Investing is not easy by itself. To make things worse, markets often throw us a curveball when we least expect it. Over the recent decade, we have already witnessed a global pandemic and we have also been afflicted by inflation. This can lead to drastic corrections in our investment portfolio. The only defense we have is to ensure our portfolio is well-diversified and not concentrated in a single asset class. Alternative asset classes are also increasingly becoming an important tool when traditional assets correlate to the downside.
