What are the benefits of investing in these mutual funds: should you invest?
Investing in a variety of asset types can help reduce risk. This means that the high volatility of an asset class like stocks is offset by exposure to debt and gold.
These funds provide a pre-designed diversified investment portfolio that is managed by a fund manager, eliminating your need to track day-to-day market fluctuations.
The importance of diversifying one’s portfolio across asset classes such as stocks, bonds, gold and other assets cannot be overstated, and the case for doing so has already been made.
Returns for a variety of asset classes, including domestic equities, international equities, gold and, to a lesser extent, debt, vary significantly from year to year. Some years stock returns can be fantastic, but others can be negative.
Multi-asset funds can provide a well-balanced investment portfolio by generating potential rewards while reducing risk exposure.
