Dan Wiener is editor of The Independent Adviser for Vanguard Investors, a monthly newsletter that keeps abreast of recent developments at Vanguard, and the annual FFSA Independent Guide to the Vanguard Funds.
Dan loves Vanguard, but he knows most Vanguard investors are being left out of the best funds. So, to right the wrongs, he founded Fund Family Shareholders Association (FFSA) in 1991. FFSA is entirely independent of The Vanguard Group, Inc. Dan's only loyalty is to his readers.
Through his newsletter and guide book, Dan helps tens of thousands of Vanguard investors choose wisely among more than 100 Vanguard mutual funds.
At The Independent Adviser for Vanguard Investors, which is a five-time winner of the Newsletter Publishers Foundation's Editorial Excellence Award, Dan heads the largest independent research operation in the world dedicated to helping Vanguard investors maximize returns and reduce risks. He achieves this by probing, examining and challenging Vanguard, and subscribers are rewarded for his persistence.
Dan's two decades of work has made many Vanguard investors richer than expected -- much richer, in fact. The evidence shows that Dan's advice makes his readers 119% richer than the average Vanguard investor who invests with Vanguard on his own. This is not a snapshot of selected "good" years. Dan beats the market, Vanguard and his subscribers' own profit expectations year-in and year-out. It's no wonder Dan is dubbed the "Vanguard Gumshoe" by Forbes Magazine and is widely recognized as America's leading Vanguard expert. Dan also publishes a free weekly newsletter, Fund Focus Weekly, every Friday.Dan is also founder and chairman of the Fund Family Shareholder Association and chairman and CEO of Adviser Investment Management, Inc., an investment advisory firm. He previously spent almost a decade writing about personal finance for US News & World Report and Fortune magazines. He has also written for The New York Times and other national publications.
