#43. Is your asset allocation putting your retirement at risk?
Oct 06, 2020 Season 1 Episode 43
Aaron Agte and Trishul Patel

In this episode, Trishul and Aaron discuss the risks and rewards of potential investments across various asset allocation decisions. They cover cash, bonds, stocks, options, and other even more exotic instruments. What are the two variables that determine the risk-return profile of a bond? And where do small-cap and international stocks fit into the big picture? And what about the idiosyncratic risk of a single stock versus a diversified basket? If you understand these various risks and rewards, how do you then figure out what is appropriate for your specific situation?
