Vanguard Funds

An Account Owner may select a START Saving Program investment option that offers Variable Earnings. Each of these investment options invests its assets in one or more mutual funds managed by The Vanguard Group. The particular Vanguard fund or funds in which an investment option invests are selected by the Louisiana State Treasurer and may change over time. As an Account Owner, you will own an interest in securities issued by the START Saving Program, but you will not own shares of the underlying Vanguard funds.
