John Bogle on Corporate Governnance, Financial Reform and Target-date Funds

November 01, 2010
More words of wisdom came from John Bogle, the founder of Vanguard Group. He talked to Morningstar’s Christen Bentz about the issues such as the role of mutual fund in corporate governance, financial reform, and target-date funds:

1. Bogle: Index Funds the Great Hope for Corporate Governance

2. Bogle: Financial Reform Better Than Nothing

Vanguard founder Jack Bogle thinks that although financial reform was a step in the right direction too many questions were left unanswered.



3. Bogle: Unclear if Target-Date Funds Have Lived Up to Promise
