Successful investing in the long term essentially means maximizing returns given your risk appetite. Markets can be volatile at times and the best performing asset class, market and sector rotates. As such, it is important to diversify your assets in a well-constructed portfolio which could help you to achieve your investment goal. Many investors tend to ignore the importance of investing holistically on several different types of investments that complement each other well. They tend to invest in individual products as long as they find the returns and risks reasonable.
Our view is that it is important to diversify and invest into different investments and asset classes. For instance, bonds tend to have low or negative correlation with equities, which means that adding bonds to an all equity portfolio will help to reduce risk and possibly improve the risk-return ratio of the portfolio.
