The standard is a 60/40 split, but since I'm 33 I thought I might go 10% more aggressive.

Anyone think this is unreasonable or a bad idea? I can always rebalance.

Thanks,

At your age, I would be 100% equities, except for an emengency fund. You are likely some years away from beginning to draw down the principal, and it should all be in the best growth area, equities.
