The Value of Diversification

Last week the S&P 500 and ASX 200 had their worst weekly performances since the global financial crisis (trading off 11.5% and 9.8% respectively), and wiping out gains made this year to date.

Despite this, ECCM’s SGM fund saw positive performance in February, due to exposures including government bonds, currencies and commodities. In our view, having a broad investment universe is key to capital protection and growth over the long run, through the value of diversification and exposure to asset classes that can otherwise be difficult for investors to access.
