How2 Build a Financial Portfolio

Let's start at the beginning

Ask yourself a few questionsStockButton

  • What type of portfolio do you have?
  • Does it make sense?
  • Do you feel comfortable?

Unfortunately all too often this is the type of portfolio we see

  • I think it will do well.
  • I hope that it does well.
  • I pray it does well, but I have no idea how or why I should do well.

We can teach you HOW your portfolio should work and WHY it does work the way it does.

7 Key Steps

Begin by taking the Risk Tolerance Quiz based on the work of the 2002 Nobel Prize in Economics winning behavioral psychologist Daniel Kahneman.  Many folks hate losing more than they like winning. We’re complicated, emotional creatures, especially when it comes to money.

     (1) CLICK HERE to take the short Riskalyze Quiz.

     (2) Determine the actual risk exposure of your top 7-10 investments and then review their top to bottom losses in the Great Recession.

     (3) Determine the percentage of investments to 3 investment categories:

          ____% Fixed Assets where you can’t lose your principal but could possibly earn 3-4% per year over the next 5, 10 or 15+ years.

          ____% Low Risk and Low Volatility with Capital Preservation over time and earn possibly 5-7% per year over the next 5, 10 or 15+ years.

          ____% Moderate Risk portfolio of equities where the portfolio can go “Risk Off” to cash or potentially make money even if the stock market is going up or down.

     (4) Review “Aggregate Manager Performance of the “Sleeve” of managers in the Low or Moderate Risk portfolios.

     (5) Daily management of the portfolio to determine the Relative Strength or the Trend Following aspects of the portfolio.

     (6) Monitor the overall plan with at least 2 meetings per year.

     (7) Make portfolio adjustments as needed.

All the financial rules change in retirement.   We have a plan and a process that can help you create your own “Peace of Mind” retirement. Remember: “You don’t know what You don’t know!”  We can help clear that up!

Then consider taking all you know about your requirement on a "Test Drive" with us.  Everyone that has taken our Retirement Test Drive has gained new information about their retirement options.
