Benefits of investing in the MLC MasterKey Unit Trust

Diversify to reduce volatility and other risks

  • Diversification - investing in a range of investments - is a sound way to reduce the short-term volatility of a portfolio's returns. That's because different types of investments perform well in different times and circumstances. When some are providing good returns, others may not be.
  • Portfolios can be diversified across different asset classes, industries, securities and countries, as well as across investment managers with different approaches.
  • The more you diversify, the less impact any one investment can have on your overall returns.
  • One of the most effective ways of reducing volatility is to diversify across a range of asset classes.
  • Diversification across asset classes is just one way of managing risk. MLC's multi-asset portfolios diversify across asset classes and investment managers. Please refer to the 'Our approach to investing' in the 'Investing in MLC investment options' section of the PDS for more information.
