Aggressive vs Conservative: Diversifying your Investment Portfolio

In this episode of Blue Collar Wealth presented by Stone House®, join Bob Brown, CFP® and Larry Alderson, CFP®, as they talk about how to balance aggressive and conservative investment strategies and the importance of diversifying your portfolio.

Let’s address the common misconception that being conservative with investments is always safe. While conservatism can prevent immediate losses, it can also lead to significant purchasing power erosion over time, especially during periods of sustained inflation.

There are also pitfalls of being overly aggressive with investments, such as concentrating wealth in a single stock. This strategy can lead to devastating losses if the company faces hard times. For example, during the 2008 financial crisis, many individuals suffered substantial financial harm due to over-reliance on bank stocks.

A portfolio should not be entirely conservative or aggressive but should aim for a balanced approach to mitigate various risks.

At Stone House, we specialize in helping our clients build financial security and that priceless peace of mind that allows for greater happiness in retirement. Request an appointment with a Stone House Advisor to get started.

We’ll be back next Wednesday with a new episode, so stay tuned.
