Our Love/Hate relationship with Vanguard: Brokerage, Index Funds, ETFs

Sharing is caring!


We know that a lot of you have been wanting to invest in Index Funds and have heard about Vanguard. In this video, we discuss the pros and cons of using Vanguard as your broker to trade Index Funds and ETFs when you are a beginner.

Vanguard was the first broker to make Index Funds available for the average investor at a low cost. However, using their website and trading platform may not be the easiest for beginners. If you are looking to buy Vanguard Index Funds as a beginner, using another broker may be easier for you to get started. You don’t have to open a Vanguard Brokerage account if you just want to buy Vanguard Index Funds or ETFs. You can use another broker like Charles Schwab to buy Vanguard Index Funds and ETFs. They have a more user friendly website which is easier to navigate for beginners. Additionally, customer service is not determined by the amount of money you have invested. 

If you interested in investing in the stock market and are just a beginner there is a lot of information out there. We are here to make your journey as a beginner as smooth as possible so you can stay on the road to Financial Independence.
