A tsunami of social media has been sweeping through spinning out many startup tech companies. The revenue generated by these companies is produced through successful advertising models as well as selling their 'big data'. Many of us remember the dot-com bubble and the Great Recession still haunts most in this country. Both were awful. I cannot count how many times I heard clients, family, and friends say that they would have invested differently.
My point is that investors who have the majority or all of their investments in stocks, bonds, cash, mutual funds, etc. may think they are being conservative, while unknowingly increasing their risks. In addition, if you are an owner of one investment property, when was the last time you seriously considered the acquisition of another for diversification?
- A large investable universe,
- Income returns,
- Lower volatility,
- Diversification, and
- Inflation hedging.
And yes, I recognize the irony of my post being read via social media.
