What is diversification?

Diversification means making multiple investments so your portfolio is not tied to a single asset class, industry, company, or region. When you diversify, you are ensuring that your investments are not subject to the exact same risks, and are less likely to suffer the same losses.

Diversification is often described with the old adage, “Don’t put all your eggs in one basket.”
