Kimberly Clouse, Covestor’s Chief Client Advocate and Advisory Board Chair joins Covestor Radio to talk about building your investment portfolio, using a Core and Satellite approach.

Covestor Radio is a show about money milestones and investing for your future and brought to you by Covestor, an online marketplace for investing.


Listen to host Eric Dye & guest Kimberly Clouse discuss the following:

  • Let’s talk about the “Core” portion of a portfolio.
  • How is the “Satellite” different from the “Core”?
  • On a previous episode of Covestor Radio, we discussed the investment concepts of Beta and Alpha. How are Beta and Alpha different than Core and Satellite?
  • What are the benefits of an investor using a Core-Satellite approach?

TIP:  Asset allocation is the mix of assets in a given portfolio and remains the most important decision that an investor makes.   Asset allocation is the greatest determinant of portfolio outcomes.   Time-tested research concludes that asset allocation accounts for over 90% of the variation in returns in a portfolio, with market timing and security selection accounting for the remainder.
