No. of Recommendations: 0
As my company uses Vanguard for 401k, my dad recommended that I use T.Rowe price to "diversify". Does his logic have any merit?

Also, I posted on another board and a person recommended that I choose one Index/ETF for now. Thoughts? (see below)

"At 22 I'd just buy the Total Stock Market Index Fund (VTSMX) or its ETF equivalent (VTI).

When you have a large enough account balance to split it between two funds, I'd add the Vanguard FTSE All-World ex-US (VFWAX) or its ETF equivalent (VEU).

At you age you probably don't need any allocation to fixed income (outside of a 3 to 6 month emergency fund).
