Therefore, experts advise diversifying your investment portfolio correctly. For example, to have 60% of shares and 40% of securities, which may give a guaranteed interest income.
Analysts also argue that part of the capital should be in alternative assets, such as gold. This precious metal is a reliable means of protection against various adverse scenarios in the financial markets.
