The world is constantly evolving - Your Investments should evolve too. The manner in which investors achieve diversification has changed over the past 20 years, and will continue to change into the future. Diversification today is not as simple as in years past where a portfolio was considered diversified by simply investing in a mix of industries, regions or asset classes. In today's world, being properly diversified has taken on new meaning and is even more vital given globally integrated economies and close linkages across capital markets.
Diversification in today's markets means having exposure to opportunities in fast-growing emerging markets, investing in both large and small companies, incorporating different investment styles and strategies, and holding a broader range of fixed income investments.

Do you know the asset allocation of your portfolio? Poor diversification could diminish your portfolio's risk-adjusted return. Diversifying across multiple markets and asset classes historically has provided a better risk-adjusted return over the long term.
Generally, the level of risk can be gauged by the percentage of your portfolio that is made up of equities (stocks and funds owing stocks) versus fixed income investments (cash and bonds). Are you aware of what your overall portfolio risk is?
