Why Vanguard Funds and ETFs?

We believe in a diversified, low-cost, tax-efficient portfolio tailored to your investment needs. We will construct your portfolio using a time-tested investment methodology. We use a combination of exchange- traded funds (ETFs) and mutual funds to create an asset allocation strategy that is appropriate for your unique situation. The most common ETFs are designed to track the performance of a market benchmark, or “Index.” The benefits to using ETFs are tax-efficiency and low cost.

Your accounts can work harder for you when they're not dragged down by high costs. The less you pay, the more you keep. It's really that simple. You'll have more money working for your benefit with the low costs of Vanguard Funds and ETFs compared with the industry average.
