​Portfolio construction and risk management

Portfolio diversification

Key to investing ​is managing risk. The easiest way to do this is by diversifying a portfolio. It is important to realise that you should not only diversify across different companies, but also across asset classes (stocks, property and debt) and geographies (which adds currency diversification).

Investment strategies

When constructing a portfolio, people often stick with a single stock, which means their investment is very undiversified. You can manage this by starting with an exchange-traded fund (ETF), therefore starting with a basket of diverse shares.​​​
