Vanguard managed funds are an easy, low-cost way for you to invest. They pool together the money invested by many people and use it to invest in many companies at once, or securities such as bonds.
Our managed funds are low cost, so you keep more of your returns. Start investing from just $500, or $200 using Auto Invest.
In a single investment, managed funds provide access to hundreds and sometimes thousands of shares, bonds, or both, so you spread out your investment risk.
You can buy and sell managed funds easily and quickly through a Vanguard Personal Investor Account.
Managed fund units can be bought in fractions, so you can choose the exact dollar amount that you want to invest.
It’s easy to make regular automated investments into Vanguard managed funds, which over time will average out the price per unit that you pay.
There are no brokerage fees when you invest in Vanguard managed funds because they’re not listed on the stock exchange (ASX).

Simple, secure access
Invest easily, and monitor your portfolio, through both the Vanguard Personal Investor platform and our mobile app.

Expert management

Invest directly through Vanguard Personal Investor with an initial investment of $500, or $200 using Auto Invest.
