Vanguard’s approach to active
To deliver funds likely to succeed in the long term, we focus on the three most critical factors: Talent, Cost and Patience. Our product review process is led by our CEO, with funds typically comprising a careful blend of a small number of the best available fund managers. We believe our global track record in managing active funds proves the value of our approach.
Carefully select managers with a proven process and demonstrable ability.
