 Asset Allocation
Asset allocation refers to the way in which a person (an investor) chooses how to divide their investments. An asset can refer to stocks, bonds, real estate, and cash. The division is determinedby the needs of the individual. The goal is to maximize investment return.Investors who have an investment plan through their company, such as a 401(k), a 403(b) or a 457,may inquire with the plan administrator (usually a bank or stock broker) for information on allocationoptions. By anticipating the amount of desired return, the administrator will be able to advise how toallocate, based on past performance. For those with individual retirement accounts (IRAs) directlythrough a financial institution, inquire with the branch manager for assistance.There is also the option of obtaining an “asset allocation fund” which is specifically designed toaccomplish the goal of allocation on its own. These funds invest in a variety of different areas toprovide the investor with the desired result of diversity, without the hassle of purchasing a hugeamount of funds separately.Allocating assets is a complicated process requiring in-depth knowledge. The best course of actionwhen considering changing your allocation is to consult with a professional. Do not rely onpublications even if you feel they are from reputable companies. Financial information changesfrequently, and publications can be outdated even if new.
