5 Tips For Diversifying Your Portfolio

Diversification is a battle cry for many financial planners, fund managers and individual investors.

When the indexes are on their way up, it may seem foolish to be in anything but equities.
But because we can never be sure of what the market will do at any moment, we cannot forget the importance of a well-diversified portfolio in any market condition.
