Whenever you're facing a complex situation or change in circumstances, a dedicated representative will coordinate personalized, expert help that's tailored to your needs.

You'll also have access to these important benefits:

  • Financial advice from a Certified Financial Planner™ professional through Vanguard Personal Advisor Services®. Our advisors can help you with specific investment questions or provide ongoing advisory and portfolio management services.
  • Access to thousands of commission-free ETFs and no-transaction-fee mutual funds from Vanguard and hundreds of other companies.**
  • Discounted brokerage trades, including 25 additional commission-free trades for stocks, options, transaction-fee mutual funds, and non-Vanguard ETFs not included in the commission-free offer.†

As your needs grow, your support will too

Once you've accumulated $5 million or more in Vanguard assets, you'll become a Flagship Select client, which provides the extensive wealth management services you need.
