For my money the best balanced fund combination is a 50/50 mix of Vanguard Wellesley and Wellington. For clients I prefer a mix of Young Research’s retirement compounder stocks and individual bonds and bond funds. The key difference from the Wellesley and Wellington mix is our stocks provide an eclectic group of international holdings and the bonds have a shorter maturity. But as you can see with my chart it’s the balanced approach that gives you the confidence to stay in the fight.
