The big Swiss banks have made a lot of loans into Eastern Europe. It is not impossible to think that if those banks get into trouble that the Swiss central bank will print up some Francs to bail them out.

I went ahead with VTWSX which is the MF version of VT. Why? No good reason.  In some ways Global offers more stability, in others, more volatility.  Really, it's a coin toss, but in classic HB fashion I won't try to predict the future. I'll just make a play on both outcomes.  Maybe Global will be the new Total Stock Market.


P.S.  I own some PRPFX so my true domestic to int. equity holdings are more like 65/35 respectively.
