Over 40 years ago, Vanguard first defied an entire industry. We've been making waves ever since.
We were built to empower investors like no other company because we don't have any outside owners to take our focus away from you. This allowed us to lower the cost of investing so you can keep more of your returns.
That revolutionary idea sparked a grass-roots movement among like-minded investors, who shared Vanguard's approach with family and friends. Now with over 20 million clients, we continue to build an investing community together that grows stronger every day. And it's one where you belong.
the investing world.
By consistently lowering the costs of mutual funds, we challenged other investment companies to follow our lead. Experts call it the "Vanguard Effect."
Vanguard created the first index fund for individual investors. Now, index funds have grown to over $4.7 trillion industry-wide.
We combined the best of high-touch and high-tech at a low cost. So a Vanguard advisor can help you plan and invest for retirement and other goals.
*Vanguard is client-owned. As a client owner, you own the funds that own Vanguard.
