Because it is so important, asset allocation is the first investment decision. During this process we decide how much of your portfolio to invest in each of the different investment types, or asset classes. Including stocks, bonds and short-term investments; both domestic and foreign. Asset allocation does not ensure a profit or protect against a loss.
With an asset allocation in place, we now select the investment vehicles that you will use to implement your portfolio strategy. Two key investing principals guide these decisions: the importance of diversification and the value of remaining invested. There is no guarantee that a diversified portfolio will enhance overall returns or outperform a non-diversified portfolio. Diversification does not protect against market risk.
Building on the first four steps, we construct a portfolio suited to your needs, goals, investment horizon, and risk attitude.
