Salary, bonus, stock options, retirement plans, sale of a business, gifts, life insurance and inheritance…these items and many more provide means to accumulate assets. The professional integration of income tax, estate tax, retirement and investment planning can accelerate the rate of accumulation from all sources.
Asset allocation is the way in which you spread your investment portfolio among different asset classes, such as stocks, mutual funds, alternative investments, real estate, and bonds. Combining these investments in a portfolio can help reduce the variability of returns, commonly referred to as "market risk". The asset allocation that is right for you depends on your investment time frame, goals, and tolerance for risk. As your investment time frame and goals change, so will your asset allocation. Quarterly rebalance is the norm, but life changing events such as marriage, the birth of a child, or retirement will cause you to reevaluate your overall strategy. An investment strategy reexamines priorities of specific financial goals, anticipates needs for the future, and prepares for the unexpected.
