Index funds have a place in any portfolio, but I also believe that there's room for international funds, small cap funds, and other funds that have a far higher level of risk, and a far higher reward potential as well.

I personally think that everyone that's more than ten years away from retirement should weight their funds towards higher rewarding investments, even if there's more risk involved.
