I originally posted this on the Mutual Funds discussion board but thought it might be relevant here as well.

With an ~17,000 balance in a Roth IRA and anticipated 30 years to retirement, would following the current Vanguard ETF model portfolio listed in Rule Your Retirement be prudent? The IRA account is currently with Schwab but can be moved to Vanguard to minimize fees. To invest in ETF's at Vanguard it is my understanding that a brokerage account linked to the Roth IRA has to be established from where allocations are directed to specific ETFs.

One other important aspect is the fact that additional contributions to the IRA will be negligible for the next three years.
