Overconcentration is risky because it can expose companies and individuals to significant losses if the value of the asset class, industry, or geographic location in which they are invested declines. For example, if a company invests all of its money in technology stocks and the technology sector experiences a downturn, the company could lose a significant amount of money. Similarly, if an individual invests all of their money in real estate in a particular city and the real estate market in that city declines, the individual could lose a significant amount of money.
