So, if people wouldn't mind giving me their thoughts on the above (foreign percentage and necessity of REITs), I would appreciate it.Even better, give me suggestions for the whole portfolio, if you have the time! :-)largemidsmallforeign(REITs?)I can tell you what I do which is not necessarily a recommendation of what you should do.I have what I believe to be a simple portfolio using broad based index funds with a "tilt". What this means is that the major portions of the equity portfolio are a total stock market fund and a total international fund. The international is about 17% of equity. To this I have added REIT and small cap value funds at about 13% of equity each. This is to add the diversity of a low correlation asset (REIT) and to try to take advantage of the SCV premium.I have been giving some consideration to simplifying even more by dropping the REIT and SCV. Reasons? The total stock market fund already has a market weight of REIT. One can never be sure there will be a SCV premium during my investing life span.Bob
