Board of directors
As an investor, you deserve to know that your assets are managed carefully with your best interests in mind. That's why it's important to know who ultimately controls how your money is managed.
Our board of directors is in place to ensure that your mutual funds are organized, operated, and managed in the interest of their shareholders. These ten directors serve not only on Vanguard's board but also as trustees of each Vanguard fund. Nine are independent directors, meaning that they have no affiliation with Vanguard or the funds apart from any investments they may choose to make as private individuals. The tenth director is Vanguard's chief executive officer, Bill McNabb, who is also chairman of the board.
The board members help select investment advisors for the funds; monitor fund operations, performance, and costs; review contracts; and elect Vanguard's officers. They are a very distinguished group, bringing a wide range of experience and perspectives to Vanguard's governance, as you can see below.
