“The important thing about an investment philosophy is that you have one you can stick with.”
-David Booth, Founder and Executive Chairman, Dimensional Fund Advisors
There are many factors to consider when deciding to invest in the financial markets. To start, it’s important to think about your personal situation: the years you have left until retirement, and how much risk you’re willing to take with your money.
But it’s also crucial to have a long-term, disciplined strategy in place — and that’s where diversification comes into play. When investing for retirement, a diversified portfolio helps spread your overall risk, keeps you out of the guessing game and can protect your hard-earned savings against market turbulence.
Diversification is an extremely important component of our investment philosophy, which is why we’ve dedicated the next video in our Big Future, Little Steps series to the concept. Watch the video above to learn more about diversification and find out how it can benefit your retirement savings strategy.
