is this fund closed to new investors as of 7 9 13?
I think so, easily verifiable @ V site or thru financial rep. Closed to new $$ some time ago. It's a good'n.
If the broker isn't already selling it or invested in it, Vanguard was not going to allow a new broker, institutional account to invest in the fund.
Vanguard website doesn't say the fund is closed. I don't think Vanguard goes through outside brokers.
Wouldn't want it at 31 but it's wonderful for 60+
