That’s exciting. There have been a few threads about this fund for a while. Based on those threads I contacted Vanguard and told them I was interested in this fund getting its own admiral class. I figured customer feedback couldn’t hurt.jhfenton wrote: ↑Mon Nov 19, 2018 12:45 pmAnd the answer is YES!

For those not behind the paywall.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.
Does anyone know what these are? Someone mentioned Total World in a separate thread. Is my VSS/VFSVX (All-World ex-US Small Cap) dream coming true?The firm is also launching new admiral shares on five index funds with those new minimums.

Like everyone else I am getting the “you have no eligible funds” message even though I do. Also my brokerage option inside my 401k doesn’t have the same icons so I suspect I will have to manually exchange those for the admiral. But I’m okay with that. I can be patient and wait a couple weeks while they work out the kinks.
