What is Asset Allocation?
Asset allocation is an investment strategy that seeks to reduce investment risk, while maintaining a desired rate of return, by spreading an individual’s investments over a number of asset types. Asset allocation is based on a number of factors including: Investment Goals, Time Horizon, Liquidity Needs, Risk Tolerance, and Economic Conditions.
Why is Asset Allocation Important?
Studies show that over 90% of your total return is attributed to asset allocation, and less than 10% is due to security selection, timing, and luck.*A portfolio integrating a strategic asset allocation approach heightens returns in all markets.

How Often Should I Review My Asset Allocation?
You may want to review your asset allocation at tax time or after major lifestyle changes or dramatic market changes.
