Eureka Correspondence

Protecting equity losses, LICs, and housing bubble trouble.

After many years of managing my own share portfolio, I am constantly frustrated at the complexities involved in trying to protect an asset I own from significant corrections. It seems so easy for me to pay a premium to insure a $1 million home or car, but not so for another asset such as a share portfolio. Am I missing something or is there some product other than contracts for difference (CFDs) or options that will offer me this insurance? I am truly desperate for a relatively simple solution to this for me. I find that options are complex and very expensive, and CFDs have their own pitfalls apart from the capital they require. Hoping you can shed some light.
