Rob Arnott of Research Affiliates released a significant paper today entitled “The Glidepath Illusion.” [1] Glidepath refers to the conventional asset allocation for retirement saving.

This model only has two asset classes: equities and bonds, so the bond allocation rises towards retirement. The rationale for this Glidepath is that bonds are less risky than equities and near-retirees cannot tolerate the equity risk.
