Asset Allocation is an investment strategy that looks to balance risk and reward by dividing investment portfolios amongst other asset categories
Understanding Your Asset Value
There are typically two stages to total asset value; accumulation and decumulation.
Accumulation is pre-retirement whilst you save towards the end of employment, decumulation happens after when you begin living off pensions, investments and other assets.
Notice that the value of non-liquid assets, or property, drops at age 56 (due to the sale of the second property), but continues to grow throughout life as you would expect property prices to increase over 58 years. Investments also increase in value whilst not being utilised between ages 70 and 85 thanks to investment returns.
