John C. Bogle will be on campus, Tuesday April 17th, 2012 to receive the "Pioneer in Financial Services" award presented by the Cotsakos College of Business and William Paterson University.
Mr. Bogle is known as "the father of indexed mutual funds", and he is the founder and former CEO of Vanguard, the largest mutual fund company in the U.S. with over $1.3 trillion in assets. Mr. Bogle's determination to offer mutual funds at the lowest possible cost to consumers has made him a hero amongst household investors, and a thorn in the side of those who prefer to extract rents and capitalize on information asymmetries that exist in the marketplace.
He will be speaking in the Valley Road auditorium from 11-12:15.
We are very proud and excited to have Mr. Bogle accept this award, and influence our students who are the next generation of business leaders in the financial services industry and the global marketplace.
