Remembering John C. Bogle

The Bogle Archive

John C. (Jack) Bogle (1929 - 2019) was founder of the Vanguard Group and creator of the world's first retail index mutual fund. Over the years, he was named one of “the world’s 100 most powerful and influential people” by Time magazine, one of the investment industry's four "Giants of the 20th Century" by Fortune magazine and Forbes magazine said Bogle “has done more good for investors than any other financier of the past century.” He spent his career as a tireless advocate for the average investor. 

In his 2008 book, ‘Enough’, Bogle described what drove him to challenge the investment community: “Because what I’m battling for — building our nation’s financial system anew, in order to give our citizen/investors a fair shake — is right,” he wrote.

John Bogle was considered the “conscience of the industry”. He focused intense conviction, clarity, and commitment to his views and ideals on his quest to transform the financial industry for the good of the everyday investor. He was a prolific author of numerous books, journal articles and op-eds, delivered many speeches, and sat for a multitude of interviews, all touching upon topics about which he cared most deeply: Vanguard, indexing, corporate governance, and a fiduciary society.
