Vanguard’s Rich Powers discusses how the underlying index for the Vanguard ESG U.S. Corporate Bond ETF (VCEB) combines MSCI’s rigorous ESG research with exposure to the investment-grade corporate bond space, allowing investors to align their investments with their values while diversifying their portfolio.


Vanguard’s investors are its owners. In 1975, John C. Bogle founded a firm based on a simple but revolutionary idea: investor ownership. Vanguard is owned by the funds that, in turn, are owned by its investors. This unique structure clearly aligns the company’s interests with those of its investor-owners—with no conflicting loyalties. Vanguard offers a broad range of investments, an array of advice and retirement services, and practical insights to individuals, institutions, and financial professionals. Vanguard has emerged as one of the world's most respected investment management companies by adhering to a simple mission: to take a stand for all investors, to treat them fairly, and to give them the best chance for investment success.
