Stability and experience
Vanguard Investments Singapore Pte. Ltd. has been serving investors since 2003. Our parent company, The Vanguard Group, Inc., established the world's first index mutual fund for individual investors in 1976 and has been a leader in low-cost index investing ever since. The Vanguard Group also launched the first funds based on bond and international indices, and over the last decade has extended its index management expertise to exchange-traded funds.
In Singapore, Vanguard can leverage the scale, experience and resources of our established global business. Vanguard's ownership structure means that investors in Asia don't have to worry that we'll be acquired. The company they invest with today will continue to serve them in the future.
Investors can't control the markets, but they can control the costs of investing. Providing low-cost investments isn't a pricing strategy for us. It's how we do business.
We can keep costs low because of our unique ownership structure in the United States, which allows us to return profits to investors through lower costs. Our parent company, The Vanguard Group, Inc., is owned by its member funds. Those funds, in turn, are owned by their shareholders. Since we don't serve public owners or a group of individuals, profit can be returned to fund shareholders through low expense ratios.
Vanguard's scale also helps to keep costs low. As our assets under management increase, we can reduce expense ratios for the investors in our funds globally.
The ownership structure of our parent company, The Vanguard Group, aligns our interests with those of our clients. Since Vanguard is not publicly traded, we can extend the benefits of that structure to our clients in Singapore.
From rigorous risk management to transparent pricing to plain talk communications, we put our clients' interests first.
Everything we do at Vanguard is designed to give our clients the best chance for investment success.ad-070517
