Vanguard’s unique advantages
It's important to know exactly what an investment management company stands for and what it can do for you. Three features of particular importance distinguish Vanguard from other firms:
A time-tested approach
Since our founding, Vanguard has been fiercely committed to several principles that guide our fund management, our investment programs, and the financial advice we give our clients. Together, these beliefs make up our distinct investment philosophy, which is the key to our—and our clients'—ongoing success.
While the principles we advocate are in the best interests of all investors, it stands to reason that you'd have a slightly different perspective depending on whether you're investing for yourself and your family, on behalf of an organization, or as an advisor on behalf of your clients.
Your interests are the only interests we serve
Most investment firms are either publicly traded or privately owned. Vanguard is different: We're client-owned. Helping our investors achieve their goals is literally our sole reason for existence. With no other parties to answer to and therefore no conflicting loyalties, we make every decision—like keeping investing costs as low as possible—with only your needs in mind.
