- Real Estate and its several diversification
One of the most common asset classes is Real Estate and as simple as it may sound owning a property and earning from it, it is actually very complex if you want to make the most out of it. Instead of owning large properties of one type, say residential or corporate, one can diversify in this too and own some rental property as well as some crowdfunded real estate. Crowdfunded real estate is a new concept in India but is one good option to minimise risk of totally bearing any kind of loss.
- Diversified Stock Portfolio
One needs to understand that owning stocks from only one company or say different companies from the same industry is highly risky as it may bring huge losses in case that company or industry is going through a rough patch. One must own stocks from several industries starting from hardware to pharmaceuticals to automobiles to energy companies. It helps to reduce the risk of losing all your money altogether. One smart way to invest in stocks is to invest in Index funds which is also based on the concept of Diversification. It is like you are investing your money in one of the best performing assets without even doing much research about it. Indexes like the Nifty 500 help you to invest in 500 stocks in 1 go. God bless diversification and indices.

Gold is considered one of the best assets for recession or crisis periods mostly because of its inverse relations with the stock markets.
