Our portfolios are deliberately diversified beyond traditional equities and fixed income to minimize the effects of volatility.
A Different Approach to Investment Management
Traditional investment portfolios consist of two asset classes: stocks (equities) and bonds (fixed-income).
In the past, stocks and bonds tended to move in opposite directions. We call this negative correlation. When stocks lost value, bonds typically gained in value, and vice versa; this helped offset losses and protect portfolios.
Increasingly we see stock and bond values move together. We call this positive correlation; which increases volatility and is ultimately bad for a portfolio. The traditional stock/bond portfolio no longer provides the safety and returns it did a generation ago.
