How have the various asset classes, sectors and fixed income investments performed over the past 10 years? Our “quilt charts” show the leaders, the losers and everything in between for each of the past 10 years.

Although diversification does not prevent losses, you may be able to help mitigate losses by diversifying across multiple types of investments.
