Description

I love Vanguard. I think it is great to have a real mutual fund/brokerage company that is owned by the investors and run at cost. Their low costs and passive investing has done wonders for the investment industry. However, things are maybe not the same as they were years ago, as far as Vanguard and its competitors. Fidelity and Schwab are now competing with Vanguard on price by offering their index funds at a lower expense ratio. But is that a reason to move your assets away from Vanguard? I don't think so and I talk about why in this episode. But Vanguard has it's issues and I discuss those in this episode too. I think if they're not a little bit more careful, they may see that they really have serious competition for gathering assets.
