Managing Your Investment Portfolio

We believe how your assets are allocated is the most important decision in the investment process. Asset allocation is not about timing the market.  It also is not about putting part of your funds in every available “bucket” in order to be diversified.  Asset allocation is structuring a diversified portfolio that fits your goals and your tolerance for market volatility and the inherent risks.

No single investment type achieves the best return year-after-year.  In fact, often the ones near the top in performance in any given year are near the bottom the following year.  Diversity across investment types or asset classes can control or limit risk. The old wisdom of not putting all of your eggs in one basket is true wisdom when it comes to investing.

Diversification and asset allocation do not ensure a profit or protect against a loss.
