There is Romance in Asset Allocation!


.

Last Friday my husband and I did our usual Wedding Anniversary Day (or days) Off. It has been our tradition for the last 27 years! It all started when Manila Hotel (where we held our reception) gifted us with a free accommodation on our first wedding anniversary. So even if our honeymoon baby was only three months old then, we took a day off, just the two of us. Thanks to my mom, she was always our reliable guardian in times like this.

On our anniversary day, we still do the cheesy stuff. Marvin gives me a bouquet of flowers then we go off to a resort or a hotel we haven’t been to (or maybe one with free accommodation which we would occasionally receive as a gift). We’d watch bits and pieces of our wedding album and video (which was originally in Betamax) and reminisce about that eventful day, the 12th of August 1989. As the years went by, these pieces of memorabilia have been expanded to include our Tin (10th), China (20th) and Silver (25th) anniversaries. Yes we’ve said “I do” in ceremonies four times already. In fact, every single year we renew our vows privately during our anniversary.

What else do we do?

What else do we do?

Marvin and I are admittedly romantic and we think this is one of the things that help keep our marriage alive. But on our anniversary, we also get down to business. We visit our Balance Sheet together and review our Asset Allocation! We’re weird that way, you know. :)

What is Asset Allocation? It is an investment strategy that attempts to balance risk versus reward by adjusting the percentages of the asset classes in your investment portfolio. Whether you are aware or not, you are implementing an asset allocation and this will play an important role in your wealth accumulation; consequently, the quality of your married life in your ripe old age.

Why is Asset Allocation important? Asset Allocation is the probably the most important investment strategy, even more important that stock picking, timing, etc. It’s because nobody can really predict the movements of the financial markets, the economy, both local and global, and this strategy helps you protect your portfolio from market ups and downs, by spreading your risk among the different asset classes.

Asset Classes. A couple may (or should I say should?) invest in the following asset classes:

  1. Cash and other Cash Equivalents – cash on hand, savings and current accounts, time deposits, money market placements. These are highly liquid instruments with maturity of three months and below.
  2. Bonds – are debt instruments in which you, (the investors) lend money to the bond issuer, usually a corporation or the government. It has a defined tenure and an agreed-upon interest rate.
  3. Equity or Stocks – an investment that signifies ownership in a corporation, giving you a claim in the assets and earnings of a corporation.
  4. Real Estate – your house, if you own one, usually makes up a significant part of your portfolio. This may also include other real estate properties purchased for investment purposes either for rental income or asset appreciation for eventual sale.
  5. Others – these are your other properties of value such as paintings and other art pieces, jewelry, etc. For more savvy couples, they may also have gold, commodities, forex and other investment instruments.

*Note that you may invest either directly or through pooled funds (Mutual Funds or UITFs - Unit Investment Trust Funds) when buying stocks, bonds and money market instruments. Pooled Funds for real estate (REITs), gold and other commodities are not yet available in our country.

How to allocate. There are various prescribed allocations being recommended out there. Let me share what the three investment icons, Benjamin Graham, John Bogle and Warren Buffett have to say about asset allocation.

  1. Benjamin Graham’s 50:50 Stocks and Fixed Income.

Image 02

The mentor of Warren Buffett and author of investing bible The Intelligent Investor said, “We have suggested as a fundamental guiding rule that the investor should never have less than 25% or more than 75% of his funds in common stocks, with a consequent inverse range of 75% to 25% in bonds. There is an implication here that the standard division should be an equal one, or 50-50, between the two major investment mediums.”

  1. John Bogle’s Your Age in Bonds.

Image 03

The Father of Low Cost Index Funds and founder of Vanguard Group said in his book Common Sense on Mutual Funds, “I recommend as a crude starting point that an investor’s bond position should be equal to his age.” This is very similar to the 100 minus Age equals Stocks, which is now being adjusted to either 110 or 120 less age due to the longer life spans we are now experiencing.

  1. Warren Buffet’s 90:10 Low Cost Index Funds:ST Gov’t Bonds.

Image 04

The world’s greatest investor said in his 2013 Letters to Berkshire Hathaway Shareholders that upon his passing the trustee of his wife’s inheritance was instructed to put 90% of her money into low-fee index funds and 10% into short-term government bonds.

Please take note that the above asset allocations are based on two basic asset classes only – fixed income bonds and stocks. These are rules of thumb from the investment icons and as in any rule of thumb, it provides us a quick and easy starting point. It works well for couples or individuals who are just starting a portfolio.

Instead of limiting yourself to any of the above formula or the others you will find in various sources, I suggest you come up with your own. Discuss it as a couple and bear in mind the important things to consider in your asset allocation.

Things to Consider in your Asset Allocation

  1. Goals. What are your goals as a married couple? As a family? Each goal has a corresponding price tag and timetable. What kind of retirement do you want to have? Try to match each goal with the best asset class.
  2. Age. How old are you? How much time do you have in fulfilling those goals?
  3. Risk appetite vs. Reward. What’s your risk appetite? Remember the risk return trade off? The higher the return, the higher the risk. The lower the risk, the lower the return. So figure out what the right mix is for you. It will also help if you include assessing what you’re good at. Some people who are good at spotting real estate deals may well include a good portion of this in their portfolio. This can also be true in the other asset classes like art pieces, etc.

All of the above will help you come up with the best asset allocation for your own needs. What is great about periodically checking your asset allocation is that you are able to update your financial journey in line with your life goals and dreams. Your goals and dreams change as you move from one life stage to another. So should your asset allocation. The regular assessment will remind you to re-balance. Rebalancing is quite difficult because it is counter-intuitive. It asks you to sell the asset class that’s doing well and buy the one that’s not doing so well. So this exercise of regular assessment will nudge you to do it.

