What is Vanguard and how does it work?
Vanguard is owned by the Vanguard funds, which in turn are owned by its shareholders. This unique ownership structure allows us to keep costs as low as possible. You keep more of your returns, which helps you earn more over the long term.
What are Vanguard's index funds?
Index funds are a type of mutual fund with a portfolio created to match the performance of the indexes they track such as the S&P 500. Index funds provide broad market exposure (reducing risk) while keeping fees low for investors.

Cada nuevo año trae consigo una cabalgata de previsiones económicas y de mercado. Muchos de los emisores se atreven a centrarse en un único año natural. Pretenden decir a los inversores dónde, por ejemplo, se situará el índice S&P 500 al cierre de las operaciones el 31 de diciembre.
No quiero impugnar todos los esfuerzos por predecir el futuro financiero. De hecho, me gano la vida pronosticando la rentabilidad de los mercados. En concreto, superviso la investigación sobre previsiones y el funcionamiento del Vanguard Capital Markets Model®, que impulsa la visión sobre las clases de activos que presentamos en nuestras perspectivas económicas y de mercado anuales.
Pero si dedica algún tiempo a considerar las previsiones de mercado -las nuestras o las de cualquier otra persona- debe comprender que existe una relación entre sus horizontes y su precisión. Las previsiones a más largo plazo son más precisas.
Notas: El gráfico refleja un número variable de previsiones, que van desde un mínimo de 11 para 2011 a un máximo de 22 para 2019, seguidas por Bloomberg. Cada una se emitió en diciembre del año anterior. Dado que se hicieron para el nivel de cierre del índice S&P 500, se trataba de estimaciones de precio únicamente, no de rentabilidad total, que incluiría los efectos del pago de dividendos.
Vanguard index funds
Just as in a mutual fund, each share of an ETF represents a full interest in the underlying assets. ETFs and mutual funds also offer professional management, so you don't have to keep track of every security held by the fund. However, ETFs are different in that they can be traded on an exchange during the day at a price determined by the market.
Most ETFs use an indexing approach. They are constructed so that their value is expected to move in line with the indexes they seek to track. For example, a 2% increase or decrease in an index should produce a 2% increase or decrease in an ETF that tracks that index (before fees and expenses).
How to invest in vanguard from colombia
To say Vanguard is to talk about index funds, in the same way that we associate Windows with a computer. This is because this type of passive management fund was born from the hand of John Bogle, founder of Vanguard. It was in 1975 that he launched the first index fund, the Vanguard 500 Index Fund. Since then, this and other vehicles have been widely replicated by investors around the world... and this asset management firm manages more than $500 billion.
Vanguard is one of the largest mutual fund managers, a status it has achieved primarily through its passive management offerings: index funds and exchange-traded funds (ETFs). In fact, it competes head-to-head with BlackRock for first place worldwide in terms of assets under management.
One of Vanguard's hallmarks is its legal personality: unlike other firms in the financial sector, it is not a listed entity. Its investment products belong to its unitholders. Vanguard only manages the capital. In other words, it is owned by the investors. That is why the interests of investors are particularly well represented.
