What is Asset Allocation?

Posted on Friday, June 9, 2017 in Blog

If you’re like most investors, you have different types of assets. Because one type of asset behaves differently from another in terms of risk and return, it’s important to strategically plan what portion of your investment portfolio you’ll dedicate to each type of asset.


Proper asset allocation can provide the necessary diversification to help mitigate your investment portfolio from falling victim to the market’s short-term volatility. It’s easier to go about diversifying your portfolio when you first decide what percentage of each type of asset you’ll hold.

All investors are unique, and since there are infinite ways to allocate your assets, your portfolio can be unique too. Your time horizon and your risk-tolerance level have an impact on how you decide to allocate your assets.


With so many different asset categories, there are multiple ways to divide your portfolio. The goals you want to achieve also are important to consider.
