Transcript

Welcome to our new, enhanced website. Based on extensive research and user testing, we’ve refreshed our homepage and global navigation to give you an easy, intuitive user experience.

On the homepage, you’ll see familiar content, but in a fresh new way.

The engaging new design makes each available option and action pop.

Highlights of the new global navigation include:

A more prominent login allowing us to remove “My Accounts” from the horizontal menu.

The “What We Offer” tab showcases Vanguard’s full suite of services, products, and plans.
It provides information from the tab previously labeled “Investing”.

We created a new section for rollovers and transfers, intuitively called “Move Money”.

See how we stand apart in the industry under “Why We’re Different”. We consolidated past content from “Benefits & Costs” to bring accessibility and security information to the forefront.

You can build your investment knowledge and learn more about the market from “Investor Resources & Education”. We combined what used to be “Advice & Retirement” with “News & Perspectives”. This is the gateway to all tax information, helpful tools and calculators, and Vanguard’s insightful economic and market commentary.

Over time you’ll continue to see improvements on our website designed to enhance your online experience.

Please click away on the site to discover more.
