your opinion on this fund?
« on: May 15, 2016, 05:30:17 AM »
What are your opinions on the funds holdings and global splits? im thinking of just buying into this instead of multiple individual funds to try and make things simpler.

It seems like a totally reasonable fund to invest in. It looks similar to a global market cap fund, but overweight UK, underweight Asia.

My personal pension is 100% in this fund but will be switching to the all world ETF soon due to platform charges

Seems like a good fund, probably you could do a little better in terms of fees if you built something similar yourself, but I'm nitpicking

It seems a bit expensive for a Vanguard fund, but I guess they might just be more expensive outside of the US.

For what it is I like it. It is 100% stock, global diversification, but tilted heavier towards the UK.
