In the third quarter, investors across the globe appeared to have lost some appetite for risk, even though the underlying fundamentals remained relatively unchanged. Assets across the board, from stocks to high yield bonds, MLPs to commodities, domestic and overseas, all experienced declines. Suffice it to say, with multiple challenges existing in the world, diversification is still the word of the day, and we remain focused on diversification and the long-term objectives of our portfolios.
