Steps to Create This Folio

  1. We chose ETFs offered by Vanguard which are designed to closely track the following market indices:
    • MSCI US Small-Cap 1750 Growth Index
    • MSCI US Small-Cap 1750 Value Index
    These indexes are the growth and value subsets of the MSCI US Small-Cap 1750 Index, which includes the smallest 1,750 stocks component of the MSCI US Investable Market 2500 Index. The MSCI US Investable Market represents the 2,500 largest U.S. companies based on market capitalization.
  2. We equally weighted the ETFs in the folio.
