These are Vanguard's four broad international index funds. Any of the four is a good core international holding, and all four are eligible for the foreign tax credit, should have very low capital gains, and are thus suitable for taxable accounts. You might also hold Vanguard Emerging Markets Index Fund if you hold one of the funds which has no emerging markets.
