No. of Recommendations: 7
I use three index bond ETFs for my fixed income portfolio (30%):

40% BND
40% BWX
20% PCY

My main criteria for these choices:

1. Laziness -- following my lazy index investing philosophy
2. Low expense ratios
3. Lots of non-US$ diversification

My equity portfolio (70%) holds five indexed ETFs

26% VTI
17% VBR
26% VEU
17% SCZ
14% VWO

I really only have to look at this portfolio once a year. Gives me a lot of time to do some serious slumming <grin>.
