Most investment firms are publicly traded or privately owned. Vanguard is different. We’re owned by our clients, which makes it easy to be 100% focused on doing what is right for them, in every situation, every day. Every member of our crew, especially those in senior leadership roles, shares this commitment.
Rise to the challenge of steering the Vanguard ship toward new and prosperous landings. Take command, directing and unifying crew members in our mission of providing exceptional, client-focused service. Find yourself leading the charge as Vanguard builds an even greater future on the solid foundation of our reputation for trust and integrity.
