I am maxing my 401k investment to 6% of my salary for Max return.
Can anyone tell which is better Roth IRA or Vanguard?

    I think you're a bit confused. Here's something I posted a while ago:

    "I think a lot of the confusion is coming from the terminology.

    There are two investment vehicles: 401k (max contribution $18.5k) and IRA (max $5.5).

    Each of these come in two flavors: Traditional (using pre-tax funds) and Roth (use post tax).

    For some reason people mistakenly refer to an IRA as a "Roth".

    A Backdoor Roth IRA is depositing post-tax funds in a Traditional IRA (because you are over the income limit to deposit in a Roth IRA) and then converting that to a Roth IRA, effectively bypassing the income limit."

    To supplement, Vanguard is a company. They provide access to and manage 401ks and IRAs. In essence you have asked "I am maxing my savings account, which is better between a checking account and Bank of America?"
