The smart use of Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) can achieve the goal of reducing portfolio volatility risk.

ETFs Easily Reduce Company Specific Risks

Buying exchange-traded funds substantially reduces company specific risks as you are buying a basket of companies, and an adverse even effecting 1 company does not materially affect your investment basket. Examples of company specific risks that can pummel single stock prices are fraud, bankruptcy, adverse litigation, earnings misses, and natural disasters.

ETFs Can Offer Diversification Across Economic Regions and Geographic Risk
The US market is only 1 of 6 major global economic regions in the world. The European Monetary Union, Japan, Far East, Americas, and UK represent 5 other major economic regions that exist in the world. Exchange-traded funds offer a variety of economic region funds that can give instant global diversification.

ETFs Offer Diversification of Currency Risk

Any changes in the USD, Yen, Pound or Euro can have dramatic effects on a portfolio once exchange gains and losses are factored back into your home currency. Maintaining a portfolio that is diversified across the 4 major global currencies can reduce your portfolio currency risk. ETFs offer a range of currency and regional funds that can offer this diversification.

ETFs Offer Easy Diversification of Correlation and Investment Style Risk

The average American portfolio tends to have a high concentration of investment style risk that is highly correlated to large cap style investing and the S&P500 index. Without adequate diversification into other types of asset classes, currencies, or regions, when the S&P500 market tanks, so do most average American portfolios. The use of ETFs can help to dramatically
lower correlation risks.
