I know there are no bonds selected but my thinking is I want to be aggressive for 3 years until Im 50. Thoughts?
I have 410k(ish) in my account.
30% (No Ticker but similar to VFFSX) Vanguard Institutional 500 Index Trust
30% (VFWPX) Vanguard FTSE All-World ex-US Index Fund
30% (VIEIX) Vanguard Extended Market Index Fund (mid & small cap)
10% (VSIIX) Vanguard Small-Cap Value Index Fund (Redundant?)
The extended market fund is basically VTSAX minus what’s in the 500 fund. If you want to mimic a US total market fund with what you have available, you’ll buy the 500 trust and the extended market fund in roughly a 4:1 ratio. The small-cap value fund is extra and you can skip it if you’re going with this approach.
If you want to do 70/30 US/international, not weighted toward small caps, skipping bonds for now, you could do 56% 500 trust, 14% extended market, 30% all-world ex-US.
