During his tenure, the firm has expanded its client base to more than 50 million while assets under management grew by 80% to US$9 trillion.

“Thirty-three years ago, I was lucky to join a company that believed in giving investors a fair shake as they saved for retirement, for their kids’ college education, or for their dream home,” said Buckley.

“In my seventh year as CEO, we have scaled our mission to more than 50 million investors, and our team is just getting started. I have been passionate about developing the next generation of leaders, and I look forward to those leaders elevating Vanguard to new heights,” he added.
