Vanguard Health Care still has a personnel edge over its competition, and its other strengths remain intact. Both of its share classes retain their Morningstar Analyst Ratings of Silver.

Jean Hynes became the CEO of subadvisor Wellington Management Company in June 2021, as expected, and she continues to serve as the sole manager of this strategy. Although Hynes' CEO role adds significant responsibilities to her work running this large healthcare portfolio, she has been spending a significant portion of her time on executive functions for years and shed other duties in anticipation of becoming CEO. Hynes' overall workload is reasonable, and she remains one of the most experienced and talented healthcare investors around. She also draws on Wellington’s seasoned and skilled healthcare team, including the four managers on Hartford Healthcare HGHAX (which is a Morningstar Medalist).

This strategy's process, which is distinctive and sound, hasn't changed. In particular, Hynes continues to look for innovative firms with differentiated products or services and attractive valuations relative to their growth prospects; she continues to allow stock selection to drive industry exposures; and she continues to pay ample attention to foreign stocks. Indeed, the strategy currently has a pretty hefty stake in the pharmaceuticals industry, a relatively modest potion in the healthcare equipment and supplies industry, and a 27.4% weighting in foreign healthcare stocks.

This strategy has posted disappointing returns over the short- and mid-term periods, partly because its foreign exposure has been burdensome as international healthcare stocks have gained much less than their U.S. counterparts. However, though foreign healthcare stocks have also underperformed since Hynes took the helm in January 2013 and since she joined the management team in June 2008, the strategy has posted good risk-adjusted returns over both periods. And both share classes have low expense ratios that provide the strategy with an advantage going forward.

For all these reasons, this strategy remains a superior choice for investors seeking geographically diverse healthcare exposure.

Throwing the hem of his blouse over the girl's shoulders, he stroked the small breasts with obvious pleasure and easily pinched the nipples. Masha fell into a daze, frightened and not knowing what to do.

The owner of the house took a step back, admired the half-naked girl, and calmly said: - Tell me something: well, let's say: about the Italian.
