As the portfolio gets closer to $100k, I am trying to weight it more heavily towards ETFs to de-risk. Eventually I’d like the portfolio to be around 40% ETFs, 40% companies, 10% crypto, 10% cash.

I wrote recently on the blog that having everything solely in the S&P 500 wasn’t ideal in my opinion, and a diversified ETF portfolio is better.

The current ETFs I am building positions in are:



ASX:IVV – S&P 500 ETF in AUD

VOO – S&P 500 ETF in USD

VWO – Emerging Markets ETF

This gives a good mix of dividends, growth, and geographic diversity. You’ll notice the @moneybren portfolio already has a few China ETFs as well, but I’m not adding to those.
