Mr. Morningstar Money Man: 100 minus age equals equity, which means if you are 30 years old, you take 70% of your portfolio invested in equities and the rest in fixed income. Right? Wrong. Asset allocation is not a formula. It's a highly complex decision that takes into account your personal situation, including, your risk tolerance, financial goals, income, resources, your entire financial picture.
