About VXF ETF
The Vanguard Mid and Small Cap ETF (VXF) tracks a market-cap-weighted version of the S&P Total Market Index, excluding all S&P 500 stocks and is managed by Vanguard that has a total AUM of $5.1T.
VXF is a great ETF when it comes to extended market exposure. The fund's index is constructed by removing the S&P 500 companies from the S&P Total Market Index (a broad index that includes more companies than S&P Composite 1500 Index). The resulting portfolio consists of everything from mid to micro-caps. Hence, the portfolio is meant to complement an existing allocation that relies on the S&P 500 for large cap exposure. The Fund replicates more than 95% of the market capitalization of the Index.
