Title: Favorite conservative fund?
Post by: FIence! on July 14, 2020, 11:11:52 AM
As I finish off my taxes today, I'm kicking myself for not putting more into retirement this year. Since I have 24 hours left before the filing deadline, I was thinking about putting some money into a fairly conservative fund.

Funds with a 10k min would be ok, that's probably about what I would be putting in. I am planning to start my ladder soon-ish, so want something that won't absolutely tank if there's a market crash in that time, and in exchange I'm OK with low growth. My main goal is the tax savings now and keeping a little ahead of inflation.

What are your favorite recession-safe (not recession proof, as I know even a conservative fund will experience loss) funds available through Vanguard?
