- Know your client: Ask about risk aversion and financial goals. The portfolio diversification should be based on the risk aversion and financial goals of a client.
- Know your funds: select the best suited funds for your client based on their risk/return profile. Managing cost of the funds, tax status can play an important role in the diversification.
- Spread your investments: Do not put all of your money into one security. Research different options (mutual funds, stocks, trusts and equities), and spread your wealth evenly.
- Take index and bond funds into consideration: Adding index and fixed-income funds to the portfolio can bring some wonderful long-term diversification to it, as they’re hedging your portfolio against volatility and uncertainty of the market.
