Invest in lower-risk stocks, such as companies with strong financial health and less volatility than their peers.
Prudent Investing in Turbulent Times
Current volatility in global stock and bond markets may compel some investors to take caution, while others might see an opportunity to buy or rebalance their portfolios to try to optimize returns. In either case, we suggest that investors maintain a long-term perspective and consider ways to mitigate overall portfolio risk.
Risk Mitigating Strategies
Our research, spanning two decades, has been a study of the many types of risk, their impact on a portfolio, and the controls that can be put in place to moderate these risks during times of market stress. Below, we propose a few options for mitigating portfolio risk across various asset classes.
Derive returns from a breadth of holdings rather than from an overweight to credit, which can be highly correlated to equity markets.
Implement strategies that can enhance portfolio diversification, provide additional sources of return, and help mitigate losses.
There can be no assurance that any investment strategy will be successful.
