Being a DIY ETF investor is not particularly hard, but up until recently, it was not particularly easy, either. Back in 2017, the simplest portfolio around was Robb Engen’s four-minute portfolio, which consists of only two equity ETFs. If you wanted to reduce your equity exposure you would have had to buy a third ETF for bond exposure.

Three ETFs is pretty simple, but it still requires some thinking for rebalancing and some discipline to rebalance into whatever asset class is down at the time. All of that changed when Vanguard launched their asset allocation ETFs last year.
