If an investor makes a concentrated bet, he thinks he knows something that the market doesn’t. If an investor diversifies, he admits he doesn’t know what comes next. We are the latter, and the data constantly reminds us to be humble. Here is an image showing the developed markets’ ranking and respective returns over the last twenty years. Would we have predicted Denmark as the standout market or Ireland in the last position? And who will it be twenty years from now? Guess what? As you know, when you own global capitalism, you’re the winner, and guessing isn’t required to succeed.

Past performance is no guarantee of future results. Indices are not available for direct investment; therefore, their performance does not reflect the expenses associated with the management of an actual portfolio. Diversification neither assures a profit nor guarantees against loss in a declining market.
