    FTSVX, it’s from Fidelity, should do the same as VTSAX, but has 0.015% expense fee, and would be free to trade on Fidelity unlike VTSAX. FTIPX for international exposure.

    Your asset allocation depends on your goals and your timeframe for needing the money. Assuming you won’t need any of the money for decades, then you should have a heavy allocation to equities. FTSVX and FTIPX give you exposure to “total” domestic and international markets. I’d probably do 70% FTSVX and 30% FTIPX, for the equity portion of your portfolio. And then find a bond fund like FSITX and probably keep 20% bonds there. So that would be 20% FSITX, 56% FSTVX, 24% FTIPX.

    FZROX and FZILX are zero expense ratio funds and so those may also be good options. But they will have fewer equities that they invest in, and the funds I listed already have very low costs with greater exposure. But in practice the returns may not differ much, who knows.

    I recommend looking at the portfolios from Wealthfront or Betterment (both are shown in their FAQ).

    VTSAX from vanguard. It is buying the entire stock market with a low 0.04% expense fee.
