Asset Allocation Planner

This calculator is designed to help you determine your personal investing style and to assist you in deciding where to invest your retirement plan dollars.

Determining how to invest your retirement savings is dependent on several factors. Two key factors in the process are your tolerance for risk and your time horizon. Increased risk brings greater return, but also increased volatility and market fluctuations. One key to successful investing is balancing the risk you are willing to take with your time horizon. This tool can help you determine investment mixes appropriate for your risk tolerance and time horizon.

For each question, click on the answer that best reflects your opinion. When you are done, click on the "Calculate" button below to identify your personal investment style.
