The Vanguard Group expanded its line of financial services recently with term life insurance and private equity offerings offered only to its clientele as part of its strategy to offer one-stop shopping for financial services.

The Vanguard Term Insurance Program provides clients a choice of 10- or 20-year level-premium term life insurance with coverage amounts from $100,000 to $10 million. The firm sells direct to consumers and claims this allows it to provide very competitive pricing. Recommended by many experts for its simplicity and cost effectiveness, term insurance is simple coverage for a set period wiithout savings or other wrinkles. Vanguard also offers variable annuity life insurance.

"Expansion of our insurance services reflects our continued commitment to offer our clients a broad array of very high-value financial services," said John J.

Such investments could include equity and fixed income deals such as venture capital investment into new firms, leveraged buyouts of mature firms, and mezzanine debt financing of middle-stage firms.
