real return of 4% with a diversified portfolio

When you say real return, I assume that is 4% + inflation rate. Am I correct? If not, don't you think 4% return is cutting too close?

If your risk tolerance is only 5% at the portfolio level, can you achieve say 7 to 8% return? I would like to discount superior stock picking skills, and rely mostly on asset allocation.
