Andrew Carrillo, President and Founder of Barnett Capital Advisors, Interviewed on the Influential Entrepreneurs Podcast, Discussing Asset Allocation in Retirement Portfolios

Andrew Carrillo discusses the importance of working with a financial planner who is a fiduciary.

Listen to the interview on the Business Innovators Radio Network:

Asset allocation is one of the most important decisions that investors make; it is also one of the most difficult. Asset allocation involves dividing an investment portfolio among asset classes, such as stocks, bonds, and cash. The percentage of each asset class in the portfolio depends on the investor’s goals, risk tolerance, and time horizon.

The goal of asset allocation is to diversify investments and minimize risk. By diversifying across asset classes, investors can reduce the volatility of their portfolios and improve their chances of achieving their financial goals.

There is no single “right” asset allocation for all investors. Each investor’s situation is unique, so working with a financial advisor to develop an asset allocation right for you is essential.

Asset allocation does not guarantee a profit or protect against losses. Asset classes may perform differently in different market conditions. Investors should consider their investment objectives, risk tolerance, and time horizon when selecting an asset allocation.

Diversification and asset allocation strategies do not assure a profit or protect against loss. Asset classes may perform differently in different market conditions.  

Asset allocation is one of the most important decisions an investor makes. The mix of assets an investor holds will determine risk and return profile. For investors approaching retirement, it is imperative to consider how asset allocation will impact the ability to generate income and maintain lifestyle.

There are several different approaches to asset allocation. Some investors prefer a static asset allocation, which means they keep the same mix of assets over time. Others use a dynamic asset allocation strategy, which means they periodically rebalance their portfolio based on changes in market conditions. The key to successful asset allocation is finding the right mix of assets for your individual circumstances. No “one size fits all” solution exists, as every investor has different goals, risk tolerance, and time horizon.
