Investment mix importance
Investing in companies (the stock market) provides the greatest returns, but also creates the greatest risk and volatility. Having a balance of investments is crucial.
Spreading your portfolio across the world, avoid concentrating too much in a single market reduces risk and can improve returns.
Investing in a highly diverse mix of investments provides a simple and sensible way of reducing risk. Our portfolios own 1000’s of different assets.
A plethora of research shows investing in companies with certain size, value, and profitability metrics can result in higher long-term returns.
Avoid high-cost funds
Simply put, funds with high costs often underperform their lower cost peers. The adage ‘you get what you pay for’ seldom applied to fund management.
