I've got around 67% of our overall portfolio in fixed assets with Vanguard, with the rest in equity funds at Vanguard. The fixed allocation is about two-third intermediate investment grade, the balance in short-term investment grade. I don't really know what else to do with our fixed assets. I too am not interested in buying individual bonds, nor am I interested in buying bunches of CDs from a bank/banks. Our fixed allocation is a more than minimal seven-figure amount, so bonds funds at Vanguard seem to make the most sense for our fixed allocation. The duration is fairly short for both the short and intermediate funds. I'm retired, so protecting an income stream and our portfolio are my primary concerns right now. Good luck.
