When you want to take out all the stops and “go for it,” this is the portfolio for you. Equally weighted at home in the U.S. and abroad, this combination is a favorite of young investors with plenty of time before retirement and the ability to remain calm during market downturns. This option may also be appropriate for investore who are looking for greater return potentials, it also involves greater risk and potential for loss. Because 100 percent of the portfolio is in equities, the only buffer against the slings and arrows of the market is time. But if you’ve got the time, this may be appropriate for you.
This combination is a fine choice for many employees and especially for long-term investors. Its 60 percent weighting in equities gives it the ability for potential stock market growth, while the other 40 percent is allocated to fixed income vehicles. While fixed income vehicles still involve risk and volatility, they can potentially provide a level of predictability and/or stability in unstable markets. This portfolio is most suitable for investors with five or more years until they will need their money.
This combination stresses principal preservation, with a mix of 40 percent equities and 60 percent fixed-income investments. It is most suitable for investors who consider themselves conservative, who are close to or past the age of retirement or who, for whatever reason, care more about holding onto their money than making it grow.
