80% equities + 20% bonds. They rebalance this to maintain 80/20 regularly. MER is 25 basis points, so cheap. His concern is that it's weighted to momentum and growth stocks--how long will these move? Also, competitors like iShares have come out with similar ETFs.

COMMENT
For a self-employed investor, if I keep buying this over and over, should I be concerned about the NAV? Asset allocation is definitely a strategy. VGRO is favouring growth in an aggressive asset mix. If you're a growth investor for the next five years, this is fine. Otherwise, look at XIU; a short-term bond portfolio; a universal bond portfolio; and a Spyder to cover the S&P 500.

COMMENT
Clarifications: growth ETF because of the asset allocation (80% equities / 20% Fixed Income) not because it is invested in Growth oriented companies. Paying a fairly inexpensive MER. One stop shop kind of product

This is 80/20 stocks to bonds. We have to remember that stock volatility in stocks is much greater than bonds. If the stock market falls the ETF will follow the market very closely -- .96 correlation or higher – he feels. For a long term investment this may be fine. He would wait.

VGRO-T vs. VBAL-T vs. VCNS-T.  Would the three be enough for a retirement portfolio?  VGRO-T is 80% equity, 20% bonds; VBAL-T is 60% equity, 40% bonds; and VCNS-T is 40% equity, 60% bonds.  Don't hold them together.  They hold the same thing at different proportions and equate to VBAL-T if all held equally.  Move between them as market conditions dictate.

COMMENT

VGRO-T vs. VBAL-T vs. VCNS-T.  They are the total solution portfolios.  If you hold all of them your blended portfolio is the same as VBAL-T, (60/40).  VCNS-T gives you much more protection from the equity markets.  VGRO-T is for when you don't need protection.

Passively held balanced portfolio. This one is 80% equities, 20% fixed income which is pretty aggressive. Not a bad thing to have as a core part. But VBAL-T is better at this point in the cycle, with 60% equities, 40% fixed income.

For an 18-year old in a TFSA? Absolutely, really likes it. About 70% equities, 30% fixed income. US/Canada, emerging/developed markets. Cheap, and automatically rebalances every 6 months. Mini-portfolio, good for small accounts. Replaces robo-advisers. Very well diversified.

This is highly linked to tech companies like Alphabet, Google, etc. He likes the diversification overall, but cautions it is focused on growth companies that he expects could retrace as the cycle peaks.  Yield 1%.

He likes the Vanguard asset allocation ETFs, including this one. They're cheap, with a 0.23% MER. They're great for smaller accounts and they automatically rebalance, so they are good competition for robo-advisors.

This holds 80% equities and 20% fixed income.  This is appropriate for younger investors with a long term investment horizon.  It is a balanced portfolio ETF of ETFs offered at a low cost.

Was one of his top picks a couple of shows before. Bonds are important for safety and makes 20% of this ETF. For a multi-asset class vehicle that rebalances this is a great instrument and for 23 basis points, it is a great deal.

One stop shopping. A basket of other ETFs. 20% bonds on this one. Very good product for small accounts. Just bought it, hasn’t settled yet.
