How to make most of your debt portfolio
Although returns from equity can be high, it is not advisable to have all your investments in equity, as the risk is very high. Further, as you grow older and near retirement, you should increase debt component in your portfolio. In such a situation, how do you position your debt portfolio so as to increase gains?
Time your entry and exit: Your gains and losses on your bond portfolio are directly related to the macro-economic interest rates movement. When interest rates rise, bond prices fall and when interest rates fall, bond prices go up. As a result, your gains depend on when you buy and when you sell. It is, therefore, important to time your entry and exit on debt instruments carefully.
Debt investments should be in line with financial goals: Every one has certain financial goals and commitments in life, which can either be short term or long term.
