Jan. 31, 2011 - PRLog -- Seattle, WA, January 31, 2011 - Portfolio Research today released the company's Risk Report for the period ending December 31, 2010. The report showed that though aggregate investment risk has dropped below historical levels, diversification has become more difficult as equities, REITs and commodities have remained highly correlated.  Bond correlations to other asset classes have shifted dramatically.

"Investors should avoid being lulled into complacency by the sudden drop in risk and the consistent rise in equity prices in the 4th quarter," said Jay Johannesen, Investment Strategist at Portfolio Research, "Risk would be expected to drop in such a strong equity market environment, but correlation, valuation and other factors suggest caution."

The Report highlighted the dramatic shift in correlation between bonds and risky assets from very negative to near zero as the accommodative US Federal Reserve policy of quantitative easing flooded markets with liquidity.
