Investment horizon of 25+ years. Should I be investing in 90-100% equities?
Just started investing in mutual funds (TD E-series index funds and bond fund). Plan was to do 75/25 equities/bonds, but with my investment horizon being 25+ years, I'm rethinking whether I should up the equity to 90-100%. I don't really see the point of investing much, if any, in bonds at this time. It does help mitigate bigger losses, but if I feel that the Index funds will come out ahead over the 25+ years, all the bonds really do is negate some of my potential gains.
Does it make sense to be more aggressive in my allocation?
