My partner is 11.5 years older than myself. She has saved virtually nothing toward her retirement.

Rather than try to figure out who should take more risk with investments you should first address the issue above. If she has not saved anything then determining investment risk is way down the road after creating a budget, identifying areas for savings, etc.

Not to sound harsh but I've already been down that road. Then I gave her half the money and we said goodbye.
