In fact Salvor SPDR relax the rule for their ETFs, the UK one for example only requires 10 years of rising (or stable) dividends:

I had a lump sum and split half in IT's and half in ETF's
Very similar income, but ETF's had the better capital gain.

In theory, one stock should rule them all. I like VHYL or GBDV but ended up spreading mine around due to perceived counterparty risk.

Im kind of coming to the mindset that VWRL is the only investment I need.

Hah! This resonates with me as I just spent my months pay on VWRL, less a portion for bog rolls and beer. I looked down the list of opportunities open to me and decided that as I don't have a crystal ball, but I do have a long timeline, cheap global trackers are probably a sensible choice.
