To ensure that we retain the confidence of our clients, our Code of Ethics is built on our commitment to doing the right thing. We expect all crew to serve the interests of our clients ahead of personal interests. They are also required to complete a range of training on fraud prevention, anti-money-laundering, and data and privacy protection. Our annual compliance review reinforces regulatory requirements for Vanguard’s registered representatives and investment advisors.
These values are not only the backbone of our commitment to doing the right thing for investors, they are also the tenets that inform how Vanguard shows up as a business leader, a steward in our communities, and a corporate citizen. We have a responsibility to advocate for diversity within our supply chain and in corporate boardrooms. We are also deeply committed to philanthropy that helps strengthen our local communities. And we strive to uphold sustainable business practices that make us good stewards of the environment.
