Welcome to the Bogleheads® wiki, a collaborative enterprise by members of the Bogleheads Community. The Bogleheads' approach to investing begins with an investor deciding on percentage allocations to various asset classes, such as U.S. stocks, international stocks, U.S. bonds, and cash. The desired allocations are then implemented using low-cost vehicles which are true to the targeted asset classes. Tax costs are carefully considered, influencing decisions as to what investments to place in taxable versus tax-advantaged accounts. Bogleheads emphasize regular saving, broad diversification, and sticking to one's investment plan regardless of market conditions. Information relevant to the group's core beliefs is available in the Bogleheads' investment philosophy.

The wiki is a valuable reference resource for investors. Anyone can read the wiki. If you would like to edit it, please send a private message requesting access, and you will quickly be made an editor. Information on editing the wiki is available on the left sidebar of every wiki page. Suggestions are welcome by posting in Suggestions for the Wiki.

If you see content in need of improvement, or a new page that should be written, please become an editor so that you can contribute to the site. In particular, if you find yourself writing a reply to a forum question that you've seen before, please instead create a wiki page with the answer, and reply on the forum with a link and a quote of your text. That way, the Bogleheads Community both preserves our knowledge base and makes it more accessible, particularly to those using search engines.
