The less you pay, the more you keep

It's really that simple. You'll have more money working for your benefit with our low costs compared with the industry average.

Keep more with our low financial advisor fee of only 0.30%

You'll get the benefit of a Vanguard advisor, a customized financial plan, ongoing investment advice, and more for an annual cost of 0.30% of your assets under management. That's less than one-third the industry average of 1.02%.*

See what our lower fee could mean for you

For example, with a $250,000 investment, the low cost of our advice service is only $750 annually compared with the industry average of $2,550. That means you'd keep $1,800 more annually invested toward reaching your goals. And there's no fee for leaving the service.

Over a 20-year period, with compounding, that puts $96,798 more in your portfolio working for you. And that could help your investments last longer.

Our low-cost advice compared with the industry average

These pie charts compare the potential difference between the low cost of our advice service compared with the industry average over a 20-year period.

The examples show that an initial portfolio of $250,000, over a 20-year period with compounding, grows to $660,802 after an industry average fee of 1.02% is deducted, compared with the same initial portfolio balance over the same period growing to $757,600 after our fee of only 0.30% is deducted. This means that with Vanguard Personal Advisor Services, you keep $96,798 more working for you.
