Approach to Asset Management
The fundamental principles of asset management are often described as ‘long-term, diversified, and compounded interest.’ For clients with a significant asset base, preserving assets is as crucial as growing them. The value of assets is constantly fluctuating. There’s a proverbial saying, ‘Don’t put all your eggs in one basket,’ emphasizing the importance of diversification and risk mitigation as the first step in asset management. It’s not just about increasing assets; it’s about avoiding diminishing them.
Types of Assets and Risks
Assets come in various forms, including deposits, government bonds, municipal bonds, foreign bonds, corporate bonds, stocks, real estate, and more. Investing in assets involves accompanying risks such as credit risk, exchange rate risk, interest rate risk, liquidity risk, and others. There is no asset without risk. In other words, it’s essential to face and manage risks correctly when dealing with assets.
