Tax-efficient investing

Minimize your tax burden with guidance from our tax strategists

Vanguard Personal Advisor Services® can help guide you through the best ways to minimize your tax burden. We'll allocate assets between taxable and tax-advantaged accounts, and when the time comes to withdraw your money, we'll help you develop a tax-smart distribution plan.

You'll also receive advice on choosing accounts with tax benefits, buying investments that are prone to a lower tax bite, and making strategic moves before year-end to help cut your tax bill.

Personal trust services

Preserve your vision without the administrative challenges

You've worked hard to accumulate your wealth, and you want to make sure those assets are protected and distributed according to your wishes. Whether you already have a trust or are considering one, it's important to select the right trustee to oversee it. Since a trust can last for many years, your trustee needs to have the expertise, time, dedication, and commitment to carry out the long-term obligations of the role. Vanguard National Trust Company (VNTC) has the fiduciary experience to serve as a professional trustee on your behalf. VNTC will support you by:

  • Providing objective expertise in trust administration, including in-depth understanding of the applicable laws, taxes, accounting requirements, and fiduciary responsibilities.
  • Ensuring investment decisions are prudent and support the trust's objectives.
  • Maintaining a stable, continuous relationship with your beneficiaries that won't be affected by age, illness, or personal issues.
