Vanguard Utilities Index Fund ETF Shares (NYSE:VPU) seeks to track the performance of a benchmark index.

The Advisor attempts to replicate the target index by seeking to invest all, or substantially all, of its assets in the stocks that make up the index, in order to hold each stock in approximately the same proportion as its weighting in the index.
