Vanguard’s active fixed income approach
Whether a plan sponsor, a pension fund, a nonprofit, or a consultant, all are seeking that holy grail—consistent outperformance without undue risk. Over the long term, it's not implausible with the right combination of factors, especially in fixed income.
Some firms may tout their size, talent, process, or results, but none can match the unique blend of all that Vanguard brings. We’re one of the most trusted companies in asset management for a reason.
We're also one of the largest, giving us the scale, clout, and ability to deliver cost efficiencies and attract top talent. We’ve been actively managing bond funds for nearly four decades, enhancing our research, talent pool, and risk management strategy, further refining our time-tested, repeatable investment process.
1 Vanguard is investor owned. This means investors own the funds that own Vanguard.

People and process
Our investment process is characterized by deep specialization and constant collaboration.
Vanguard’s dedicated active taxable fixed income team of 90+ professionals—senior leaders, portfolio managers, researchers, traders, and risk specialists—work together to support all relevant products. Unlike at other firms that may have an "A team" or a "B team," all Vanguard bond funds and trusts benefit from our top talent.
