Investment products

Investors love Vanguard products. 74% of our funds have performed better than their peer-group averages over the past 10 years.*

Exchange-traded funds offer more flexibility than traditional funds.

You don't need thousands of dollars to purchase a Vanguard ETF. Low minimums, diversification, and low costs make these investments competitive.

Lower your investment risk by choosing a mutual fund instead of an individual stock or bond.

ESG funds are subject to ESG investment risk, which is the chance that the stocks screened by the index sponsor for ESG criteria generally will underperform the stock market as a whole or that the particular stocks selected will, in the aggregate, trail returns of other funds screened for ESG criteria.

You must buy and sell Vanguard ETF Shares through Vanguard Brokerage Services (we offer them commission-free) or through another broker (which may charge commissions). See the Vanguard Brokerage Services commission and fee schedules directly with the issuing fund other than in very large aggregations worth millions of dollars. ETFs are subject to market volatility. When buying or selling an ETF, you will pay or receive the current market price, which may be more or less than net asset value.
