Vanguard Tax-Managed International Fund uses a tax-efficient approach to track the investment performance of the MSCI EAFE Index, an unmanaged benchmark representing international stocks. The advisor uses portfolio optimization techniques to select a sample of stocks that, in aggregate, reflect the characteristics of the benchmark index. Vanguard uses proprietary software to implement trading decisions that accommodate cash flow and maintain close correlation with index characteristics. In addition, a disciplined sell process minimizes the realization of net capital gains and may include the realization of losses to offset unavoidable gains. The experience and stability of Vanguard’s Equity Investment Group have permitted continuous refinement of indexing techniques designed to minimize tracking error and provide tax-efficient returns.

Is there a tax advantage to holding VEA + VSS + VWO at market weightings instead of holding Vanguard Total International? (eg VTIAX) (I'm aware that this slicing neglects Canada.)
Thanks for your thoughts and time. Best,
