Is it enough to hold a single ETF S&P 500?

I’m living outside the US and I’m thinking of what are the true benefits of having multiple ETFs, one that invests on the S&P and the other outside the world, considering that a big part of the business of the S&P is international.

And also do you see any benefits in investing in the total stock market (CRSP US Total Market Index) vs the S&P 500 ETF?

I was thinking that the S&P 500 should give less tracking error and be more liquid as it can physically copy the index and all stocks are very liquid.

Also, what’s your take on investing in the MSCI world index, instead? Do you feel that provides better diversification than the S&P 500?

I’ve batched a few things together but it’s part of the same thing.

Thank you so much!
