Is your investment portfolio truly diversified?

Is your investment portfolio truly diversified?

Research shows that only 40% of Australians understand the concept of diversification and as many as 40% of Australian investors believe that their portfolio is not diversified.

At the same time, 54% per cent of Australian investors say they are only prepared to take low risk or no risk at all. With diversification, investors can reduce their portfolio risk while maintaining an expected return. And yet the need for diversification, the core concept of the Nobel Prize-winning Modern Portfolio Theory (MPT), is only a top consideration for 30% per cent of Australian investors[1].

The data shows that Australians are unclear on their investments. Without industry-leading data, information, and insights how can they be expected to reach their investment potential?

Australian Fintech member LENSELL® is committed to changing that by providing users with a suite of innovative applications to access novel financial and non-financial corporate performance insights quick, easy and affordable. LENSELL® has taken its applications’ range to another level by launching its new and improved portfolio planning tool – Diversiview®
