Creating an Investment Portfolio
You’ve identified your goals and done some basic research. But how do you actually go about creating an investment portfolio? What specific investments are right for you? What resources are out there to help you with investment decisions? As there are always a lot of questions when you are entering the investment arena, the best advice is to obtain the services of a Investment Planner who can sit down with you and explain everything in full detail so you know exactly how everything works and what possible risks there are.
It is an almost universally accepted concept that any portfolio should include a mix of investments. A portfolio should also be balanced. That is, the portfolio should contain investments with varying levels of risk to help minimize exposure, should one of the portfolio holdings decline significantly. Many investors make the mistake of putting all their eggs in one basket. Spreading your investment over several asset classes should help reduce your risk of losing your entire investment.
