All Century Portfolio
20 percent total U.S stockmarket
5 percent U.S. REITs
5 percent U.S. small cap value
15 percent Pacific equities
15 percent European equities
10 percent U.S. TIPs
10 percent U.S. high yield corpbonds
20 percent U.S. total bondmarket
This is a classic 60/40 portfolio!
To realize it, the following funds are proposed:
(VTI) Vanguard Total Stock Market ETF
(VNQ) Vanguard REIT ETF
(VBR) Vanguard Small-Cap Value ETF
(VPACX) Vanguard Pacific Stock Index Fund Investor Shares
(VEURX) Vanguard European Stock Index Fund Investor Shares
(AGG) iShares Barclays Aggregate Bond Fund
(VWEHX) Vanguard High-Yield Corporate Fund Investor Shares
(TIP) iShares TIPS Bond
Since one size does not fit all. For a younger investor with a longer timeline, a little more equity, such as a microcap fund and an international small-cap value fund can be added to replace the fixed income components.
A more conservative investor might want to have less equity and more bonds; They could combine the Pacific and European holdings into one holding such as iShares MSCI EAFE Index Fund (EFA), and end up with more bonds at the expense of equities.
