I’m considering complementing my portfolio with a few ETFs.
My goal is for growth and some dividends from big names. I am not close to retirement.
I already hold stocks in individual companies such as BP, Cisco, GSK, IBM, Pepsi etc. Mostly US holdings but I have gone for what I have heard of and understand.
My thinking now is to put some money into one or several ETFs, to increase my exposure to the things which I don’t necessarily understand or have the time to follow in any level of useful detail.
So far I have the below as a basic idea, if I were to put in extra cash for the ETF side of things it would be divided as follows…
35% in Emerging markets (VFEM dist or VFEG acc)
30% in All world high yield (VHYL)
35% in S&P500 (VUSA) accumulating or distributing? Or possibly HDLG.
I know there will be some overlap with my individual holdings, but could I get some opinions?
