Asset Diversification

Diversification - or asset allocation - refers to the spread of your capital across different asset classes. According to your objectives and individual risk tolerance, we diversify your assets to optimize your returns.

The following graphic shows you an example of an asset allocation, but it does not represent a current strategy:

Trade-off between risk, liquidity and return

The three main objectives of an investment - the greatest possible degree of security, liquidity and a rate of return – cannot be achieved simultaneously. The investor defines which objective takes priority
in accordance with his or her preferences.

Non-systematic risks can be reduced considerably by diversification (spreading the assets among different asset classes).

Systematic risks, like natural disasters or wars, lie beyond the sphere of influence of the investor. Nevertheless, the portfolio manager steers the client’s portfolio to the best of his knowledge.
