About The Independent Adviser for Vanguard Investors

Published since January 1991, The Independent Adviser for Vanguard Investors provides independent investment advice on the Vanguard family of mutual funds. As it has no affiliation whatsoever with Vanguard, the service gives members an unbiased, in-depth perspective on all Vanguard funds available to retail investors, including domestic and international equity funds, bond funds, money markets, variable annuities and ETFs.

Editor Dan Wiener, a former reporter on the mutual fund industry, is a long-time advocate of Vanguard investors, dedicated to helping them achieve higher returns with less risk and meet their personal financial objectives with confidence. With the bulk of his wealth in the Vanguard funds he recommends, he puts his money where his mouth is–and doesn't hesitate to call Vanguard out when it isn't serving the best interests of investors.

Subscribers receive a 12- to 16-page monthly newsletter, weekly email updates, and full access to AdviserOnline.com and its members-only forum, plus automatic membership in the Fund Family Shareholder Association, an independent investor association providing objective financial information on mutual funds and protecting the interests of mutual fund investors, at no additional charge.

Each monthly newsletter features recent and upcoming changes at Vanguard; proprietary risk and return analysis; a Performance Review of all Vanguard's funds complete with Buy, Sell and Hold ratings; and four Model Portfolios designed to help aggressive, conservative, index and income investors build a portfolio that fits their goals.

In addition, The Independent Adviser for Vanguard Investors provides access to exclusive fund manager interviews, fund distribution information, market updates, tax efficiency advice and many other tools to make investing easier and more profitable for you.

For subscribers interested in the most comprehensive analysis available, Dan also edits the annual Independent Guide to the Vanguard Funds, which includes complete profiles of every Vanguard fund he covers and all of the managers and management firms in charge of their portfolios, plus the history of Vanguard, major news of the past 10 years, and a wealth of fund statistics including proprietary performance and risk metrics.
