Balanced Portfolio(redirected from Balanced Portfolios)
A portfolio with money invested equally or almost equally in high-risk and low-risk securities. This allows the investor to take some advantage of market upswings while not losing everything in a downturn. It requires less day-to-day management than an aggressive investment strategy, but more than a defensive one. For example, balanced investors are more likely to buy a certain speculative investment while putting an equal amount of money into Treasury notes.
