Q: How do you manage unforeseen risk?
A: Well, one of the beautiful benefits of diversification is as risk managers, you’re not going to get everything right and the diversification benefits help minimize the volatility in the portfolios. So as long as you’re sourcing investment opportunities across multiple asset classes and sectors, you have a much better opportunity to deliver those superior returns during those difficult time periods when you might see unforeseen risk, such as we had with the election more recently in the United States.
