Financial Advice & Asset Allocation

Asset allocation is an important way your financial adviser provides upfront and ongoing value. Investors are rewarded for the amount of risk they take, but not every investor has the same attitude to risk.

An investor’s risk tolerance can also be guided by the stage of life the investor is at.  Younger investors with a longer investment horizon will often allow themselves to increase their risk levels. Older investors moving closer to reaching their investment goals or retirement will often lower their risk to preserve the capital they have built.

It’s your financial adviser’s job to figure out the appropriate level of risk you’re willing to take. They will then build a portfolio that strikes the balance between risk assets, such as equities and listed real estate, and defensive assets, such as bonds/fixed interest and cash. The aim is to provide you with the highest possible return for the level of risk you are willing to take.

Good financial advice will ensure you have the right amount of each asset class according to your need. While a good financial planner will also ensure these assets are structured properly to ensure potential tax savings now and in the future.
