Portfolio diversification is one of the most effective investment strategies that you should turn to especially if you’re new at investing. However, diversification does not only mean putting different entries into your folder but it also involves carefully balancing and choosing which sectors and specific industries can help you reach long-term financial goals.

Here are the top industries that constitute the most profitable investment portfolios:

Industries under the Technology Sector

Technology companies constitute the most popular sector to invest in, especially with the rise of several new industries that are transforming how people work and live – especially in this booming information age.  Artificial Intelligence, the Internet of Things and even Autonomous Vehicles are part of the new wave of innovative industries that investors should consider for a balanced portfolio. Whether it’s investing in shares of this growing sector such as startups or opting for already established companies, you’ll be on the right track.

Industries under the Health Care Sector

This particular sector plays a vital role in responding to the demands of an aging population through leading innovations and life-saving products and services offered by the different health care industries. From biotechnology, the insurance industry, the pharmaceutical industry, hospital conglomerates, and other healthcare companies, including these investment options in your portfolio is a wise move.

Industries under the Financial Sector

The financial services sector covers a long list of industries that include financial organizations, banks, insurance companies, brokerage firms, credit card companies, and even offshore portfolio management firms like LOM Financial. The financial sector is your best bet if you’re looking at the benefits of long-term investments, especially in the U.S. as the government rolls over regulations that will effectively put financials on top of the best industries to invest in for 2018 and beyond.

The promise of a billion-dollar market in the luxury tourism industry

Luxury travel is no longer just about expensive destinations and staying at the most luxurious hotels in the world. In fact, the recent trends that currently dominate the entire industry make it more diverse than how it was conventionally perceived.

According to statistics, the new face of the global luxury tourism industry shows an increased interest in destinations that offer unique, exclusive, and exotic holiday experiences for travelers. More interestingly, luxury travels are no longer limited to a particular affluent social group. This is because, the popularity of the luxury travel experiences in the social media coupled with the increased spending of the middle as well as an upper middle class have shaped and redefined the whole luxury travel market, fueling market growth that is expected to reach over $1.1 billion by 2022, according to the Allied Market Research report.

What drives the demand for luxury travel? According to the same report, the rising growth of the industry can be attributed to luxury travelers’ high spending power as well as their need for exclusivity. Similar studies and statistics that examined the opportunities and forecast for the luxury tourism industry showed that North American and European travelers contributed 66 percent of the industry’s total revenue. In addition, recent data revealed that the global destinations that topped the most-sought-after luxury travel experience are in Kenya.

Safari adventures, for instance, accounted for an approximately 44 percent of revenue not just in the U.S. but of the overall luxury travel market globally. In fact, this segment is still the most popular among young and middle age vacationers. On the other hand, about 70 percent of millennial travelers prefer culinary-focused travel experience as a top motivation in taking their own luxury trips.

Nevertheless, the likes of Santorini, the Cayman Islands, Maldives, and other “expensive” islands remain to be the top choices amongst affluent travelers, given their reputation and the superiority of hospitality services. Just last year, popular offshore investments center and luxury destination Bermuda has hosted the America’s Cup, a racing competition for sailing yachts that attracts not only the world’s top sailors and yacht designers but also wealthy entrepreneurs and sponsors.
