The first priority of a well-structured portfolio, designed for long-term success, is the control of risk and volatility. Important as it is, the actual rate of return achieved in that portfolio should be considered more a by-product of that higher priority objective than the end in itself. If we intellectually understand the logic behind this premise - or accept it as an article of faith - then we are well positioned for making sound investment decisions.
