Jack Bogle Passes Away at 89

Jack Bogle, 89, founder of The Vanguard Group and a leading proponent of low-cost investing, died today, of cancer.

Bogle Passes

January 2019 will be remembered among many Vanguard investors as the month that Jack Bogle, Vanguard’s founder and a man who changed investing for the better for millions of individuals, died at 89. I first met Jack in the late 1980s, and we had a long and complicated relationship right up until his passing. He will be sorely missed. In your February issue, we discuss why he stood head-and-shoulders above so many other, lesser financial “titans.”

Also in this month’s issue, we talk about how momentum can be a powerful force in the stock markets. But sometimes, it backfires. How does this relate to a Hot Hands Fund? You will find out. And if you are unfamiliar with what our Hot Hands Fund strategy is all about, don’t worry—we’ve got you covered in this month’s issue.

In addition, we dive into why Vanguard is putting an end to a certain strategy that helped make a renowned value investor and his asset management famous. Also, don’t miss out on why you should say goodbye to a fund that is retiring after 50 years.

For the full scoop, check out your February issue—available now.
