Changes at Vanguard

Don't know this impact any of us directly. Maybe we get a new member?



From the attached:

Vanguard Group, the world's largest mutual fund manager, said on Thursday Chief Executive Bill McNabb will step down at the end of the year and be replaced by Chief Investment Officer Tim Buckley, betting on the internal successor to oversee rapid growth.

McNabb, 60, who took the CEO job in 2008, will remain chairman of the Pennsylvania company where he oversaw massive inflows to its low-cost products, including index funds, after steering the company through the financial crisis.

You know what I do.

The announcement said he's staying on the board. I'd guess all parties are happy.

I saw that email and was concerned, at first. But it also said that McNabb took the job in 2008, and I don't recall any earthshaking changes at Vanguard in 2008.

Let's hope the same is true this time.

It said that McNabb is 60. I don't know about the rest of you, but when I was 60 I already had an intense desire to either retire or to lessen my workload by stepping down to a position of lesser responsibility, had that been possible. My guess is that this is the reason why he is stepping down from the CEO position.

LOL.... good one...


This is basically a nothing burger as some would say... I do not see them every getting someone at the top who was not into the philosophy of Vanguard...

I read it and deleted it pretty quickly....

It's really not an issue. "Meet the new boss, same as the old boss". The Who.
