Want to diversify your portfolio with ease?

There is a new trading platform which is as simple to use as online shopping. If you are a self-directed investor, like me, then growing your portfolio balance is important. Diversification has been talked about a lot lately. The saying ‘Don't have all your eggs in the one basket' rings true today as it always has. But what is diversification and how easy is it to achieve? Some say that owning a mix of Australian shares in different sectors is diversified. Others say that does not go far enough and we should be investing in un-correlated assets, like bullion and cryptocurrencies. Then some are also saying we should be investing in overseas shares.

Are all your eggs in the one basket?

The risk of not being diversified.

Investing – when do we start asking the questions?

Left a widow in 2009 I had to jump in at the deep end. We had bought an investment property and had renovated a couple of houses that we flipped with a little success but that was the sum total of my knowledge.  I couldn’t afford to stay a novice.  I consulted financial planners, stock brokers and I started looking through the newspapers and goggling information available locally. I also signed up to attend seminars, forums, industry workshops put on by government agencies, financial planning groups and organizations. I went to free ones and I went to paid ones. I was on a mission to find out as much as possible.
