Expert Retirement and Financial Advisor Mark Kinney Says Cultivating a Diverse Investment Portfolio Minimizes Risk
Seasoned retirement and financial strategist Mark Kinney discusses the importance of spreading your investment capital among different markets as a strategy for minimizing losses and maximizing returns.
Lee, Massachusetts—April 1, 2016—Founding partner of Toole, Kinney & Company, Inc., Mark Kinney, CFP®, posted a new blog entry entitled, “The Importance of Cultivating a Diverse Investment Portfolio for Your Retirement Plan.” In the post, he offers an investment scenario to illustrate the pitfalls of an undiversified investment portfolio.
Kinney says, “To illustrate, consider this scenario: John heard from a friend that now is the time to invest in real estate. Low costs. Big returns. So John decides to pour all of his available investment capital into the local real estate market with the notion that his profits will set him up for retirement. For sometime his scheme goes well, but some months into the endeavor, the market goes south, and quickly. John can’t sell his property because no one’s buying. He’s left with devalued properties, and not liquid assets, and bleak prospects for his retirement fund.”
