Buying shares using wire transfer


If you hold Vanguard mutual funds in a Vanguard Brokerage Account, please call us for instructions if you want to use wire transfers.

For all other accounts, give the information below to your bank. We don't charge a fee to accept a wire transfer, but your bank may assess an outgoing wire fee. If you're making a large purchase, please call us first. Vanguard reserves the right to reject any purchase for any reason, including a negative impact on fund's operation or performance.

Note: If the wire transfer is received by Vanguard on a business day before the close of regular trading on the NYSE (generally 4 p.m., Eastern time), the trade date will be the same day. If the wire transfer is received after the close of regular trading, or on a nonbusiness day, the trade date will be the next business day.

To initiate a wire transfer, you'll need to take the following information to your bank:
