In the world of investment, there are few things everyone can agree on. You’re either a bull or a bear, a dove or a hawk, for or against.
If there’s one thing investors do know for sure—it’s that bonds and equities can be used in combination to achieve a ‘balanced portfolio’.
At the simplest level, this means building portfolios with some equities for the good times, and bonds for the bad. Typically, in a 60/40 split.
