Q. I have between 10 and 15 years to work until retirement (I am 52 yrs old). Right now, my contribution allocation is:
S: 25 percent
C: 25 percent
L: 20 percent
G: 30 percent
The distribution is more diversified. What do you think? I don’t know what I am doing; therefore, I am just guessing.
A. Your allocation is basically: 50 percent stocks, 20 percent bonds and 30 percent cash. This would generally be considered a moderately conservative allocation. Whether, or not, it’s right for you is impossible to say without more information and analysis, but it doesn’t appear to be grossly inefficient to me.
