English term or phrase: use multiples of five
Anchoring is a tendency of investors to rely heavily on any initial piece of information when making subsequent decisions.
 People are more prone to anchoring when they are unfamiliar with what the right answer is.
 For example, investors tend to invest in stocks of companies that have fallen considerably in a very short amount of time – i.e. anchoring on a recent high and expecting the stock to recover in due course.
 In the context of pensions and savings, employees often use maximum allowable rates to decide the percentage to contribute in a savings plan. Individuals also tend to ***use multiples of five when constructing portfolios***.

German translation:in Fünf-Prozent-Schritten vorgehen
Explanation:
z.B. würde ein Mensch eher 10% seines Budgets in Aktie X und 15% in Aktie Y stecken als 9% in X und 16% in Y, weil rundere Zahlen netter aussehen als krummere. Intuitiv finde ich das plausibel.
