Vanguard High-Yield Tax-Exempt Bond is relatively conservative compared with other muni strategies sporting the high-yield label, so much so that it lands in the muni national long Morningstar Category rather than the high-yield muni category. The strategy is managed by diligent leaders through a sensible and risk-conscious investment process and benefits from ultralow fees; its Admiral share class earns a Morningstar Analyst Rating of Gold, while the Investor share class is rated Silver.
