It is sometimes said that the greater the risk the greater the potential return or the lower the risk the lower the potential return. It is also said that you should not put all your eggs in one basket. Therefore, if you look to invest your capital into a portfolio of funds that are invested across multiple asset classes run by fund managers with different investment styles. It can help to provide a degree of diversification and balance your investment.  

When you have a balanced portfolio, if some of the assets fall due to market conditions, others could rise an equal amount in compensation, thus helping to further mitigate some of the risks. The value of investments will be linked to the performance of the funds that have been selected.  Therefore, it is important to understand that your capital is at risk.
