The essence of investing is to generate return and manage risk. In the absence of arbitrage opportunities, return generation is about gaining exposure to risks that are well rewarded.

However, our ability to efficiently manage exposure is compromised by how we perceive the investment problem. This paper highlights four pitfalls in how we build portfolios and discusses how they can be remedied.
