Investment consulting has a long history that has been marked by innovations occurring about every 10 years. It is incredible that “modern” portfolio theory is about 70 years old. It has stood the test of time and is currently embraced by many consultants. Every stock or bond has a risk and expected return. The big breakthrough is that combinations of stocks and bonds, called Diversification is an immensely powerful investment tool.
The original idea of “risk tolerance” is the maximum risk the client can tolerate because high risk earns high returns. This approach changed in the 1990s with the introduction of objective-based investing, discussed in this CPE webinar for CPAs and other professionals.
The risk questionnaires identify investor risk tolerance that is used to find the best model. The “60/40 rule” 60/40 equities/bonds emerged from this practice because most mappings gravitate towards limiting risk. The broad use of the 60/40 rule remains entrenched today.
However, evolution is incomplete. 60/40 stocks/bonds remain the pat solution, but it is not right for many investors, especially baby boomers.
