Do you understand what diversification does for your portfolio?

Research shows that most people don’t. A University of Colorado Boulder study found that 90% of people who took a survey on diversification answered at least half of the questions incorrectly.

We want to give you an opportunity to show what you know, so we created the quiz below. Once you take it, we’ll show you how you’ve done compared to other people.

Don’t feel bad if you don’t get a perfect score; the concept of diversification is confusing, and most people get at least one or two questions wrong. While people generally know diversification is a good thing, they’re often not sure exactly how or why.
