what is Asset Allocation ? By Financial Consultant
The asset allocation decision is based upon your risk appetite. Risk appetite indicates how much risk you can tolerate / allow on your investments so as to achieve optimum returns. Some of the indicators that give an insight into your risk appetite are described below:
- Age: Your age is the single greatest indicator of your risk appetite. A young person will have a higher risk appetite when compared to an older person because of lesser responsibilities an a longer investment horizon.
- Investment Horizon:; people of the same age may not have the same risk appetite if their investment horizons are different. For example, a 30 year old with a 3 year investment horizon would have a lower risk appetite when compared to a 30.
- Personal Circumstances: it is possible that there is a change in your personal circumstances which might inspire you to change your strategy. For example, if there is an increase in liabilities, you might choose to take less risky assets so as to mitigate risk on your investments.
