Vanguard is the client-owned investment company that is reducing cost and complexity for all investors.

Since our founding in 1975, we've believed that you shouldn't have to pay a lot for high-quality investment products and first-rate service, and that you deserve candid, clear information to help you make good investment decisions.

That's why Vanguard has always been...

Mission: Vanguard's mission is to help clients reach their financial goals by being the world's highest-value provider of investment products and services.

 In 1975, a small but uniquely structured mutual fund company came into being. More than a quarter-century later, Vanguard is internationally known for exceptional client service and the highest-value products in the industry.

Most investment firms are publicly traded or privately owned. Vanguard is different. We're owned by the Vanguard funds, which are owned by our clients. Helping our investors achieve their goals is our sole reason for existence. With no other parties to answer to and no conflicting loyalties, we can keep investing costs as low as possible.

At Vanguard, you'll be part of a culture that calls for doing what is right in every situation, every day.

Vanguard has grown from fewer than 50 crew members in our first year to more than 13,000 today, working in offices across North America, Europe, Asia, and Australia.
