Trader Circle Investing

The Asset Allocation Matrix: Investing Based on your Risk Tolerance

When we talk about asset allocation, or where you are going to invest your funds and how much, what we really mean is matching your investments with your risk appetite.

Whether you’re a first home buyer, season property investor, or just looking to upgrade the family home – the artificially low interest rate environment has meant money has never been cheaper to borrow. After 10 solid years of interest rates falling lower and the property market roaring, investors have been able to gear up with relatively low risk, until now.

It’s already happening
