    Very disingenuous click bait headline. Should read, how to perform better than a Vanguard Target Date Fund. Vanguard is perfect for idiots like me, the same type that buy a nice reliable boring used car.

    i have VFIFX, but I think you have good points. does M1 offer something that vanguard doesn't though? seems like i could just sell my current shares and purchase the ETFs through vanguard for the same expense ratios/outcome and not mess with a new interface. cheers.

    What if I open an Roth IRA with Schwab.. do I have to open up a new Roth IRA for M1 finance? Or does those funds automatically transfer?

    Thanks in advance! New investor newbie of 2 weeks! I’m happy to come across ur channel

    Wait, if you add all the expense ratio, isn’t it more more than .15%? (.03+.08+.08+.04 = .23%) am i wrong?

    Hi, thank you. I just come across your video and checked out your channel, thank you for explaining finances in the terms that everyone can understand.

    I have a question about this video. In the UK we get tax relief of 20%. So if I put £100 into my pension extra £20 will be added to my pension pot by the government. If I buy ETFs through standard investment ISA I would loose than benefit. How can I calculate if lower fees worth loosing out on the 20% tax relief.

    A lot of people are paying their local Financial Advisor and losing 2% out the back end. I'll stick with my target fund

    I guess I'm lucky. My employer 401k offers the Vanguard target date funds and the ER is already .05.

    I started a new job after graduating college and I got a Vanguard Target Retirement 2060 Inv with my employer. Here I am receiving mail from them and being too scared to even look at it because I never learned anything about investing or even retirement. This made it so easy to understand!! Thank you!!!

    Your point about reducing expense ratios via M1 by mimicking the investment portfolio of a good target fund is well taken, but did you consider the impact of employer match contributions for target funds? For example, if a company offers a 5% match with a target fund, why wouldn't I take the free money? Won't I come out ahead if I have more money to invest in a target fund then I would with the M1 portfolio that does not have employer match contributions?

    I don't know why Vanguard even bothers with 10% bonds. Why not just go all stocks until you reach over 60K? Otherwise the protection having 10% in bonds is's a waste of money. Those target date funds are wide open to being cut in half during major crashes. Happened to me in 08.

    In regards to rebalancing, would you not want/need to sell and rebuy shares based on the new percentages or allocation? Or are we just modifying percentages for newly purchased shares?

  21. Lois
    July 30, 2021 at 9:07 am

    It wouldn’t save me much if anything because my target retirement funds (target 2065) are in my brokerage. Eventually I’d have to rebalance over a certain account balance which is taxable. I’d reach that rather quickly at over 2k/month contributions increasing and capping out at 4K/month by 29 in my brokerage. I’m 25. [Yes I do max my Roth IRA and contribute to an employee 5% matching plan (TSP); and these I manage more individually, because of the tax benefits.]

    What about doing this on the Vanguard platform? Why use something else? Thank you

    July 30, 2021 at 9:07 am

    using your example if you had 30 years to retire would you still keep the bonds at 10 percent or no bonds at all for the first 10 or 20 years?

    Hi Joe. Quick question hopefully you can answer I'm 31 and looking to invest for the next 35 years I have a vanguard account roth Ira looking for very high growth and return what would it take for me to become millionaire by 65?

  25. Anand Allan

    Even though the Expense Ratio are very low on these ETFs, the ROI of the target date fund will offset the cost. I used VFFVX that has a 10.08% return since inception.

    July 30, 2021 at 9:07 am

    Great info. To bad that M1 does not have the option to create a roth ira for my kids under my account as Vanguard does. I am definitely doing this on my acct.

    What if that is the only decent choice in your 401k . ?

  28. Christopher Loeser

    Isn’t there a difference between Target Date Funds and Target Date Index Funds, i.e. the Index versions having a much lower net expense ratio?

    July 30, 2021 at 9:07 am

    Most people are going to do just fine with a target date fund. Yeah, the fee are slightly more expensive than if you just build your own portfolio, but a lot of people to do not have the discipline to do that. Target date fund takes care of that for them and allows them to just focus on plugging money into their 401k, IRA, or whatever like it's a savings account and not have to worry about the investing part of it.

    What is m1finance? My 401k is with vanguard can I still use this method?

    I watched up to the 60 second marker.

    All I saw was a pinkie toe with no nail repeat the title of the video broken across several exclamatory bits of empty value. I even listened to the sentence about not wasting my time and getting straight to the point. If you have to waste my time saying that you arent going to waste my time, you have already wasted my time.

    Holy christ dude this video is buzzfeed clickbait bullshit. If you really have info for anyone, just actually say it. Watching you babble about your title for 10% of your video kills every cell in yoir viewers body. I lost a buzz just getting through your intro, and I have hella good weed.

    Now im wasting my time on a tutorial for you about not wasting anybodys time by not telling them that you wont be wasting their time.

    Fuck you.

    He states an Investment Return of 10% is high, but he's "just comparing the two, not factoring in inflation". That number matters, though. The same inputs, except with a more realistic (IMO) Investment Return of 6%, result in a difference of <$28k. Also bear in mind if you're single, you'll only be able to contribute $6k per year to an IRA, not $12k like his example states, which is a difference of <$14k. But I guess that doesn't make for as exciting of a video title…

  33. peterockin it
    July 30, 2021 at 9:07 am

    Target date fund expense ration: 0.15%
    Individually added up: .03 + .08 + .08 + .04 = 0.23%

    Maybe a stupid question but.. How does that save?

  34. B Thompson

    I have owned a Vanguard TDF for many years and I'm averaging a 9.8% return. Are you a CFP, series 7 broker or series 66 investment adviser? Are you offering to rebalance and manage M1 ETF portfolios for investors you don't even know? There are tools built into TDFs that provide automatic planning and risk mitigation for busy people who are not candidates for what you're recommending. Automation and consistency directly through Vanguard's TDFs plays a part in a diversity of retirement planning approaches. Show us your actual ETF and TDF portfolio(s) with at least a 5-year history comparing outcomes.

    I would do a 3 fund pie cutting out BNDX as it is hedged to the US dollar so its pretty much going to track exactly the same as BND and thus is redundant and does not offer any risk reduction. I would go 65%VTI, 25% VXUS, 10%BND.

    Is there a way to find out exactly when vanguard changes their allocation and not just update every January 1st?

    Hello Joe,
    One question: I have a Webull and a Robinhood investment account. Do you think I also need a M1 account too? Thank you! Desert Doug

    What advantage does M1 provide? Why not just buy the ETFs in your Vanguard account directly?

  41. Gi C
    July 30, 2021 at 9:07 am

    Clarify please, if you select those vanguard funds (the same as the target retirement fund offered by Vanguard) you still going to pay individual fund you selected to make up the extract the same model as the target retirement fund by Vanguard. You now have to pay individual expense ratio on each fund that you picked. I calculated each fund based on the each individual expense ratio you pay more than 0.15%. On fund is 0.04%, another is 0.08%, another one is 0.08%, and the last one is 0.03, adding them together we have 0.23%. This will be the expense ratio you will need to pay on each fund even you use M1 finance. I might be wrong on this.
