How to implement asset allocation strategies
Once an investor has decided to add asset allocation for his / her portfolio, the following question is "How to implement this?" A first thing to know is that there are no right or wrong answers here. There are a number of ways to do this and it will be up to each investor to determine which works best for them. Some common methods might include: 1) Buying direct shares, bonds or commodities in an overseas or domestic market; 2) Buying ETFs on the ASX that provide exposure to different domestic and global asset classes; 3) Investing in traditional unlisted active or passive managed funds for exposure to different domestic and global asset classes. Alternatively, you could blend a broad market Australian and US focused ETF for diversified exposure with a few high conviction direct shares both here and in the US for some additional “stock picking alpha”.
