Financial Markets (ECON 252)

Portfolio diversification is the most fundamental concept of risk management. The allocation of financial resources in stocks, bonds, riskless, assets, oil and other assets determine the expected return and risk of a portfolio.

An important mission of financial institutions is to provide portfolio-diversification services.
