YLC Retirement Update – March2015

Vanguard Diversified Index Funds upgraded by Lonsec

Regular readers of my newsletters will know that I am a strong supporter of the index style of investing and often recommend the Vanguard Diversified Index Funds to help meet my clients wealth accumulation goals.

Therefore I was pleased to learn this week that the research company, Lonsec, have upgraded their rating of the four Vanguard Diversified Index Funds (Conservative, Balanced, Growth and High Growth) to Recommended from Investment Grade.

The ‘Recommended” rating indicates that Lonsec has a strong conviction the financial product can generate risk adjusted returns in line with relevant objectives.

Whilst I don’t like to read too much into Research ratings it is always encouraging to see a good rating for managed funds I often recommend.
