    ‘Bond king’ Bill Gross never lost his investing crown

    Bill Gross’ track record as a bond fund manager has been roundly — and unfairly — criticized. Gross earlier this week announced his retirement from mutual-fund management.

    To Index Bonds or Not?

    Friday's column noted that, for the first time ever,  Vanguard Total Bond Market Index  VBMFX lags its actively managed rivals over the long term.

As suggested by the performance discrepancy, Total Bond Market is an unusual index fund, in that it differs meaningfully from its active competitors.

    Intermediate-Term Bond Managers Pull Ahead

    How Our Vanguard Retirement Saver Portfolios Have Performed

    As with the other portfolios, I used Morningstar's Lifetime Allocation Indexes to guide the asset-class exposures for these Vanguard portfolios.

    Retirement 'Bucket' Portfolios for Vanguard Investors

    Because of their ultralow costs and broad diversification, various Vanguard funds featured heavily in my previous model bucket portfolios, both the original series as well as the ETF and tax-efficient series that came later. In part, that's because these portfolios are designed for tax-deferred accounts, so managing for tax efficiency--a big benefit of equity index funds and ETFs--is not valuable here.
