Today I’m starting a new series on questions from readers. I’m super excited that I now have questions from readers! If I’m not helping you, then this blog has failed.
Let’s succeed together, starting with this juicy question about bonds.
Right now I’ve got all my long-term investments in low-fee index funds – some large-cap, some mid-cap, some small-cap, some international. Should I own any bonds too? Or rather, do you own any bonds? Like, is there any reason to diversify into that asset class, or are they always just going to be either correlated with stocks (e.g. corporate bonds) or too low-risk-low-reward (e.g. US government bonds)?
