The importance of deep diversification
Thursday, 22nd July 2021 | 12:00pm - 1:00pm AEDT Canberra, Melbourne, Sydney
Deep diversification is critical in building efficient portfolios and giving investors the flexibility to tailor their portfolios to their own risk and return preferences.
Taken individually, each security in a portfolio has an expected return and a risk (volatility of returns). By combining securities in a way that is consistent with the Modern Portfolio Theory, investors can control the total level of risk they are prepared to take, for the return they expect to obtain from the portfolio.
Historically, money managers have employed various methods to introduce a degree of diversification and find “efficient portfolios”, including the ‘60/40 rule’ and the ‘risk parity rule’. Dr Laura Rusu will explain why those methods are not sufficient and will provide practical examples of using deep diversification to find efficient portfolios through analysing several scenarios.
