You own us
Vanguard's unique corporate ownership structure promotes a consistent focus on you—our plan sponsor client. Unlike other companies in the defined contribution (DC) industry that are publicly traded or owned by a small group of individuals, Vanguard is owned by our clients. We’ve never been in a position of having to trade what’s best for clients for what’s best for the owners of the company because they are one and the same.
In turn, you benefit from our single-minded focus—helping investors reach their savings goals. From overall product and service decisions, to the dedication of each crew member, our culture emphasizes doing our very best every day to help you and your participants succeed.
In short, with no other parties to answer to, your best interests are at the heart of every decision we make.
