Vanguards' Core Purpose
To take a stand for all investors, to treat them fairly, and to give them the best chance for investment success.
Your interests are the only interests we serve.
Most investment firms are either publicly traded or privately owned. Vanguard is different. We're client owned. Helping our investors achieve their goals is literlaly our sole reason for existence. With no other parties to answer to and therefore no conflicting loyalties, we make every decision - like keeping investing costs as low as possile - with only your needs in mind.
Your employer makes regular contributions to your Vanguard retirement account.
You are immediately eligible, enrolled automatically, and always 100% vested. However, you must designate how you want the contributions invested, or they will be invested automatically in a date-specific Vanguard® Target Retirement Fund based on your age today and a retirement age of 65.
