The process starts with a high-level outlook drawing on our own strategists, the award-winning1 BofA Merrill Lynch Global Research and outside experts. We translate the outlook into asset allocations for different time horizons and levels of risk. We implement the allocations, or help your advisor do so, by selecting appropriate funds we believe are likely to deliver on their objectives. Then we monitor them to help your advisor make adjustments based on their performance, market trends and your progress toward achieving your goals. In this video, Chief Investment Officer Chris Hyzy describes the value of this kind of process in today’s world.
