Considering Larry portfolio for a portion of portfolio
I am considering using a version of the Larry Portfolio for a discrete part of my portfolio. Why this portion is discrete and why I want to be conservative with it are immaterial, however it may be important to know this portfolio has absolutely no need for liquidity.
I am thinking of replacing treasuries with TIAA Traditional which yields 3%, as that is higher than the current 30 year treasury yield without any interest rate risk. Let me know if this is way off base.
What are currently the best widely available options for US SCV and international small? Assume I don't want to use DFA funds, however if those are clearly superior in this space by enough to justify both the advisor fee and the higher ER then I would consider.
The default would be the Vanguard options, which I use in my primary portfolio because they are 'good enough'.
