The indexes reveal a marked and near ubiquitous decline in diversification potential across asset classes and markets for the post-2000 period.Analysis of panel data suggests that the decline is related to higher levels of market credit risk and volatility as well as to technology and communications innovation as proxied by internet diffusion. The decline in diversification opportunity is associated with sharply higher levels of investment risk.||Funding Details:||Science Foundation Ireland||Type of material:||Working Paper||Publisher:||University College Dublin.
