Mutual ownership

Since Vanguard’s founding in 1975, we’ve put investors first. That's because we're actually owned by the investors who own Vanguard funds.1 And because our investors are our owners, there are no conflicting loyalties getting in the way of our focusing on their interests. Which means we can bypass any third party (because there aren’t any) to help bring better financial outcomes to our clients. 
1Vanguard is owned by its funds, which are owned by Vanguard’s fund shareholder clients.

Looking for the right investment product for your insurance account? We’re happy to help.

Vanguard ETF Shares are not redeemable with the issuing fund other than in very large aggregations worth millions of dollars. Instead, investors must buy and sell Vanguard ETF Shares in the secondary market and hold those shares in a brokerage account. In doing so, the investor may incur brokerage commissions and may pay more than net asset value when buying and receive less than net asset value when selling.

All investing is subject to risk, including the possible loss of the money you invest. Diversification does not ensure a profit or protect against a loss.

NAIC designations are the intellectual property of the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC) and are redistributed here under License. An NAIC designation is a proprietary symbol used by the NAIC Securities Valuation Office (SVO) to denote a category or band of credit risk (i.e., the likelihood of repayment in accordance with a written contract) for an issuer or for a security. NAIC designations may be notched up or down to reflect the position of a specific liability in the issuer's capital structure and/or the existence of other nonpayment risk in the specific security. Under NAIC reporting rules, shares of an ETF are presumed to be reportable as common stock. The SVO may classify an ETF as a bond or preferred stock and assign it an NAIC designation if it meets defined criteria. For a discussion of these criteria please call the SVO or refer to the Purposes and Procedures Manual of the NAIC Securities Valuation Office. The assignment of an NAIC designation is not a recommendation to purchase the ETF and is not intended to convey approval or endorsement of the ETF Sponsor or the ETF by the NAIC.

All Vanguard ETF products are subject to risk, including the possible loss of the money you invest. Bond ETFs are subject to interest rate, inflation, and credit risk. Diversification does not ensure a profit or protect against a loss.
