Alexander Forbes Financial Services has unveiled a free guide on investment diversification for pension scheme trustees and employers.
The guide includes an explanation of how diversification works with accompanying illustrations showing the function of diversified growth, as well as the benefits of diversifying funds in a turbulent market.
An implementation guide for SMEs is also included, plus a list of factors to consider when looking at diversified investing including management fees, relative performance and minimum allocations.
Colin Mouqué, director at Alexander Forbes, says investors can no longer ignore the risks attached to over concentrating their investments in a couple of major asset classes.
“Diversified growth is no longer exclusive to larger schemes and many SMEs may benefit from re-allocating equity funds elsewhere.”
However, Mouqué says there is no substitute for professional advice.
The guide is available from: http://www.alexanderforbesfs.co.uk/ or a hard copy can be ordered by calling: 020 8256 0875.IFAonline
