Dear Mr. Smith, As you know over the last 10 years I have been working hard to build up my wealth and my investments. Since I have been able to build an investment portfolio as well as put aside savings I have decided that I am going to take a year off and sail around the world. During this time it will be hard for me to monitor my own finances and I do not wish to worry about them while on my trip. However I want you to run my portfolio as I would if I was still here. I am leaving you some guidelines to follow in my absence. I would like to maintain a moderate growth portfolio since I am still young and am willing to have a slightly higher risk in order to obtain higher returns. I have attached my investment policy statement to this letter. In it I have detailed how I want my assets allocated and what to do in the event of market changes. I know that you will take care of my portfolio in my absence and I will contact you in a year when I return from my travels. Sincerely, Katie Scull I. Personal Characteristics
