Vanguard Mid-Cap Growth Index is one of the cheapest mid-cap growth funds available. On top of its considerable cost advantage, it effectively diversifies risk and keeps turnover low. Under our new ratings framework, which places a greater focus on fees, the fund's cheapest share classes warrant a Morningstar Analyst Rating upgrade to Gold from Silver. Owing to its relatively higher fee, the Investor share class retains its Silver rating.
