Re: Input on a Vanguard Fund Selection
The total return for this fund 5yr and 10 yr are 5.10% and 8.89% respectively (as of 12/31/03).
You say that you are risk averse but you need to take into account these risks: Income Risk (Bonds) : Medium-high
Interest rate Risk (Bonds): Medium and Stock Market Risk (stocks): Average.
With a .27%ER and the conservative returns stated above you could do a lot worse!
