Classic 60-40

The Classic 60-40 portfolio is the ubiquitous asset allocation that serves as the benchmark in most portfolio discussions.  Based on the groundbreaking work of Harry Markowitz and popularized by none other than Jack Bogle, the Classic 60-40 portfolio has long been a staple of passive investors.  Other versions vary percentages by age and slice and dice the assets different ways, but this is a great place to start.
