There has been a lot of talk of Asset Allocation around the blog world so I thought I’d join in. Based on my current portfolio, here is my asset mix of my investments (not including savings and pension):
Total Portfolio: $184,773 (obtained from my May Net Worth Statement)
- Cash: $32,000 (17.3%)
- Bonds: $3,870 (2.1%)
- Equities: $59,080 (32%)
- Real Estate (equity): $89,823 (48.6%)
I knew that real estate made up a significant portion of my portfolio, but I didn’t realize that it made up close to half!
If I take real estate out of the equation, here is what my asset allocation looks like:
- Cash: 33.7%
- Bonds: 4.1%
- Equities: 62.2%
I am holding a significant amount of cash because of two reasons:
- I expect a pullback in the markets
- I plan on withdrawing from my non-registered portfolios for larger down payment on my next home.
That’s all for now! Cheers!
