Should Asset Allocation Be Monitored?

Once my broker or financial advisor decides on an asset allocation plan for my portfolio, should the allocation be monitored?

If you have an ongoing relationship with your full service stockbroker or financial advisor, then your broker or advisor likely has accepted responsibility to monitor and to suggest changes to your asset allocation.

The purpose of asset allocation is to diversify your investments in different classes of assets so as to minimize your risk. Your risk may not be the same as another investor’s risk and depends on things such as your individual goals, your age, and the state and stability of the financial markets.

If you suffer a financial loss because of the allocation of assets in your investment portfolio, then you may have the right to bring a securities arbitration claim before FINRA to try to recover your losses.
