Investment Fundamentals

The Right Asset Allocation for You

There are three major asset classes that you can put your money into, namely equities, fixed income and money market instruments. In order to decide how much of your money goes into which investment class you must first consider a few important factors (most of these will be tackled by you during your goal definition phase):

  • Return expected on your investment
  • Amount you will be able to save (present as well as future)
  • Cash outflows you might have at certain points of time in the future
  • Risk appetite
  • Amount you will require for your retirement
  • Liquidity
  • Your Age

Hence due to the variable nature of the investor’s finances and requirements there are no set strategies used by financial consultants. But we can provide you with broad strategies that you can adapt to meet you own needs.

But first please take a look at the chart below to see which category you broadly fall into. Investment protection leads to safer interest generating asset allocations where as Investment Growth leads to higher volatility assets, that may tend to grow over a period of time.

Investment Protection Vs. Investment Growth
Investor Characteristic Investment Growth Investment Protection
Time Horizon Short-term Long-term
Future Income Requirements Steady / High Variable / Low
Volatility Limit (Risk Averseness) Low High
Inflation Protection Low Protection Needed High Protection Needed
Investor take on Equity Market Mostly Bearish Mostly Bullish

If you are a person who broadly falls into the Investment Growth category you might be interested in looking at an Aggressive portfolio. On the other hand if you are leaning towards an interest income with minimal risk investments you might look at a Conservative asset allocation. Someone who wants a bit of steady income as well as asset growth might go in for a moderate or a balanced asset allocation.
