Does a 50/50 split between the following two index funds roughly equal Vanguard Total Stock Market (VTI)? These two funds have the cheapest ER of all offered in my 401k.

BlackRock Russell 1000(R) Index M - Large Cap Funds
BlackRock Russell 2000 Index-M - Small Cap Funds

Thanks.

Looks like a 9:1 ratio large/small gets you pretty close (second to last box on the chart)

Thanks. I swear I looked at that page multiple times and somehow missed it. Time to adjust my AA!

Honestly, you could go 100% large cap and get pretty much the same results. It's twice as many companies as the S&P 500, which already correlates very closely with the total market.
