Many financial advisors – both the human kind and, more especially, the robo kind – will often rely on computerized portfolio optimization programs to recommend an asset allocation for retirement investors. I’ve mentioned in the past how the fatal flaw in these calculators is their inappropriate use of risk as a factor in these recommendations. This article isn’t about risk. It’s about something else I recently discovered (for the background on this, read “How a Fiduciary Can Assess a Retirement Investor’s GOT,” FiduciaryNews.com, August 5, 2014).
