Business owners often have the vast majority of their wealth dedicated to the companies they have built their professional lives around. Successful companies come from a labor of love and unique devotion to growing personal wealth through hard work and a commitment to success.

Business owners also realize that their personal wealth and retirement dreams are tied directly to the success of their largest asset.  Economic, political, and health risks can threaten the company’s continued success and profitability and could severely impact the owner’s financial future.  One common strategy used by business owners to diversify risk and ensure their financial outlook is to offer either all or a portion of their company to a private equity partner.

Diversification is a risk-reduction strategy that spreads investments over various financial instruments, and industries. It aims to optimize profits and reduce risk by investing in many sectors that will react differently to the same occurrence.

Bridge Capital Associates, Inc. is uniquely experienced in bringing together business owners, investment bankers, and private equity firms and facilitating transactions to diversify holdings and reduce owner risk.  Let’s discuss the concept and how our team can support business owners during the endeavor.

When You Diversify Your Assets, What Takes Place?

Diversification can aid in risk management and decrease the volatility of an asset’s price changes. Remember, uncertainty can never be avoided no matter how well diversified your portfolio is, but diversification can help.

To stabilize your returns over time, diversify your investments to limit your risk exposure. Although some risks, such as systemic hazards, cannot be avoided, you can hedge against unsystematic risks such as commercial or financial risks.

You may lower the risk associated with highly concentrated assets, but market hazards influence almost all investments, so diversification across investment vehicles is crucial. Finding a happy medium between risk and payoff is the key.

What Do We Foresee for The Rest of 2022?

Geopolitical uncertainty and unrest combined with greater market volatility and increasing inflation mean that diversification will be key. Spreading your investments over multiple opportunities and sectors can help to lower your risk during this time of uncertainty.
