Happy National Physicians Week to all the members of Charleston County Medical Society! We celebrate you every week, yet during the week of March 25-31, we really want to thank you for all you do!

As a physician, it’s important to prioritize your time wisely. You are extremely busy with the ever-present demand for your attention: spending time with family, to-do lists, patient care, research, and staying current in your field. When does one have the time to prioritize their future and investing in a portfolio?

Since the folks at Huskey Financial are driven to provide education to physicians and small-business owners, we’d like to share a few considerations you can make if you decide to do your investing yourself. 

Diversifying your investment portfolio with multiple asset classes can be an effective way to manage risk and potentially increase returns. Here are some steps you can follow to effectively diversify your portfolio:

  1. Determine your investment goals and risk tolerance: Before investing, it’s important to establish your investment goals and your risk tolerance. Your goals will determine the types of assets you invest in, while your risk tolerance will determine the level of risk you are willing to take.
  2. Identify different asset classes: There are several asset classes you can invest in, such as stocks, bonds, real estate, commodities, and alternative investments. Each asset class has its own risk and return characteristics.
  3. Allocate your assets: Once you’ve identified the asset classes you want to invest in, allocate your assets based on your investment goals and risk tolerance. This means deciding how much of your portfolio you want to invest in each asset class.
  4. Consider diversifying within asset classes: Even within an asset class, you can diversify your investments. For example, within stocks, you can invest in different sectors, such as technology or healthcare.
  5. Rebalance your portfolio: As time passes, your portfolio may become unbalanced due to changes in the value of your assets. Rebalancing your portfolio periodically can help you maintain your desired asset allocation.
  6. Monitor your portfolio: Keep an eye on your portfolio regularly to ensure it continues to align with your investment goals and risk tolerance. If necessary, make adjustments to your portfolio to keep it in line with your objectives.

Remember, diversification does not guarantee profit or protect against loss, but it can help you manage risk and potentially increase returns over the long term.
