eFront article 'The role of timberland in a portfolio'

From the article:
"Most vernaculars, from English to Chinese, have an equivalent to the phrase ‘do not put all your eggs in one basket’. The heuristic of having too many baskets, or the right kind of baskets, is less obvious. Perhaps that’s why the risks of over-diversification have been slower to gain acceptance."
