This analogy is renowned in the world of investing. Because investing isn’t just about placing your money into stocks and shares – there are other areas you can invest in.
For most customers, we recommend funds operated by a team of experts who monitor and make decisions on a day-to-day basis. Your money could be spread across a range of assets. This balances the overall risk your money is exposed to with the aim of delivering a smoother level of returns.
There are five to six main asset classes that might form part of your fund, depending on its strategy - cash, global shares, property, corporate bonds, UK shares and Gilts (UK government bonds). There are other assets too which may appear in your portfolio.
The level of exposure to each of these asset classes, as well as the overall diversification, will often depend on your attitude to risk.
