John Bogle - Biography

John Clifton "Jack" Bogle, who preached buy and hold investing, was considered one of the world’s greatest investors. His index mutual fund enabled investors to achieve high returns but at lower costs than for actively managed funds.
He was the founder and chief executive of The Vanguard Group, and is credited with creating the first index fund. An avid investor and money manager himself, he preached investment over speculation, long term patience over short term action and reducing broker fees as much as possible. The ideal investment vehicle for Bogle was a low cost index fund held over a period of a lifetime with the reinvestment of dividends and dollar cost averaging.

Bogle married Eve Sherrerd on September 22, 1956 and had six children: Barbara, Jean, John Clifton, Nancy, Sandra, and Andrew. They resided in Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania. At age 31, Bogle suffered from his first of several heart attacks, and at age 38, he was diagnosed with the rare heart disease arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia. He received a heart transplant in 1996 at age 66.
Bogle died on January 16, 2019, at his home in Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania.
