Asset Class Diversification: Investing's Only "Free Lunch"
Investment classes move in different cycles at different times, depending on their economic strength, market outlook, industry trends, investor sentiment, and multiple other factors.
When one market “zigs” other markets may “zag.” For example, the U.S. stock market may be up, while Japanese stocks may be down. Bond prices may rally while gold and other commodities sell off.
And while there is a chance that concentrating your portfolio into a single stock, sector, or geography will leave you rich and the talk of the neighborhood, more often, such concentration just leaves you vulnerable to more risks and higher volatility.
We believe that spreading your money across a wider range of investments and asset classes is one of the ways investors are able to reduce exposure to market and security risk while still enjoying the returns investing can generate. Moreover, it can help capture the best performing asset classes across markets.
That’s why we’ve made Diversification the foundation of our Core4 framework.
