Building a well-diversified investment portfolio does not require a dozen assets. To the contrary, adding assets with poor or unstable performance history, like commodities or emerging market assets, only increases fees and trading costs, adding another barrier to accessing markets. We believe things can be done simpler and more effective.
Stocks, bonds & cash
= your top-of-mind portfolio
Holding wealth in a savings account means lending money to your bank. The interest rates received will depend on the quality of your bank and central bank policy rates. From an investment perspective this is the worst investment since you are not collecting any premium from capital markets. However, when combined with sovereign bonds and equities it allows you to control the maximum amount of risk you want to take for your investment.
- Your compensation: usually close to zero after inflation
- Your daily risk: no daily fluctuations but uncertainty about reinvestment possibilities
- Can you lose all: usually your deposits are protected up to a certain limit
- Exchange rate risk: no, you are holding cash in your home currency
