Schwab EFT International Help

Decided to go with a Schwab ETF version of the 3 Fund Portfolio. My question centers around the weighting of the 3 International funds.

SCHB US Broad Market

SCHZ. US Aggregate Bond

SCHC International Small Cap Equity
SCHF international Equity
SCHE Emerging Market Equity

Personally I would consider 5%,5%,5% for the 3 International funds. I don't see much overlap on brief look in terms of top holdings and countries, though sector wise they may be a little heavier towards financial. Just my 2 cents.

If you want to have your combination of 3 Schwab ETFs to match the Vanguard total int'l stock index fund, then very little playing around with the M* instant X-ray tool suggests the following:
65% SCHF
15% SCHC
20% SCHE

Run it yourself and confirm.
