To become a successful investor, it’s said that you need to build a diversified portfolio.
This advice has been shared by every accountant, financial advisor, grandfather with a portfolio, and beyond. You could own just one stock, but owning multiple assets among multiple asset classes helps significantly lower risk and increase potential returns.
Diversification is why many people invest in startups on Republic. Adding an alternative asset class is a great way to diversify beyond stocks, bonds, and funds.
At the same time, you don’t just want to invest in one startup, and building a diversified startup portfolio with multiple startups takes a time commitment that some investors just don’t have.
That's why we created Autopilot.
