Currently I own VOO, VXUS, QQQ, and tiny positions in ARKK. Should I buy emerging markets/mid-cap etfs? Increase my 10% position in international? Or something else. Mid 20s.

In intl markets I prefer to have higher exposure in emerging markets hence I keep VWO on top of vxus

Why is that? Less correlation with US equities? Has it performed better for you?

In my opinion 10 percent won’t really affect anything. I would go to 20 international. If you want to add some mid cap and small, you could just switch from VOO to VTI, depending on what type of account. There are plenty of good mid and small funds. I don’t think anything is a matter of should you, it is more do you want to. I have 30 percent international and I do have some mid/small but who knows if it will be better than what you currently have.

I’m a late 40’s, 3rd year Partner in Big4 who joined as a DEMD after 2 decades in industry. I’m weighing an offer to join another Firm - it’s a straight comp play for 30% higher Comp for a similar role. I realize that the BS is mostly the same at all B4, so I don’t think for a second the grass is greener. But the comp is nice, and I’m not vested enough to lose much money. Did anyone here make a similar jump to another Firm, and in the end, was it a genius move, or did you come to regret it?
