Founded by John C. Bogle in 1975, The Vanguard Group is renowned for pioneering the low-cost index fund. Because it is owned by its own funds, and therefore the clients themselves, Vanguard is positioned to be better oriented toward shareholder interests, a unique situation among fund companies. The Vanguard ETFs range from international markets to broad domestic indices to highly targeted sectors. Their current offerings include total world stock, pacific, all-world ex-US, REIT, and more.
