“Don’t put all your eggs in one basket.” This popular saying is largely employed in the finance industry to underscore the importance of diversification in portfolio choices: spread your money out over different investments.
In this Open Class we give a primer on modern portfolio theory — a breakthrough in personal and professional investing alike— which suggests that investors can do better by choosing a mix of low-risk and high-risk investments than by going entirely with low-risk opportunities. By investing in more than one asset, an investor reaps the benefits of diversification: most prominently, a reduction in the riskiness of the overall portfolio.
