John “Jack” Bogle (May 8, 1929 – January 16, 2019) was a philanthropist, and investor, an author, but most notably, he was the visionary founder of The Vanguard Group. In 1976 he created the first index mutual fund available to the public, and that very action revolutionized the way that millions of people invest their money. The low-cost index fund is especially powerful for Middletons, and we owe so much to Jack.
Rest in peace, Mr. Bogle.
