Asset Allocation - 1000 Foot Overview

Traditional asset allocation is about dividing your assets among shares, bonds, property and cash. The idea is to maximize return for a level of risk, using diversification. We go deeper to explain the underlying nature of each asset classes and propose a more modern framework.  The starting point is the three Super Asset Classes:

  • Capital assets
  • Consumable/Transformable assets
  • Store of value assets  

We illustrate why the traditional framework has two weaknesses:

  • Over allocating to one asset class - Capital Assets
  • Ignores an important asset class we see as the fourth asset class - Human capital
