Assume 6 different investment accounts held by two different spouses. Account types include traditional IRA, rollover IRA, Roth IRA, 403b, and taxable investments. Age range is eleven years- one spouse recently retired. One investor is conservative- the other moderately aggressive and making the investment decisions. Should asset allocation be based on all investment accounts as a unit; or, should individual accounts be allocated based on the status of the account holder? If an allocation computer indicated a 10% international exposure would it be prudent to invest on of the six exclusively in internationals (assuming it equals 10% of the total portfolio?) I am sure this has been asked and answered but any review would be appreciated. Thanks
