Many financial advisors are familiar with the “periodic table” of asset class performance like the image below, which is a popular tool for illustrating the importance of diversification to clients.
Borrowing from chemistry, it shows calendar years from left to right, with individual asset classes lined up under each year in descending order of their performance. The main point is to show that any asset class can vary widely from one year to the next, going from a top performer to one of the worst. Thus, portfolio diversification it is best.
To help financial advisors visualize the impact of asset class and time diversification, Blueprint Investment Partners has taken the “periodic table” takes the concept a step further by adding:
- A buy-and-hold diversified portfolio to show the impact of asset class diversification
- A trend-followed diversified portfolio to illustrate the effect of asset class diversification and time diversification
