In addition to income, investors own bonds to provide stability in a well-diversified portfolio. Martha Post, chief operating officer at Team Hewins, recommends that investors develop a long-term asset allocation plan that fits their return requirements and risk tolerance and stick with it. Post acknowledges investors' worries about reduced income from bonds. She assuages these fears by reminding investors that when interest rates rise, higher-yielding bonds can replace those with lower coupons. She also suggests that modest exposure to high-yield and emerging-market bonds can increase income, albeit with added risk. Ultimately, investing is a long-term endeavor that requires patience – and short-term decisions may not benefit long-term investors.
