But since you didn't know what the asset allocation was (nor any of us did) and then proceeded to imply that investing in index funds would or could have done better.Are you equating index funds to stock index funds? Vanguard offers a variety of index funds, not just US stock index funds, but also a REIT index fund, various international index funds, balanced index funds, targeted retirement index funds, and bond index funds. See http://flagship2.vanguard.com/VGApp/hnw/FundsByFundType?View=IndexFundsSo, for many asset allocation plans, one can use just index funds, and still not be 100% in equities.
