Welcome to Vanguard 101! This course was built to help new investors get started on Vanguard.com by following a simple, step-by-step guide. In my personal opinion, Vanguard is the best option for new investors looking to grow their wealth. However, the platform can be quite difficult to navigate with no prior experience.

If you’d like to start investing with Vanguard but have no idea where to start, this course is perfect for you. The best part is that it’s absolutely free! I believe that basic investing knowledge should be available for everyone. Once you understand the basics, investing is quite simple if you’d like it to be. There is absolutely no need to pay outlandish sums of money for a financial advisor, investing courses, or management fees. Follow this course and you’ll be well on your way to becoming a successful investor.
