VWELX: This 86 Year Old Fund Is Still An Ideal Choice For Retirement

In a world where there are literally thousands of funds and ETFs available that cover almost every niche, sector and style available, sometimes it's the most tried and true investment vehicles that still remain the best choices.

Launched all the way back in 1929, Wellington looks to maintain a balance of roughly two-thirds of assets in conservative large cap stocks and one-third of assets in a mix of high quality bonds. It's this type of asset allocation that makes for an ideal core holding in many retirement portfolios.
