Income estimates for funds of funds include estimated income dividends from the underlying funds in which they invest. We plan to provide updated Vanguard Managed Payout Fund information by December 18, 2017.
Note: Vanguard Precious Metals and Mining Fund isn’t currently expected to pay a dividend.
This is an updated and expanded version of the information announced on this website on November 10, 2017. However, the information presented here isn’t final. Dividend amounts are estimated through December 31, 2017, and may change based on the net income a fund actually earns in December. All estimates are subject to change as a result of share purchase or redemption activity through each fund’s declaration date.
To see final year-end distribution rates for a fund you own, check the fund’s profile in the Investment products area of our website after the fund’s declaration date in mid- to late December. In early January, the funds’ Distributions tab will be updated to include year-end distributions for all funds.

The performance data shown represent past performance, which is not a guarantee of future results.

Vanguard ETF Shares are not redeemable with the issuing fund other than in very large aggregations worth millions of dollars. Instead, investors must buy and sell Vanguard ETF Shares in the secondary market and hold those shares in a brokerage account. In doing so, the investor may incur brokerage commissions and may pay more than net asset value when buying and receive less than net asset value when selling.
