Under diversification, I'd suggest calculating the standard deviation of your portfolio (to determine the amount of risk associated with your portfolio),estimating the expected return and cthen calculating the risk/return ratio. You could repeat for different allocations of asset classes until you find a risk level and return that meets your needs.

I would like to add, there is a second variable to the above statement, that is the age of the investor and the number of active invstment years left, before the retirement.
