Asset Allocation Discussion (American View)
In this brief we offer a discussion on a practical method of how asset allocation can be used to satisfy an investor’s desire for stability and opportunity within an investment portfolio. It is our objective to create a solid basis for understanding changes in allocations when considering objectives, risks and market characteristics. The major sections start with a global view and then continue to refine focus until the allocation is centered exclusively on domestic sectors. At the end of the brief, there is a special section where consideration is given to portfolios that are concentrated in a single specific industry and how an investor can adjust a portfolio to reduce the impact of concentration.
