In this webcast excerpt, Vanguard CEO Tim Buckley discusses one of the company's most distinguishing features—our focus on clients' results.


Massy Williams: "Vanguard built a reputation as a low-cost mutual fund provider, but it is no longer the only player in that space. What will distinguish Vanguard when you think about the low-cost option in the coming years?"
