The best Vanguard Lifestrategy alternatives

6 min Read Published: 27 Oct 2023

The Vanguard LifeStrategy fund range is a popular choice among investors as it provides a way to access low-cost globally diversified bond/equity funds with varying degrees of investment risk. There are five funds within the range with equity exposure ranging from 20% to 100%. These are namely:

  • Vanguard Lifestrategy 20% Equity
  • Vanguard Lifestrategy 40% Equity
  • Vanguard Lifestrategy 60% Equity
  • Vanguard Lifestrategy 80% Equity
  • Vanguard Lifestrategy 100% Equity

In fact, such is the popularity of the Vanguard Lifestrategy range that the Vanguard Lifestrategy 60% Equity fund is the largest within its sector (Mixed Investment 40-85% Shares) with over £13 billion under management. Across all five Lifestrategy funds there is a total of £35.6 billion under management.

The range of funds has an almost cult-like status among some die-hard investors, largely thanks to strong performance over the long-term, although that performance was hit hard during the bond market rout of 2022.
