Vanguard serves as investment manager for the Pennsylvania 529 Investment Plan.
Three words—trust, value, and commitment—describe why millions of investors have made Vanguard their financial home since its founding more than 30 years ago. Vanguard is well known for its dedication to seeking outstanding performance, superior service, and low costs. Vanguard is also client-owned, so it makes every decision with only its shareholders' investment needs in mind. Because Vanguard is committed to keeping costs at the lowest reasonable levels, more of your investment returns can keep working for you.
In 1976, Vanguard introduced the first index mutual fund for individual investors. These broadly diversified, low-cost investments seek to track the performance of market indexes—not beat them—by holding all or a representative sample of the securities in their target indexes. Today, Vanguard is a recognized leader in offering index funds.
