With markets now near all-time highs, one of the jargons that is on top of the pile is “Asset Allocation”. Every newsletter or interview, whether of your fund manager, your broker or your bank refers to this term and advises investors to heed market valuations and “stick to their asset allocation”.
While Asset Allocation is one of the most under-estimated tools for building long-term wealth, the words “asset allocation” themselves are quite a technical term and these words are not necessarily part of an average investor’s lexicon. This implies that many investors may not be aware of what this term means, or even worse, may have a wrong understanding of this term.
That said, Asset Allocation is one of the most under-estimated tools for building long-term wealth, and the below primer explains what Asset Allocation is, why and how you should use it and how you can benefit from it.
