Asset allocation is the process of selecting a mix of asset classes that closely matches an investor’s financial profile in terms of their investment preferences and tolerance for risk. It is based on the premise that the different asset classes have varying cycles of performance, and that by investing in multiple classes, the overall investment returns will be more stable and less susceptible to adverse movements in any one class.
The financial planning process at Stegent Equity Advisors, Inc. begins with an in-depth evaluation of your current financial situation. Once we’ve established your overall objectives, we’ll focus on your specific goals. With changing economic conditions and market swings, we advocate investing sensibly over the long run and maintaining an adequate level of insurance coverage.

A person who turns 65 today could be expected to live 30 or more years in retirement as compared to a retiree in 1950 who lived, on average, an additional 15 years. Longer life spans have created a number of new issues that need to be taken into consideration when planning for retirement.

The stock market has had a bumpy ride the first few months of 2018. If the ups and downs have left you feeling uneasy, you are not alone. It is a natural reaction to feel confident when the market is up and ready to run for the hills when it is down. However, more times than not, our emotions can betray us when it comes to investing, leading us to sell low and buying high; the exact opposite of what an investor has been taught to do. The good news is you can use these conflicting feelings to work for you by flipping the script and acting in the opposite manor that you are inclined to. Now this is no easy task. Even the most successful investors fall prey to their emotions at some point.
