Reducing Risk by Diversifying
Don't put all your eggs in one basket. Put them in thousands of baskets! Why? Because history has shown that diversification has had a tendency to reduce the overall risk of a portfolio.
Streetwise Portfolios™ create portfolios of whole market indexes rather than picking and choosing stocks and bonds – you can't get more diversified than that. Most mutual funds don't come close to our level of diversification because their managers are picking and choosing within a specific industry, country or investment type– that's less diversified, not more.

Buying the markets is a streetwise decision. Trying to outsmart, outguess, and out-gamble the markets is not. That's why the diversification that Streetwise Portfolios create within each portfolio is so important. Having your investment spread across different Indexes gives you exposure to thousands of stocks and bonds.
Each Streetwise Portfolio uses different asset allocations to match your investor profile.
Streetwise Portfolios reduce your risk by investing in many different securities:
Stocks and bonds
Streetwise Portfolios invest in different securities and will include a mix of stocks and/or bonds tailored to your investment goals and appetite for risk.
North, south, east and west
Streetwise Portfolios are diversified across many geographies - Canada, USA, Europe, Australia and the Far East. Being diversified in more than one place can mean better protection from volatility in a single country or foreign currency.
Comfort in numbers
Streetwise Portfolios create investments consisting of the leading companies in many markets. By holding over 1,000 different securities, your investment can be better protected against bad news at a single company or a single industry.
