Sean Hagerty

Managing Director for Vanguard Europe


I was born and raised in an industrial town in Western Pennsylvania, USA, where I attended Catholic schools. My family is of Irish and English decent.

I am a passionate advocate for equal access to quality education for all, especially for children growing up in poverty or facing adverse childhood experiences. I studied Accounting at St. Bonaventure University and worked at Peat, Marwick, Mitchell & Co. and PNC Bank before joining Vanguard in 1997. At Vanguard, I’ve held various jobs as diverse as Marketing, Corporate Strategy, and Institutional Asset Management.  

Prior to my current role as the Managing Director for Vanguard Europe in London (since 2016), I led the Portfolio Review Department, responsible for developing and overseeing all of Vanguard’s mutual funds and ETFs, assessing fund performance and portfolio consistency, and monitoring Vanguard’s external advisors.

I live in London with my wife and have three adult children that live in the United States.
