80% stocks and 20% bonds. Perfect for your child. A great way to start investing. US exposure dominates, but it also offers international exposure.

Invest $200K in only this? Generally not a good strategy, but VGRO is a single-ticket product, meaning it contains a wide, broad mix of equities. It's up only 3.25% this year so far, due to the European exposure. But VGRO is simple and covers the world for you.

It had too much weight in Europe and it was doing nothing. Switched out of it a few weeks ago. It's a good product but it's not working in this market.

Owns a broad array of stocks. A good way to invest in the world, with a growth orientation. Probably not the best for cashflow, but for those wanting broad market exposure, it's great. 41% U.S., 29% Canadian, rest elsewhere.

A good Vanguard ETF for bonds and stocks? VBAL and VGRO. VBAL is more balacned, and VGRO. Now, be more conservative so choose VBAL, but VGRO is better for growth. They both track North American stocks

Be patient. You're not buying this for yield. This is 80% stocks and 20% bonds. This will do very well over time. They just started with these growth ETFs, and VGRO is a good one. It's cheap at 20 basis points. VGRO re-balances regularly, too.

It is not a growth style portfolio. Growth means here that this is 80% equities and 20% FI. Look around. There are some others with lower fees. He is not a fan of putting all in a passive portfolio. It is not a buy and forget type of portfolio.

Good for a passive couch potato strategy? A couch potato strategy is great--a simple asset allocation using ETFs. VGRO is a one-ticket solution, bundling several Vanguard ETFs under a small fee. This holds a 80/20 stock/bond split. Loves this ETF, though more conservative investors may want a 60/40 or 40/60 mix. Compare this to XGRO and ZGRO to find the best fir for you.

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.

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.

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.

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.
