If you are asking if you can hold two separate investment groups in an IRA...you can. Just invest $XXXX in one set of investments (the Motley Fool Fund..whatever that might be) and the rest in a Vanguard fund.

Of you may be asking if you can create a second IRA and do a rollover of part of the $$ from the first IRA to the second so you can invest in one using the Motley Fool Fund and a Vanguard fund in the other. Yes, you can do this. But then you'll be getting a second set of account statements each year. If its important to you to keep the performance separate so its easier for you to track, a second IRA will work easier.
