Asset class specific options give you the ability to invest solely in an individual asset class or choose your own asset allocation to create a diversified portfolio. Asset class options can also be used in combination with Diversified options. First Guardian has extensive experiences and achievements in investing following types of assets classes:
You should proceed cautiously when investing in asset class options. You should objectively consider your familiarity with the individual asset classes, economic cycles, their impacts (positive and negative) on investment markets and, in particular, the performance of asset classes.
If you choose your own asset allocation, remember that the balance of your asset allocation will change over time depending on the performance of each asset class in which you have invested. If you are using asset class options, you should review your asset allocation at least once a year to ensure it is still consistent with your objectives and to ensure you are sufficiently diversified across asset classes.
You should have properly developed investment objectives and strategy. We recommend you seek financial advice if you need assistance with this.
