Vanguard VFINX
« on: March 13, 2015, 06:49:23 AM »
I see a lot of talk of Vanguard's VTSAX and VTSMX, but what about their VFINX?

Someone recommended it to me today and I'm wondering what the core differences are between the VFINX and the others. Anyone care to chime in?

VTSAX has a lower expense ratio on Admiral shares, and offers slightly more diversification with 3000+ companies vs 500.

I invest in VFINX in my HSA b/c its the best option.  but if VTSAX was available i would be there.
