Either your portfolio is worth millions (at least 4 or 5 million) or you are very young and can afford to lose when the market crashes.

I'm not very young and don't have 4 or 5 million. I can't afford to lose in a big market crash. Do you think it is unwise for me to hold bonds in funds such as Wellington and Wellesley Income?

Just wondering....



Not a bit for all the reasons you mentioned.

The need to take risk, capacity to take risk and risk tolerance are three different things.
