Alternative ways to invest in Willis Towers Watson Public Limited Company

Buying shares in just one company is generally considered a riskier bet than investing in a range of investments - AKA a "diversified portfolio". Experts generally recommend holding a mix of investments in specific assets and funds. Funds are ready-made portfolios of multiple companies' shares (potentially including Willis Towers Watson Public Limited Company), and the idea is that drops in the value of one constituent company's share price might be offset by rises in others.

Willis Towers Watson Public Limited Company is a major part of the NASDAQ, so it's included in many global funds and investment trusts, as well as tracker-style exchange traded funds (ETFs).
