Investment savings, saving for the future and retirement are all financial goals that one might set. The ‘do-it-yourself’ approach to your financial goals can seem like a truly appealing option to some investors who buy a handful of dividend-paying stocks and receive the income from these. It is prudent however to remember the importance of diversification. Looking into different types of fund choice, different sector opportunities, and maintaining a balanced approach can help you to create a more diverse financial plan. Seeking professional financial advice could help you to continue to diversify in a way that is right for you.
