Where to put money in a rising interest rate market?

I normally put my new Roth contributions into Wellesley(VWINX). I'm wondering if I should go with Total Stock Index(VTSAX) instead because of the rising interest rates we will likely continue to see. Opinions?

Why is rising interest rates your main concern? Maybe the bigger issue will be a massive market correction in 2017....in which case the bond part of Wellesley will help buffer the hit a bit.

Bottom line is no one really knows what will happen so just pick a direction you are comfortable with and accept that it might work out to be the better choice....or it may not.

If this were you main investment, I would personally would stick with Wellesley for the diversification of having some bonds in it. Just one opinion worth every penny you paid to hear it!
