    ETF Model Bucket Portfolios Get Fixed-Income Switch

    One of the benefits of owning a portfolio that's composed of exchange-traded funds is that you shouldn't have to make significant changes, if any, especially if you've populated your portfolio with broad, low-cost index trackers. My assumption is that investors will do their own rebalancing to stay in sync with their asset-allocation frameworks. Thus, I'll make changes only if one of the holdings has experienced a substantive change.
