Vanguard’s active funds aim to provide stability, experience and a focus on long-term, low-cost investing.
This was true when we launched in 1975 with 11 active funds. And it remains true today with more than £638 billion in active funds under management globally*. These attributes have played a consistent role in our long history of active investing and are evident in our new UK funds. The funds are a careful blend of the best-available external and internal investment managers – all at a low cost.

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.
Don't let high fees destroy fund performance
Accept that there will be periods of underperformance
Can active management succeed?
It's not easy to beat the market. But investors who pay attention to three key points – cost, patience, and talent – have the best chance of success.
Our enduring approach to selecting active managers
We believe in searching the globe to find the best fund managers. We think our CEO-led selection, oversight and retention process is set to the highest standard.
