core plus

Definition

A term applied to an investment that, when added to the core assets of a diversified portfolio, can potentially increase the overall return of the portfolio with minimum exposure to risk. For example, a conservative portfolio consisting of government and high quality corporate bonds as the core holdings could absorb the higher risk and higher return potential of some junk bonds without changing the conservative profile of the portfolio.
