I have been planning to change my portfolio from VWRL+ SMI/SMIM ETF to VTI+VEA+VWO and I started buying VTI in 2019.
Looking at the graphs of VEA and VWO, it looks like they haven’t gone anywhere since 2008.
In this bear market VTI didn’t drop more than VEA and VWO (until now) , actually even less than VWO.
Currently 55% of what I have invested on IB is in VTI, 30% is in VWRL and 15% is in Swiss Mid Cap.
US is around 70% of the total…
I know that past performance is not indicative of future results, that in previous decades US didn’t always perform better, that it’s not a good idea to concentrate everything in US.
On the other hand VEA and VWO look like slowing down the performance of a portfolio without adding much and being still corrlated to VTI.
What do you guys think? Am I being unreasonable? Any suggestion to shift my point of view?
