Important Information
All investing is subject to risk, including the possible loss of the money you invest.

Diversification does not ensure a profit or protect against a loss.

Investments in stocks or bonds issued by non-U.S. companies are subject to risks including country/regional risk and currency risk.

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.

For more information about Vanguard funds or Vanguard ETFs, visit to obtain a prospectus or, if available, a summary prospectus. Investment objectives, risks, charges, expenses, and other important information are contained in the prospectus; read and consider it carefully before investing.

  1. The video isn't accessible. I see there is a transcript right under the embedded video at, but it's impossible to stay in sync with the video and defeats the purpose (why don't you try that without audio and see?). YouTube has a tool that allows you to upload the transcript and automatically timecode accordingly. Not only it would make the video accessible, but it would also help with SEO which can be advantageous for Vanguard.
