Sticking With Tradition
“Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication” - Leonardo da Vinci’s adage could just as easily apply to investing. The basic portfolio-allocation model of 60% stocks, 40% bonds has stood the test of time and provided generations of investors and financial advisors with a balanced investment approach.
The strategy behind the 60-40 rule lies in modern portfolio theory, which prescribes that diversifying asset classes often can provide returns at lower volatility. In fact, between 1969 and 2009, a 60-40 index portfolio delivered just 2% lower returns than a 100%-stock portfolio, but with 40% lower volatility. The strategy can also outperform tactical asset allocation strategies over different time periods.
