A gone-fishing portfolio has a limited number of investments with a balanced asset allocation that should do well with dampened volatility. Its primary appeal is simplicity. But a secondary virtue is that it avoids the worst mistakes of the financial services industry. This year I limited myself to nine Vanguard mutual funds adding one fund from 2016′s Vanguard calculator. For each fund I have included the ticker symbols for both the Institutional share class and the Admiral share class.
