An equal equity and debt portfolio can provide best returns

An equal weight equity and debt portfolio returned 12.2 percent between 1990 and 2023 according to a study by Motilal Oswal. In contrast a portfolio with 75 percent equity and 25 percent debt returned 12.9 percent during the same period while 75 percent debt and 25 percent equity saw a 10.6 percent return. According to Motilal Oswal, an equal weighted portfolio works best for investors with a moderate risk profile and has a low probability of negative returns. (Economic Times)
