11 Best Vanguard Index Funds to Buy for Low-Cost Quality

Vanguard index funds are among the market’s greatest champions of low-cost investing.

The company is a pioneer, launching the first index fund – the Vanguard 500 Index Fund (VFIAX), which provided inexpensive access to the Standard & Poor’s 500-stock index – more than four decades ago.

Since then, Vanguard has introduced a slew of low-cost index mutual funds and exchange-traded funds (ETFs) that have saved investors hundreds of billions of dollars in fees throughout the years.

They’ll also provide faithful exposure to asset classes and investing strategies to profit from for years to come. Take a look.
