Came across this interesting blog post on Financial Samurai. The author discusses investment risk and portfolio allocation. While I'm not a member of the FIRE (Financial Independence and Retire Early) movement, the article was still worth a read. I found the charts comparing the average annual returns for various hypothetical portfolios particularly interesting. I was surprised to see that the average annual return for an 80% stock 20% bond portfolio underperformed an all stock portfolio by less than 1% per year over the past 100 years.
