Tax-free transfers

In most cases, mutual funds from other companies, stocks, and bonds can be transferred to Vanguard "in-kind." With an in-kind transfer, the securities move without being sold. That means you can consolidate your assets at Vanguard without triggering capital gains taxes.

All investments are subject to risk. Bonds and bond funds have interest rate risk, the risk of issuer default, and inflation risk.
