Vanguard Lowers Minimum for Admiral Shares of Index Funds to $3,000

Vanguard Group is lowering the minimum amounts customers need to invest to get cheaper prices on more than three dozen of its index funds. The Wall Street Journal reports:

“The $5.3 trillion indexing giant’s move is the latest salvo in Vanguard’s push to lure investors from rivals at a time asset managers are under pressure to slash the costs of funds. Starting Monday, the firm is lowering the minimums for admiral shares—a share class that costs less than regular investor classes—to $3,000 from $10,000 for 38 index mutual funds. The funds make up the majority of Vanguard’s index funds that are available to individual investors and include some of the industry’s largest stock and bond index funds.”

Here’s what Vanguard officially announced: “Our index funds changed investing forever. Now we’re making them even better. We’re lowering costs for more than 1 million current index fund investors and giving new investors one more reason to choose Vanguard. To do that, we’re dropping the minimum investment for Admiral Shares on 38 index funds. Our Admiral Shares were previously available to investors with over $10,000 per fund. Now you’ll only need $3,000 to take advantage of the low expense ratios Admiral Shares offer. In turn, we’re eliminating higher-cost Investor Shares of those same index funds for individual investors.”
