Ownership structure

Vanguard's unique mutual structure aligns our interests with those of our investors and drives the culture, philosophy and policies throughout the Vanguard organisation worldwide. The Vanguard Group is owned by Vanguard's US-domiciled funds and exchange-traded funds, which in turn are owned by their investors. This allows us to return profits to investors through lower costs, rather than paying dividends to shareholders. We extend these benefits to our clients around the world. As a result, European investors benefit from Vanguard's stability and experience, low costs and client focus.
