  • strategic asset allocation is the most critical component in determining long-term investment returns and the trade-off between risk and return;
  • diversification across a range of asset classes and within those asset classes is an important risk mitigation factor;
  • regular rebalancing is beneficial to ensure appropriate risk tolerances are maintained so long as this is undertaken in a cost effective way;
