1 month Long Term ETF Portfolio for Retirement Reddit     

Hi all,

The idea with this portfolio is that they are mostly actively managed and focus on goals rather then specific companies or industries. If, say, 3D modeling goes out of style in replacement of something more advanced, Ark Invest will adjust its products accordingly. Seeing how profitable each of these are it is incredibly unlikely they will be dissolved any time soon. With that in mind, these ETFs focus on many groundbreaking things that will inevitably become the cornerstones of our society by the time I retire in 2060. Currently, each of these products has outperformed the SPX thrice over with VCR having taken the lead at a 245% YTD return. CXSE takes last place with 43% return YTD but still outperforms SPX in the same time horizon. A key advantage is that this portfolio taps heavily into foreign markets and has holdings comprised of securities on the Honk Kong exchange and other foreign markets (Most notably Tencent). There is diversity found both geographically and financially. I am keeping each at a weighting between 8 and 12 percent as to not overindulge into one specific security. Given the massive share price of VCR it can be difficult at times as one share equates to 10% of my current portfolio.

Many of these ETFs are rebalanced quarterly and/or monthly by active managers. Vanguard’s VCR fund is the only one that isn’t actively managed but the inherent concept of its holdings keeps it on top.

Many of these ETFs have overlapping securities dominating their Top 10 holdings. Given that they are primarily growth ETFs this is expected. The biggest overlaps include Tencent, Alibaba, MercadoLibre, Twitter and Tesla.
