Vanguard is one of the more old-school online brokers in the industry, and they generally cater to the long-term investor rather than the active investor. Still, Vanguard made a big step this week by launching free mobile apps. The Vanguard apps are available for iPhone, iPad, and Android devices. These apps are all a free download, so Vanguard clients will now be able to access their accounts on the go.

What kind of features do these new mobile apps from Vanguard provide?

  • Invest checks into an eligible account with just the camera on your mobile device
  • Research Vanguard products and assess the market trends index
  • Visualize your asset mix, balance trend, and investment returns with informative charts and graphs
  • Simply tap and scroll to access your account balances, track personal performance, and transact on your account
  • Review details about your personal accounts as well as your employer-sponsored plans

Vanguard’s new mobile apps will help even long-term investors stay on top of their portfolio no matter where they are. The company is really featuring its mobile check investment. For FAQs on how mobile check investments with Vanguard work click here.
