Investment Portfolios: Benefits of using property in your investment portfolios

As many professionals anticipated, the markets in 2016 have already had a very shaky start, with influences from China. Plunging oil prices have added to the turmoil to create a bear market and world stocks are now at their lowest levels since 2013. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-35362397

So what can you do to protect yourself?

Whether you are talking about your direct cash investments or those within a pension portfolio, you need diversification.  Bringing non-correlated investments in your asset mix can help give you a strong portfolio, because these investments are not directly affected by stock market fluctuations.

Investment Portfolio Property Investments

Property investments and property related investments can be an excellent non-correlated addition to an investment portfolio.  They offer potential for strong long term capital growth and in some cases they can provide regular interest or income too.

If you think about the 5 Pillars of Wealth principle, where your wealth or investments come from at least 5 different sources, if one of the investments falters you still remain stable.

But if you only have two or three pillars to start with and one is volatile, the whole thing will fall over.
