What is asset allocation?

Investment asset allocation is the process of using different investment strategies to spread out any investment risks amongst diverse asset classes. Asset allocation strategies can be categorised into different types based on the assets being invested in, including equity asset allocation, debt asset allocation or fixed income allocation, and money or cash allocation.

When you calculate investment allocation using an asset allocation calculator, you will also need to factor in alternative assets such as commodity investments, art purchases, and real estate.

What are the types of asset allocation strategies?

While calculating asset allocation using an asset allocation calculator, it is important to remember that there is no fixed way of conducting investment asset allocation. Financial advisors can help you arrive at the best strategy for you based on a number of factors including your age, goals, and risk appetite.

  • Age-based investment asset allocation

    Investment asset allocation is done based on your age in this strategy. Calculating asset allocation with this strategy involves basing investment decisions on the investor’s life expectancy. Stock allocation in this strategy is based on the deduction of the investor’s age from 100 which is the base value. A high life expectancy equals to a riskier owner’s equity calculation.

  • Life cycle funds asset allocation

    This strategy works on the basis of targeted date of returns. Calculating asset allocation with this strategy involves maximising one’s ROI by keeping three factors in mind – risk appetite, age, and investment goals.

    Other popular investment asset allocation strategies include:

    • Constant weight investment asset allocation

    • Tactical investment asset allocation

    • Insured investment asset allocation

    • Dynamic investment asset allocation
