The following are VMICX weaknesses from our perspective:

  • VMICX net assets are $236.30 million. This fund is not a popular choice with retail investors.
  • VMICX 3-year return is 3.62%, which is lower than the 3-year return of the benchmark index (S&P Municipal Bond TR), 4.51%.
  • VMICX 5-year return is 3.12%, which is lower than the 5-year return of the benchmark index (S&P Municipal Bond TR), 3.83%.

  • VMICX expense ratio is 1.57%, which is not negligible. Is the fund expensive to you, and does it align to your investment strategy?
  • Warning: this fund has a 12b1 and deferred sales fee. The maximum 12b1 fee is 1%, while the maximum deferred sales load is 1%. 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.
