Beyond Eggs In One Basket : The need for diversification

  • Reading time:5 mins read

When you invest your money, it's like taking care of a garden. You don't want to put all your plants in one spot because if something bad happens, like a big storm or bugs, you could lose everything. It's the same with money. Imagine if you put all your money into just one type of thing, like airline stocks. Then, something bad happens in the airline industry, like a big problem with pilots. Your money could take a big hit. But if you spread your money out and also invested in something like railway stocks, you'd be safer. Even if the airline stocks went down, the railway stocks could help balance things out. But it's not just about different kinds of stocks. You also want to think about other ways to invest your money, like bonds or real estate. That way, if one type of investment isn't doing well, the others can help keep your money safe. Some experts say it's good to have around 20 to 30 different investments, like different plants in your garden. But if that sounds like a lot to manage, you can also invest in something called mutual funds. These are like big pots where lots of different people put their money together, and then someone else takes care of spreading it out for you.
