Strong leadership supports Vanguard Wellesley's Morningstar Analyst Rating of Gold. That hasn't changed since the early-2017 promotion of credit specialists Mike Stack and Loren Moran to comanagers alongside veteran lead bond manager John Keogh. Stack has 35 years of industry experience and Moran about 15. While Keogh has no imminent plans to retire, either Stack or Moran are well-equipped to take over Keogh's role of top-down risk assessment and yield-curve positioning when he steps down.
