Portfolio Diversification Last quarter, we highlighted multiple asset sectors that we can utilize in portfolio construction to enhance investors' diversification. As portfolio construction continues to evolve, other factors are being explored and employed in creating an efficient portfolio. An investment's structure should play a critical role in determining the suitability and best interest; one structure might be more beneficial based on underlying securities, access, or fees. Liquidity can also play a significant component when reviewing investment opportunities; illiquid investments often generate a return premium over their liquid counterparts and generally have a higher probability outcome.
