Australians - What is your ETF allocation?
« on: December 12, 2018, 10:37:03 PM »
I know there is an Australian Investing Thread already but I'm interested in specifically what other people are doing for ETF allocations, people have posted their allocations in that other thread before but it's a huge thread and difficult to trawl through.

To be honest I don't currently have a plan for allocation. I have a bunch of individual shares purchased a long time ago before I got into ETFs, and the ETF portion works out to be approximately:

50% VAS
40% VGS
10% IVE

I've been pondering selling my IVE and/or buying VAE/VGE + VEQ from now on instead. I know there is also VEU which I like the look of, but the US-domiciled part throws me off.

Curious to know what everyone else is doing and maybe gather ideas along the way. :)

I aim for:
50% VAS
50% VGS

But I'm not too precise about it.

I replicate the Vanguard Diversified High Growth Index Fund.  So that's:
36% VAS
26.5% VGS
16% VGAD
6.5% VISM
5% VGE
and 10% cash, instead of bonds, so I have a house deposit at the ready.

100% VAS.

I may add IVV down the line at some point, but for now All Aussie is fine.

In my taxable accounts:  10% VAP, 60% VAS, 30% VTS.

In my super accumulation accounts:  5% VAP, 30% VAS, 65% VTS

Nothing in Europe.  Europe, as it stands, is doomed.

40% VAS (Aussie Stocks)
20% VTS (US Stocks)
20% VEU (World Stocks excluding US)
20% VAF (Aussie Fixed Interest)

35% MVW
10% VTS
7% IEM (emerging markets)
5% VEU
4% VAP
4% DJRE (international property)
17% Sector ETFs (NDQ, IXJ, RBTZ, HACK, IFRA)
Balance in unlisted property trusts and direct aus shares (historical)

I know many will say too many holdings but these are split across super and ex-super and I've been very happy with the performance since establishing the portfolios.