There is romance in Asset Allocation.

Some think that money is the least romantic thing. Talking about it may bring about uneasiness, stress, etc. This is the reason why many couples do not talk about money deliberately. Unfortunately, not being deliberate about where you put your money is what brings about the loss of romance! I’m not kidding. Studies show that seven out of ten marital problems are about money.

So the next time you celebrate your wedding anniversary, you may want to include Asset Allocation in your lovey dovey agenda. Make it fun! :) It’s an opportunity to share your big dreams and carry on your journey in unison.

I also invite single persons to include this on their birthday assessment. Whether you’ll get married or not, it is something that you should be deliberate about.

May you reach all your dreams through your sound asset allocation!

Hey Rose! Do you take sessions on Financial Literacy? If so, what do you cover in those sessions?
Guest Feb 02, 2015
Hi Ms. Rose, Were can i get the free download excel file to show kids how they can become millionaires with regular savings. Thanks

Answered by Rose last Feb 18, 2015 / 03:25pm:

Hi, it's on the right hand side under Chapter 6, go there and look for the link: http://www.raisingpinoyboys.com/book/chapter/NgRPBRPB/Q0hBUFRFUiA2IC0gTU9ORVkgTUFUVEVSUyAoT3VyIFNvbidzIEZRKQRPBRPB

Ghurl Vacaro Jul 18, 2013
Hi Ms. Rose, I read your articles in Philippine Star and I'm quite interested on your topics about financial literacy. I just turned 25 and currently working in Riyadh, I'd like to make my savings grow while I'm still young and single, can you give me advice on how or where is the wisest way to save or invest? Thanks a lot! God bless you!

Answered by Rose last Apr 23, 2014 / 02:41pm:

Hi Ghurl Vacaro. I hope you read my article that tackled your question. I'm happy to inform you that it received a lot of hits both in this website and PhilStar.com. It was also shared many times. This means that your question helped enlighten a lot of people. Here's the link: http://www.raisingpinoyboys.com/dashboard/showArticle/MTYy

Raymund Camat Nov 25, 2012
For the boys, will you also consider financial literacy as a quality that you will look for to your future gf/wife?

Answered by The Boys last Nov 30, 1999 / 12:00am:

It would be ideal if she were but it's not something we would really "require" so to speak because it's not very common. I guess as long as she's not too much of the "magastos" type because financial literacy is something that you could learn.

Guest Aug 30, 2011
Why the title "Raising Pinoy Boys?"? Its culture specific and middle class ideologue ..care to explain? thanks

Answered by Rose last Aug 31, 2011 / 09:33pm:

@Guest Aug 30, 2011. The title is Raising Pinoy Boys because it's a compilation of a mother raising her Pinoy sons. Yes it's culture specific and middle class because that's where I belong. In my over 2 decades of parenting I have always learned a lot from specific stories of book authors, parenting seminar speakers and even conversations with other parents and educators of boys. Thus, I thought it would be worthwhile to share my specific stories and those of the parents of the successful Pinoy men I featured in the book. Thank you very much for your question.

Guest Aug 10, 2011
Can we invite you to talk in our school during a parenting seminar?

Answered by Rose last Aug 10, 2011 / 09:19pm:

@Guest Aug 10, 2011 - Yes you may. I would be glad to. Just send me an email specifying your needs for the talk - the audience, the topic, etc. You may send your email to RaisingPinoyBoys@yahoo.com or through this website. Be sure to leave your name and email address. Thank you.

du u know chris tiu?

Answered by Rose last May 27, 2011 / 11:39am:

I first heard of Chris Tiu when he became a UAAP basketball player of the Ateneo team. I learned about his other admirable traits later on and decided to include him in the book. Fortunately, his mom is a friend of my co-parent so I was able to interview her. He and his parents attended the book launch (see pics in a previous article on the book launch - Jan 2011).

Angelita Kersey - Nike Free 4.0 Flyknit Women www.free50sneaker.com Apr 24, 2015
Since the Free 5.0 is marketed as a ?minimalist? shoe, Nike Free 5.0 I fully expected to only do shorter runs in them. But I was surprised by how much cushion the Free 5.0 packs. It felt much more cushioned than either the Karhu Flow Trainer or the Skechers GoRun. If I had to compare the cushion to any of the shoes I?ve run in, I would choose the Mizuno Precision before I would choose either of the minimalist shoes I?ve tried. Nike Free 4.0 In fact, if it weren?t for the minimalist marketing that comes with it, the Free 5.0 could easily pass as a flexible lightweight trainer. If the pair I received were not too small, I definitely would have gone on longer runs in the Free 5.0. There is of course an upside as well as a downside to this amount of cushion. Nike Free 3.0 The upside is the Free 5.0 will appeal to a wider audience of runners. Runners looking to move to a more minimalist shoe can use the Free 5.0 as a transition shoe. This may be especially appealing for runners who don?t want a midsole feature designed to promote a midfoot strike, Nike Free Run 3 like the ones found in both Karhu and Sketchers. Biomechanically efficient runners who are looking for a flexible trainer with a lower heel-to-toe differential (it is 9mm on the Free 5.0), but not the minimalist experience per se, can turn to the Free 5.0. The downside is runners looking for that barefoot experience will find the Free 5.0 too cushioned for their purposes. Nike puts their Phylon EVA foam in the midsole, Nike Roshe Run which gives the Free 5.0 a much firmer feel than Nike?s other shoes with Cushlon in the midsole, like the Pegasus or Vomero, but that firmness may not be enough to give minimalist runners the ground feedback they seek.
