Canadian expat - portfolio allocation
« on: January 23, 2018, 08:28:51 PM »
We are Canadian expats, and are planning to retire in Canada in a few years; however, once kids are older (15+ years) we may move to a cheaper warm country.

We have an expat account with the following allocation, 60% of the money is in USD and the rest in CAD. Do you think we should reduce the Canadian exposure?.

10%. ishares CORP (International Bonds, USD)
50%. VWRD. (50% USD, 50% international, USD)
30% VCN. (Canadian stocks, CAD)
10% VAB (Canadian bonds, CAD)
