Morningstar's Tribute to Jack Bogle

There has never been anyone who has given more to investors and taken less in return than Jack Bogle.

Kunal Kapoor: I remember Jack for many, many reasons, but most of all for his optimism and the fact that he really believed in helping the small investor and ensuring that that investor could have that great outcome that he or she was looking for.

Christine Benz: You could obviously fill books about Mr. Bogle's contributions to the financial services industry and to individual investors. I consider it one of the great privileges of my career that I got to meet Mr. Bogle through our annual Bogleheads Conference conversations. We would do video interviews. And I'll also say that as a young analyst reading Mr. Bogle, getting to know his philosophy was enormously clarifying to me as a young analyst. It helped shape the types of products that I would recommend, and also helped shape my career path. He was pro low-cost products of course, but he was also against so much of the complicated gobbledygook that Wall Street puts out. Hearing his philosophy was an incredible gift.
