Podcast Episode 12: Vanguard sets its sights on Europe

Posted by Robin Powell on March 16, 2017

Everyone knows by now how phenomenally successful Vanguard has been in the US in the last few years. But it’s not doing badly elsewhere in the world either.

For the latest TEBI Podcast, I’ve been interviewing Dr Peter Westaway, Chief Economist and Head of Investment Strategy for Vanguard Europe.

Among the questions I ask him are these:

Is tit true that markets are more “uncertain” now than they normally are?

Has Quantitative Easing made it harder for active managers to outperform?

How much attention should investors give to interest rate decisions?

What progress is Vanguard making in Europe, and where does its priorities lie?
