Where Should I Look to Improve My Long-Term Returns?


Diversifiers offer a number of potential benefits, including lower correlations and higher risk-adjusted returns. For instance, investors who allocate 20% of their portfolios to diversifiers have the potential to not only lower the volatility of the overall portfolio, but also may increase the possible return of the portfolio over time.

As the chart shows, a traditional portfolio plus diversifiers historically has offered higher returns and lower risk than a model portfolio that doesn’t include diversifiers, based on historical 10-year median returns through December 2014.

Historically speaking, a range of asset classes have delivered more attractive long-term returns than US large-cap equities. We believe lower correlation and volatility can work in tandem to provide diversification and risk management.
