Asset allocation is the process of deciding where to put money to work in the market.
The process aims to reduce overall investment risk and to better balance the risk and reward.
Asset allocation is more indicative of your overall returns than is individual stock selection.
Our focus is not on timing the movements of the market, but on crafting long-term plans to meet your goals.
A proactive, disciplined investment process is vital to ensuring that you capture market returns over the course of your lifetime.
With a St Louis investment firm like One Bridge, we strive to invest your portfolio so it is appropriate for your your needs and goals. Common solutions are stocks, bonds, ETFs, and mutual funds. Separately managed accounts, option strategies, short-term assets, and annuities also may be used to optimize your portfolio.
Alternative investments may be an option for a specific investor. One of the premier features of alternative investments is diversification, resulting from investments that tend to react differently to the markets than more traditional investments.
Types of Alternative Investments:
These products generally involve substantial risk and limited liquidity.
Some situations require different expertise than typical stock and bond portfolio implementation. These situations usually pertain to employer-related retirement plans and stock options, margin strategies, and real estate exchanges.
Most investors understand that as risk increases, the potential for return also increases. But each individual reaches a point where the level of risk is not worth the potential return. The goal of asset allocation is to provide you with the risk/return scenario that is most suitable for you.

Investors should note that asset allocation and diversification do not assure a profit or protect against loss in declining markets and neither can guarantee that any objective or goal will be achieved.
Alternative investments may be illiquid in nature, redeemed at more or less than the original amount invested, are subject to special risks, and are not suitable for all investors. There is no assurance that the investment objective will be attained.
