If your goal is to be as agressive as possible and still maintain diversification, you could look at doing one of the following.Follow an index strategy with the following15% Lehman Aggregate Bond Index35% Met Life Stock Index (Assuming this tracks the S&P 500)30% Russell 2000 Index20% Morgan Stanley EAFE Index (This is International Stocks) For an actively managed portfolioSalomon US Gvoernemnt Bond 15%Davis Venture Value 20%American Funds Growth Fund 20%Aim Mid Cap Core 10%franklin templeton Small Cap 15%Oakmark international 20%Without much knowledge about your risk tolerance and your definition of agressive keep in mind this is just a very rough suggestion that provides exposure to different asset classes and should help smooth out the bumps in most market conditions.
Thanks for taking the time to help me out. I will look into some of the others as well but this will give me a good base.Arby
