I like Vanguard investment funds for long term individual investors.
Especially investors who follow a passive management style.
As I am not directly or indirectly compensated in any way by Vanguard I recommend them based solely on their merits.
That is not to say that other funds are poorer choices. I recommend a wide variety depending on a client’s investment objectives, desires, and available offering in their home jurisdiction. I believe in a “best of breed” approach for clients, not what is best for my revenue. And within the “best of breed” options, Vanguard funds pop up with regularity.
Why is this so? (more…)
