Investment bonds have been the cornerstone of any diversified investment portfolio for hundreds of years. They provide a solid foundation for all other forms of investment. Statistical evidence suggests the best performing balanced portfolios hold at least 30-40% of total assets in fixed income investments.
The rule of thumb for asset allocation is to take your age as a percentage to be invested in fixed income. Particularly important as you near retirement and no longer have time to earn back losses. As an example, if you’re 60 years old, 60% must be fixed income and the remaining 40% can be in risky assets.
