analyst Ratings of Gold. A higher fee limits the Investor shares to a Silver rating.
