I was looking over the Vanguard Index Australian Shares Fund and found the number of holdings interesting.

Can you please explain why the benchmark has only 295 holdings? It was my understanding that by definition it should be comprised of the ASX200 plus and additional 100 smaller companies making a total of 300 holdings.

    Great question James and sorry for the late response.

    But we had fun answering your question on the latest AUA podcast - https://equitymates.com/podcast/109/
