if you are already using python piecash is a good place to start
I know he used to have a ledger-cli export but I can't find it right
now, probably my fault for looking too quickly.
I don't actually export all of my gnc to ledger for asset allocation, I
just create tx like this
2018-02-03 Buy Fund1
Assets:Broker 1000000 "Fund1" @ 100.00
2018-02-03 Buy Bond2
Assets:Broker 9999999 "Bond2" @ 50.00
using the investment portfolio report as my source.
If I was doing asset allocation monthly or weekly I'd automate it a bit
more using piecash or some handwritten sql

piecash should save you a step
P.S. I've just noticed MisterY already knows about piecash, silly me :)
