How The American Economic Association Allocated Its Dollars

The S&P 500 index gained 5.49 percent in 2007, while the portfolio of AEA gained 10.2 percent. Two things to take notice here:

  1. The AEA's portfolio is composed of all vanguard funds;
  2. The most significant change to the portfolio after April 2007 is a 20% shift from bond to foreign stocks.
Though the article didn't tell you what funds exactly the AEA is holding its assets in, you can easily look them up from vanguard's website based on the general funds' names given in the article. And you can also look up the corresponding ETFs' here.
