Since its beginning in 1975, Vanguard has grown to become one of the world’s largest investment management companies, with more than $3.01 trillion in U.S. fund assets as of March 31, 2015. Vanguard provides an extensive array of investment products, including a full range of low-cost ETFs and mutual funds designed to help financial advisors grow and preserve the wealth of their clients.
Most investment firms are either publicly traded or privately owned. Vanguard is different: They're owned by the Vanguard funds, which are owned by their clients. Vanguard makes every decision with only their clients’ needs in mind. Vanguard's unique structure, along with their commitment to provide outstanding performance and service at the lowest possible cost, provides financial advisors with many opportunities for building their businesses and enhancing their client relationships.
