What you can expect as a Vanguard client

Every decision that we make is shaped by the question "What's best for investors?"

With you for the long run

Millions of investors—including your loved one—have entrusted Vanguard with their financial futures. We don't take that responsibility lightly.

Vanguard's been meeting investors' needs since 1975. So the company you trust with your money today will be the same company serving you tomorrow. And more than $4.9 trillion in assets under management says a lot for that trust.*

A legacy of quality, service & convenience

High-quality funds

84% of Vanguard mutual funds and ETFs (exchange-traded funds) performed better than their peer-group averages over the past 10 years.** Our competitive performance is one reason our funds and ETFs so often appear on "best of" lists.

Easy ways to do business

Buy and sell your way—at your desktop, on your mobile device using our free app, or by phone.

Personal attention

If the balance in your Vanguard accounts is $50,000 or more, you'll qualify for additional services and lower costs.

How would you benefit from moving accounts to Vanguard?

Less time

When you consolidate your accounts with Vanguard Brokerage, you'll have one company to call and website to monitor. Plus, you'll receive one set of tax forms.

A clearer investment strategy

A consolidated view of both your Vanguard accounts and accounts that you hold elsewhere offers a good opportunity to make sure you have the right asset mix.

Lower costs

Our expenses and fees are among the lowest in the industry—in fact, they're 82% less than the industry's average.† And the less money taken out of your earnings, the more stays in your account.
