To Veterans and Principals,
I’m attaching a copy of my speech to the NMS Investment Management Forum, presented to a packed house of some 400 endowment fund and pension fund officers in Washington, D.C., last Monday, September 12.
It includes a discussion of endowment fund investment policy; a comparison of endowment fund returns with the model index fund portfolio (50 percent stocks, 50 percent bonds) that I recommended 15 years ago in an essay for the Common Fund; and a forecast of future stock and bond returns. It also includes commentary about the risks involved in the greatly expanded use of alternative investments, now the dominant portion of endowment portfolios.
If these subjects interest you, I think you’ll enjoy the talk.
Note 1: On Monday September 19, I’ll be doing a full hour—from 1PM to 2PM—on CNBC’s “Power Lunch,” with Tyler Mathisen. We’ll be talking about current issues, including Vanguard’s growth and industry position, index funds, and today’s financial markets.
Note 2: The endowment fund speech, along with most of my other speeches, interviews, etc. have all been posted on my Bogle eblog—www.johncbogle.com.

Memo to: Veterans and Principals
I’m attaching a copy of a Wall Street Journal interview with me by Jason Zweig that appeared in the WSJ last Saturday, September 10. I think you’ll enjoy the perspective.
The interview arose from a request by the WSJ for a taped conversation with Jason Zweig for wsj.com. That interview took place last Wednesday and began to run over the weekend on the web.
I’m told it got the second highest number of “hits” (or whatever the right formulation is) in the WSJ website over the weekend. The first tape ran on Saturday and you might enjoy that too (warning: it runs about 20 minutes). If you have time, you might want to give it a glance.
Mr. Bogle was interviewed as part of the “Faith and Ethics in the Executive Suite” series on May 27, 2011.
Mr. Bogle was recently interviewed on the Fox Business program Bulls and Bears.
September 6, 2011
To Veterans and Principals:
It seemed only appropriate to celebrate (as it were) the 35th anniversary of the index fund, the first major innovation of the then-tiny and young Vanguard Group. So last week, I wrote an essay on the creation of the fund and its initial public offering, which took place on August 31, 1976.
I sent the essay to the op-ed editors of The Wall Street Journal, hoping they could help me get it placed in the “Review” section, which runs on Saturdays. But they wanted to publish a significantly shortened version on “their” page, so I (reluctantly) did the merciless editing required.
I’m attaching the the piece as it appeared in the Journal on September 3, but also the full essay as originally penned. I like my title better (of course!); and I loved the flourish of my final sentence, sadly absent from the published version.
Can you even imagine Vanguard without index funds?
An op-ed written by Mr. Bogle was published in the September 3, 2011 edition of the Wall Street Journal. The article can be found here.
