Investors choose active management to seek greater returns than the broader market or to align with their individual goals.

We believe there are three critical ingredients that make market outperformance possible: top talent, low cost, and patience. All three play a role in our active strategies.



We're best known for our index funds, but did you know we've been managing active strategies since our founding in 1975?

In fact, Vanguard is one of the world's largest providers of active management, with more than AUD $2 trillion1 of actively managed assets across internal and external management.
