As investors, we look for investments that give us returns commensurate to the risk we take. Model portfolios are assets that are grouped together with pre-specified weights to provide an expected return in line with the amount of risk taken.
These model portfolios are created considering in mind different requirements of investors based on their risk profile and thus accordingly helping investors in making broad asset class allocation decisions. How do you decide what percentage of your investments to be done in equities, what percentage in debt and how much in liquid funds? An individual’s risk tolerance, investment time horizon and the financials goals are the key drivers in a strategic asset allocation approach.
