Having a portfolio of seven Vanguard ETFs gives investors the ability to adjust risk level easier than a portfolio of fewer Vanguard ETFs. Another benefit of a seven ETF portfolio is its diversification. The mixture of mid and small cap U.S. stocks are available, as well as access to emerging markets. With a smaller portfolio, some of these options are limited, giving less opportunity to fine-tune the level of risk being endured.
