Titans: the Idea that Saved a Trillion Dollars


The first episode of Titans had to be about the person who saved the most for investors, a true titan of finance who sadly passed away in January 2019 as I was working on this video: John C. (“Jack”) Bogle. He is the inventor of the index fund, and in my mind should be considered the father of indexed investing which has become a trillion-dollar industry.

This is a first of a 3-part series about Bogle and Vanguard.
