Tips to Allocate Your Assets

Mar 18, 2008
It is very important to learn how to allocate assets. In fact, there are studies showing that asset allocation is one of the crucial factors in your wealth building. Failure in asset allocation may ruin your investment plan, as well as your financial goal. Yet most people do not understand how to allocate their asset. If you think you are one of this people and would like to know more about asset allocation, this article is certainly for you.

If you can allocate your assets wisely, it will help to reduce the risk of your investment. For example, if you invest in the stock market, you should never invest all your money in companies of the same trades. Some people will think that they have already tried to reduce risk by doing that. But the truth is that this is not a good way to reduce the risk. It will harm you when the trade has problems. It is always dangerous to put all the eggs in one basket. Besides, you should also consider other options of investment such as bonds, funds and real estate.

Moreover, you can try to invest in markets in other countries. It will not be really a good idea to invest locally only. Remember, you will need to reduce the risk and the diversity will certainly help. However, you should avoid investing only on countries that are financially correlated. Investing on the market in the U.S. and that in Europe at the same time may probably a good idea. You should review your investment portfolio from time to time to see if you allocate the assets well.

It will be even better if you are investing on items of negative price correlation. This means that the risk can always be balanced. For example, when the interest rate rises, the price of bond may decrease. The whole idea is that when there is such a balance, the risk will be greatly reduced.

Usually, investment with very high return will be of higher risk and vice versa. The price of stock usually fluctuates more rapidly than that of bond. There is always a trade-off between risk and return. As a result, you should not just put all your resources on the high risk investment. You should also invest on something of less risk. This does not only help you to reduce the risk as a whole but also help to yield a better return.
