The following are VCSCX weaknesses from our perspective:

  • VCSCX net assets are $19.10 million. This fund is not a popular choice with retail investors.
  • VCSCX expense ratio is 2.03%, which is not negligible. Is the fund expensive to you, and does it align to your investment strategy?

A 12b-1 fee is an annual marketing or distribution fee on a mutual fund. Deferred sales load is a back-end sales charge and is imposed when an investor redeems shares.
