investing for moderate growth
« on: July 16, 2019, 01:49:34 PM »
I have $13,000 that I plan to invest with Vanguard. I am 64 years old and work part-time and don't anticipate retiring before 66 and will probably continue working beyond that age. My stache is $800,000 and my social security payment will be about $2,000 a month once I start taking it. I'm living on $40K a year currently.

Funds that have been recommended to me are: VSMGX (Vanguard Lifestrategy Moderate Growth Fund) and VTSAX (Vanguard Total Stock Market Index Fund Admiral Shares).

I'd like to go with something that's not so conservative. Which fund (or what other fund) would be good?
