The markets are restless. Can diversification of your investment help you prevent losses?
We interviewed Warren Ingram, Financial Advisor at Galileo Capital.
Some talking points from the interview:
Diversification of asset classes (shares, property, bonds and cash) is very important.
Diversification of geographies and currencies is also important.
You should also diversify over time - if you need to make a big investment (or withdrawal) use a phase-in strategy to reduce the effects of market volatility.
- Diversification of fund managers is trickier. Sometimes different fund managers from different companies actually have the same portfolios.
