Why Global Diversification matters

Please note this blog post was published over 12 months ago and so may not include the most up-to-date information, for example where regulation around investing has changed.

Claudia Thompson explains Global Diversification when investing and why this matters.

When it comes to investing, the two things everyone wants to see are maximised returns and minimised risks. With the very nature of investing, this is impossible to guarantee, as risk is necessary to achieve reward.

However, there are things you can do to help manage your level of risk and likelihood of growth.

One thing to consider is diversification. In a basic sense, this means all of your eggs aren’t in one basket – if one part of your fund underperforms, another part could over perform.

We’ve taken this concept to another level with global diversification. With access to more than 9,000 professionals in 200 locations around the world, our expert in-house team makes the investment decisions for our Fully-Managed Investment Portfolios. This scale of world-class fund managers and partners, the likes of Goldman Sachs, Allianz and UBS for example, has allowed us to create a set of Fully-Managed Investment Portfolios with unique growth opportunities because we have a truly global outlook and network.

Global diversification matters because it could help you to do more with your money. By investing on a global scale, with industry leading expertise, you are giving your investment the chance to maximise your returns, reduce your risk and make your money do more.

With investing, your capital is at risk. Investments can fluctuate in value and you may get back less than you invest. Past performance is not a guide to future performance. Tax rules can change at any time. This blog is not personal financial advice.
