I have the Vanguard ETFs VTS (US total market) and VGAD (International – of which 65% is the US) in my portfolio but upon drilling into their fact sheets I notice 9 of the 10 top holdings are the same for each fund.
So this isn’t giving me the diversity I thought I was getting.
Question: Apart from doing a fund-by-fund analysis, is there any other way to gauge overlap?
I note that a number of listed REITs also have Property Managed Funds. Apart from the ability to put smaller amounts into listed REITs and greater liquidity, but possibly more price volitility, are there any significant differences – esp. risks – if one is looking at the larger managers – e.g; Centuria, AMP, Cromwell etc?
