The chart that follows is my 401(k) asset allocation. I’m striving for an aggressive approach to investing for retirement since I theoretically have many years before I would be able to stop working. The company suggests a slightly different allocation for an aggressive portfolio: 25% small/mid cap instead of my 30%, 65% large cap instead of my 45% and 10% international instead of my 25%. We don’t have many choices for specific funds, so I’m stuck with the management fees they give us.
My account is also set to automatically rebalance every quarter. Feel free to leave any comments or questions.
