When #JackBogle first pitched the index fund, the idea was like a unicorn. Can you guess the month, year, and magazine that inspired him to write his thesis, which started an #InvestingRevolution? Bonus points for naming the specific article! http://vgi.vg/2bYacWL

Believe it or not, indexing wasn’t very popular when the idea was introduced in 1976! http://vgi.vg/2bIM11B

Story
Tagline
"Our mission is to take a stand for all investors, to treat them fairly, and to give them the best chance for investment success." -Vanguard CEO Bill McNabb
Introduction
Obtain prospectus http://vgi.vg/w9WyRz 

Company Overview
Most investment firms are either publicly traded or privately owned. Vanguard is different: We're client-owned. Our clients own the Vanguard member mutual funds, and those funds own Vanguard. Vanguard provides to the funds all of their corporate management, administrative, and distribution services at cost, which enables the funds and their shareholders to keep the money that would otherwise be paid to the corporate owners of a typical mutual fund company. 

Since our founding in 1975, helping our investors achieve their goals is literally 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 possible—with only your needs in mind.

Our investment philosophy is also directly related to our ownership structure. We advocate basic investment principles, such as balance and diversification and taking a long-term perspective, because we’ve found those elements are enduring.

*Diversification does not ensure a profit or protect against a loss in a declining market.
