Five ETF Basic Asset Class Portfolio
There are specific asset classes that need to be part of every portfolio. Here is a list of the basic group I include in every portfolio. While the ETFs shown below serve as examples, every portfolio will eventually include these five asset classes.
- U.S. Equities – VTI
- Domestic Bonds – BND or AGG
- Developed International Markets – VEU or EFA
- Emerging Markets – VWO or EEM
- Domestic REITs – VNQ or ICF
Are these five asset classes sufficient to build a well-diversified portfolio? To answer the question, we run a Quantext Portfolio Planner (QPP) analysis to gain clues.
