Doug Goldstein, CFP® and director of Profile Investment Services Ltd., and Tom Jacobs, money manager with Huckleberry Capital Management, discuss rules of thumb for asset allocation.

Can asset allocation be reduced to a formula, or is it more complicated than that. Tom doesn’t believe the old-fashioned asset allocation rules are the answer for everything. He shares his personal money philosophy and encourages the audience to look at their own financial situation on a case-by-case basis.
