Asset Allocation is King


In a recent blog we stressed that Asset Allocation was capable of being responsible of providing up to 80% of the total return from a portfolio and as a comparison we stated that Asset Allocation was the Elephant of investment returns and Investment Charges the mouse.

So if you are looking for Elephant type returns then your focus or your advisers focus should be on Allocation, if you want returns that are more like Mouse droppings then focus on investment charges.

One of our Brexit ready portfolios (although created for defensive qualities), was prepare with both tactical and strategic allocation in mind and has provided a positive return in a difficult market.

A pension is a long-term investment that typically cannot be accessed until age 55 (57 from April 2028). The level of pension benefits offered could change depending on the value of your investments (and any income they may generate).

The interest rates in effect at the time you begin receiving benefits may also have an impact on your pension income. The tax consequences of pension withdrawals will depend on your unique situation. In later Finance Acts, tax rates, tax bases, and tax relief may change.

You are aware that past performance will not necessarily be repeated in the future, but you should be aware that persistent poor performance invariably will.

The value of an investment and the income from it could go down as well as up.

The return at the end of the investment period is not guaranteed and you may get back less than you originally invested.
