Asset allocation strategy
At Amplify Wealth Management, available through CFS*, we want to be your financial partner for life. Your CFS* Advisor will work with you to explain different investment options and strategies that may help you reach your goals. You are at the center of the entire financial planning and investment process, and your Advisor will create a plan that helps fit your individual goals, circumstances, and risk tolerance.
The first step is an analysis of your financial needs and goals. They’ll discuss your current situation, your investment time frame, and your tolerance for various types of investment risk.
Next, they create an investment strategy and determine how to diversify your investments among different types of assets. Each investor’s asset allocation strategy is uniquely tailored to their financial goals, risk tolerance, and timeframe.
Your CFS* Advisor will analyze available options and recommend a blend of investment products designed to complement your goals. Some of the investments you may choose from are: Stocks, bonds, and mutual funds, Fixed- and variable-rate annuities, Exchange-Traded Funds (EFTs) and Unite Investment Trusts (UITs), and Professionally-managed portfolios.
Your CFS* Advisor will work with you to monitor your portfolio’s performance. Adjustments may be made to your asset allocation in response to market conditions or to changes in your risk tolerance or goals.
Your CFS* Advisor will keep in contact with you throughout the year, updating you on any changes in your portfolio, as well as any issues that might affect your investment strategy.
