Getting To Know The Asset Class - Bonds
Aside from stocks, bonds are the next asset class you should know. In fact, the global bond markets are even larger than the stock markets although the gap is closing in. Bonds, deemed as a lower-risk asset, are a form of debt and exhibit markedly different behavior from stocks. As a result, the two are often paired together to construct investment portfolios to achieve greater stability and resilience across different market conditions. Your traditional 60/40 portfolio is founded on this concept.
