Important information: Please remember that the value of investments, and any income from them, can fall as well as rise so you could get back less than you invest. Our service is designed for people who want to make their own investment decisions without personalised advice. If you are unsure of the suitability of any investment for your circumstances, please seek advice. Tax rules can change and benefits depend on circumstances. Where the annual saving is paid as a loyalty bonus, it is paid tax-free in an ISA but may be subject to tax in a Fund & Share Account. Within a SIPP you can normally only access the money from age 55 (57 from 2028).
The Vanguard Group launched its first index fund in 1976 in the US, and investors worldwide now trust it to manage $3.4 trillion worth of their assets across 177 index funds and ETFs in the US and another 150 worldwide*.
Vanguard was founded by John C Bogle, who had a love of sailing ships and named the group after Admiral Horatio Nelson's ship, used in the victory over the French at the Battle of the Nile.
