Asset allocation is a long-term strategy designed to help investors achieve their financial goals without assuming undue risk. By allocating your assets to a diverse variety of sectors and investments, we attempt to increase the likelihood of generating a more consistent, positive return over the long term. Depending on your risk tolerance, the economic environment, your specific objectives and other factors, your portfolio may include domestic and global stocks, fixed income, real estate and alternative investments.
There is no assurance that any investment strategy will be successful. Asset allocation does not ensure a profit nor protect against loss. International investing involves additional risks such as currency fluctuations, differing financial accounting standards, and possible political and economic instability. These risks are greater in emerging markets.
