Vanguard International High Dividend Yield Index Fund strikes a balance between dividend yield and risk. It offers a higher yield than the MSCI ACWI Ex USA Value Index and leans toward stable firms that are likely to continue making dividend payments. Our enhanced ratings framework places a greater emphasis on fees. This fund’s low fee gives it a considerable and durable advantage, sufficient to warrant an upgrade of its Morningstar Analyst Rating to Gold from Bronze.
