Diversification

Portfolio

 strategy designed to reduce exposure to 

Risk

 by combining a variety of investments, such as stocks, bonds, and 

Real

 estate, which are unlikely to all move in the same direction. The goal of 

Diversification

 is to reduce the 

Risk

 in a portfolio. 

Volatility

 is limited by the fact that not all 

Asset

 classes or industries or individual companies move up and down in value at the same time or at the same rate. 

Diversification

 reduces both the upside and downside potential and allows for more consistent 

Performance

 under a wide 

Range

 of 

Economic

 conditions.
