Don’t Put All Your Eggs in One Basket

As cliché as it sounds, the principle, “don’t put all your eggs in one basket” makes sense to investing our money in the long-term.

Asset allocation helps us to spread our investments across different asset classes such as investing in a business, investing in propriety, liquid investments such as stocks, high-yield bonds, REITS, dividend funds, and foreign stocks as well as bonds, physical precious metals, jewellery and cash.

Since different asset classes have imperfect correlations, i.e. when some asset classes perform better while others fluctuate, asset allocation can help our overall portfolio to maximize return while minimizing the volatility of our portfolio.

Talk to your financial consultant about asset allocation and once a year, re-balance your holdings of bonds and stocks in your portfolio as market conditions call for different strategies.
