I love index fund investing but there are some hidden risks that most people don’t see in other investing videos. The problem is in the huge weighting of tech stocks and other sectors in a broad market index fund. This puts you at risk in a stock market crash because it’s precisely these sectors that get hit the hardest.
By using these select Vanguard Funds instead, you diversify your investments across different sectors and strategies. You still get all the growth of the market but also the protection in dividend stocks and other assets like bonds and real estate.
