Let The Index Lead The Way

The investing enthusiasts known as Bogleheads, who advocate the philosophies of Vanguard founder Jack Bogle, believe in highly diversified, low-cost, and tax-efficient investments. These investing principles suggest if you can’t beat the index, invest in it. That can be easier said than done, because the question becomes: What index and to what degree? While many Bogleheads choose a simple portfolio mix of US stocks and bonds, the next level of diversification could mean gaining exposure to international stocks and gold in an attempt to provide some protection against domestic inflation and dollar devaluation. With allocations to US and international stocks, US bonds and precious metals, this multi-asset motif tries to accomplish just that, while keeping costs in check with a composite expense ratio of about 0.15%.
