Thinking about putting 100% of it in VEU.

Is this wise?

Ask your question in the context of the link in my signature - Asking Portfolio Questions.
Your question is much too vague to provide a response without rest of the data including what your asset allocation plan is.

Welcome :D
As "Grt2bOutdoors" commented:

IMHO: without a comprehensive context relevant to your total financial status, there's no way to answer the question in a meaningful and actionable way that would be useful to you.

definitely need more info before we can answer. But why VEU (Vanguard FTSE All World - ex US ETF, for those who don't have tickers memorized) instead of VT (Vangaurd Total World Stock Market Index ETF)?? Why are you trying to exclude the U.S. from your investing?

Didn’t you already ask this question in December? Are you expecting different answers? There is a search function that allows you (or anyone else) to search your old posts.

From a new guy on this forum, why do you like VEU? Appears the 10 year return is rather low compared to some other things that are of similar risk?

It’s quite possible that he wasn’t satisfied with the responses at that time, and felt that he might get a better response this time around. Just a guess..
