Investment Guru and editor at Banyan Hill Publishing Ted Bauman, is giving investors some tips to safeguard their portfolios for many years to come. Possessing an impeccable investment portfolio, these days he is focusing much of his attention on low-risk investments and asset protection. In focusing on these types of investment strategies, Bauman believes investors can position themselves to thrive in any market condition, still experiencing relative growth.
When discussing how to create a protective barrier around our investment portfolios, Ted Bauman states that a sure fire way to achieve this is to create a defensive strategy when making sound investment decisions. The fact is evident that some people strike big on risky investments, but in the long term, a good defensive strategy always wins. Investing in asset protection plans are a wise idea for investors positioning themselves to thrive in any market. Bonds are not popular amongst many investors; with their low payout, Ted Bauman understands why. Historically, bonds have always garnered the reputation of being secure investment options for investors looking to benefit from monthly dividends instead of daily stock gains or losses. Some stocks do offer enticing dividend options, but bonds are typically a less risky option for investors as they guarantee a small gain on investment. It is unlikely that bonds will experience excessive drops within a short period of time as some stocks are infamously known to do. In times of volatile market trends, Bond investors remain calm because their guaranteed dividends will pull them through, even the worst of market conditions.
While Investing in bonds are important, Ted Bauman believes that investors should implement some diversity in their portfolios and include investments in both, stocks and bonds. Choosing to invest in stocks grants investors the capability of boosting their portfolio in favorable market conditions; bonds, on the other hand, protect investors portfolio’s, even in the most volatile market conditions. Investing in both gives investors the best of both worlds; positioning them for major gains in favorable market conditions, while weathering the drawbacks of any type of market.
Investing in both stocks and bonds gives investors a great double pronged offensive and defensive approach to investing, sure to thrive in any environment. As important as investments are to investors future financial success, keeping money on hand in a safety deposit box is one way to ensure they will always have on hand cash in times of need, even in a total market crash. Safety Deposit boxes are much safer than a home safe when securing liquid assets. The benefit of a safety deposit box is that it allows investors to lock away their liquid assets so they are out of sight yet still readily accessible when needed. The major drawback of this option is that valuables are not covered by the FDIC. Keeping your own property insurance on valuables placed in safety deposit boxes are essential for fully ensuring the safety of your liquid assets.
Ted Bauman believes that investors using these three strategies to protect their investments are sure to survive any market condition while also safeguarding liquid assets are readily accessible for any unforeseen circumstances. Investors are sure to benefit from these strategies moving into the future.
