VTRIX has done somewhat better than FSIIX over the long haulThat's because VTRIX is value tilted and has some (~10%) emerging markets in it. Emerging markets has a higher return than the developed markets. Value in international has historically returned an annual ~2% premium compared to intl. large cap blend. FSIIX has no emerging markets at all. 80% FSIIX + 20% VEIEX is the equivalent of the Vanguard Total Intl. Index. See Richard Ferri's _All_About_Asset_Allocation_, chapter 7 and international equity.BTW if you buy the Vanguard Emerging Market ETF, VWO you can avoid the 0.5% "load" paid the fund on buying and selling into VEIEX.Paul
