SAN JOSE, Calif. - May 22, 2014 - PRLog -- An article from Remonsy ETF Network shares the company’s suggestions for creating a Vanguard portfolio with seven ETFs.

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.

The article ( continues by listing the actual Vanguard ETFs being used in the seven ETF portfolio, and the pros and cons of owning it. One of the main cons listed is that high yield U.S. and international bonds aren’t a part of this portfolio mixture.

The seven ETFs listed in this article are:

-Vanguard Total International Bond ETF (BNDX), which tracks the Barclays Global Aggregate ex-USD Float Adjusted RIC Capped Index (USD Hedged).

-Vanguard Total International Stock ETF (VXUS), which also tracks the Barclays U.S. Long Government/Credit Float Adjusted Index.

-Vanguard Short Term Bond ETF (BSV), which tracks the Barclays U.S. 1-5 Year Government/Credit Float Adjusted Index.

-Vanguard S&P 500 ETF (VOO), which tracks the market-cap weighted S&P 500 Index.

-Vanguard Extended Markets ETF (VXF), which tracks the market-cap weighted S&P’s Completion Index.

-Vanguard Long Term Bond ETF (BLV), which tracks the Barclays U.S. Long Government/Credit Float Adjusted Index.

-Vanguard FTSE Emerging Markets ETF (VWO), which tracks the market-cap weighted FTSE Emerging Index.

Additional information on each ETF is given in the article, which can be found at the Remonsy ETF Network:
