Diversified Portfolio

Many investors believe a diversified portfolio consists of having money in small, mid-sized and large companies here in the United States and overseas.  That may be the thing to do, but I believe, and would like to have you consider, a diversified portfolio could consist of a certain portion of your money invested in equities, a certain amount in bonds, a certain amount in guaranteed investments, such as CDs, treasuries and savings bonds (EE and I Bonds) and certain energy and real estate programs designed to produce income.  In my opinion, this type of portfolio is much more diversified and balanced.  However, everyone has a different risk tolerance and different need for growth, income and tax benefits.  Our goal is to develop a plan that is right for you.

And that’s my Money Minute.
