Title: What's a good substitute for VXUS?
Post by: frozenpenguin on February 27, 2015, 08:33:23 PM
I have my IRA at Ameritrade and I want to start using a 3 fund portfolio.  Ameritrade offers VTI and BND as fee-free funds, but not VXUS.  They do offer these Vanguard international funds fee-free though:  VEA, VEU, VGK, VSS, VWO.  Would any of those (or combo of those) work as a good substitute for VXUS?

I just want to second VEU.  That is the best possible option in this case.  It is a great substitute all by itself so there is no need to combine the others.
