Fidelity Zero Total Market Index Fund and the Fidelity Zero International Index Fund

Small cap value fund like VTVW

I would focus on a good mix. Obviously this is not actual investing advice but personally think for my goals I follow something like 60% us stocks, 25% international stocks, 10% alternatives 5% bonds and and cash equivalents. For index funds I focus on expense ratios. I like the Vanguard options. For both international and US I use a mix of total stock market, value and growth funds (small, mid and large cap). For alternatives I use REITs and commodity etfs. You won't outperform the market with that but it's well diversified with decent risk for the expected returns. Couple to look into : VWO, VWILX, VWIAX, VDIPX, VINST, VSGIX, VNQ, VTV, VIG, VEA... Check Vanguard or your broker's lineup. If you just start out from scratch, start with the total market ones and then work your way into more specialized funds (like sector specific, growth, value etc). Longterm pick a few individual stocks that you understand the business of. I think this is just more fun to get "invested".
