Diversification is not a new concept and in general, a well-diversified portfolio combined with an investment horizon of three to five years can weather most tricky times. Spreading your wealth in part in Equities and investing in securities that track various indexes usually make good long-term diversification investments for your portfolio. By adding some fixed-income solutions, you are further hedging your portfolio against market volatility and uncertainty.  Some say it pays to be more of a lazy investor if you invest money on a regular basis it helps smooth out the peaks and valleys created by market volatility. But just because you have your investments on autopilot does not mean you should ignore the forces at work its good to remain in tune with overall market conditions.

But it also pays to take a long-term view of the markets, time and time again it has been shown that investing with a long-term yields greater returns. There can be times, when sharp market drops alert investors to risks in their portfolios. This is usually not the best time to make changes but Enable’s IFA’s can talk you through your options if you are worried.
