Diversification

 

portfolio strategy designed to reduce exposure to risk by combining a variety of investments, such asstocksbonds, and real estate, which are unlikely to all move in the same direction. The goal of diversification is to reduce the risk in a portfolio. Volatility is limited by the fact that not all asset classes orindustries or individual companies move up and down in value at the same time or at the same rate. Diversification reduces both the upside and downside potential and allows for more consistent performanceunder a wide range of economic conditions.
