Jack Bogle founded the Vanguard Group in 1975 as a non-profit mutual fund company exclusively owned by its clients with as overall goal to serve the interests of individual investors. Vanguard evolved to become the second largest fund manager in the world today. He wrote many books, including one in which he denounced the excessive greed of too many people (“Enough”). At BETTER FINANCE we believe Mankind needs more people like him, and we salute his memory and legacy as a great champion of citizens as investors and financial users.
- “The motivation of too many of those rushing into finance is more aligned with what they can get from society than what they can give back to it.” – John C Bogle
- “Money management extracts value from the returns earned by our business enterprises, and in the process of maximizing its own commercial benefits, the industry seems to have lost its professional bearings.” – John C Bogle
