Instrument Allocation

Sector Allocation

Investors will always prefer to have their portfolios divercified against different sectors. The broad sector allocation increases the possibility of making a profit or at least avoiding a loss. However, this may also reduce the expected return on DISVX Mutual Fund. Generally, it depends on diversification level and type but usually, the broader the sector allocation, the less risk can be expected from holding DISVX Mutual Fund, and the less return is expected.
Institutional investors that are interested in enforcing a sector tilt in their portfolio can use exchange-traded funds, such as DFA INTERNATIONAL SMALL Mutual Fund, as a low-cost alternative to building a custom portfolio. So, using sector ETFs to diversify your portfolio can be a profitable strategy. However, no matter what sectors are desirable at a given time, no single industry should ever make up more than 20 percent of your stock portfolio.
