Work less mutual fund

I was thinking yesterday. Why doesn't Vanguard create a mutual fund simular to what was discussed at the end of "work less, live more"?

Or has someone?

Re: Work less mutual fund

Mutual funds are like hair color products.

No matter how many colors you make, Someone always wants to mix two different colors together thinking that they can improve things.

There are lots of similar funds out there that will do the job you need it to.

By the way, in my opinion the work less, live more scheme is a great example of data mine-ing/data tuning. I just wonder if his approach will hold up to the next 100 years of data ?

Re: Work less mutual fund

What are your trying to do, capture every asset class in one fund? You get pretty good diversification with a Target Retirement/Lifestyle/balanced fund. Adding hedge funds, commodities, and private equity is an ionteresting idea but these asset classes are more difficult to define and you would want to hold them separately to capture gains from rebalancing.
