Does the UK stock market offer enough diversification for your portfolio?

For those looking at building up their own portfolio of shares and other investments it has never been more vital to have a worldwide exposure rather than concentrating on one sector or one country. Investment is all about reducing the risks and diversifying although some people may tell you otherwise!

If you are looking for a quick buck with limited risk then you will be looking for a long time, if you are looking for a short term profit and willing to take a risk then why not try the bookies. There are many different investment strategies which you can take but the long term winners are the people who have exposure to all relevant parts of the worldwide investment arena. Putting all of your eggs in one basket is great when your shares are doing well, but what happens when the sector takes a hit?

The last technology boom saw many people make millions of pounds but guess what, most of these investors thought that the boom would go on forever and kept putting their money back in. When the eventual fall came many were literally wiped out despite being substantially up at one stage.
