Introducing Vanguard's Beacon app

Vanguard is introducing a new mobile app in a few short weeks—we're calling it Beacon. We invite you to download it and see what we've built so far. Get a feel for the new design—What matters to you? Which features do you love? And what would you like to see in the future?

We've been listening to you, and we want to hear more.

Keep the old, test-drive the new

Beacon is a fully secure, working app that enables you to view your accounts, track performance and perform some transactions. It's available to download in the App Store for iPhone or Google Play for the Android. Try it out and let us know what you think. If you've been using the Vanguard app, keep it installed. When Beacon beta is no longer supported, you can update the current Vanguard app to access the features you enjoyed in the test version.

Note: This hypothetical example does not represent any particular investment.

If you use our existing Vanguard app, keep it installed. In a few short weeks, when we launch the new and improved version, your Vanguard app will automatically update to reflect all the changes we incorporated into Beacon. And, the current Vanguard app will host exclusive features that won't be available in Beacon right away.

As you explore Beacon, share your feedback anytime by clicking the [+] icon in the top right corner of your screen.

We'll be ready to launch in a few short weeks. We'll send instructions when the time comes.

Not interested? No problem.

Our Vanguard app will still be available and fully functioning, so you can continue to use it normally. The Vanguard app lets you view your assets and personal performance; buy, sell, and exchange investments; perform research; use mobile check deposit; and access news and perspectives.

When Beacon is fully developed and ready to launch, your old Vanguard app will automatically update to incorporate our new features. And we'll notify you each time we release an update.
