You have probably heard that diversification is a key to investment success. So, you might think that if diversifying your investments is a good idea, it might also be wise to diversify your investment providers – after all, aren't two (or more) heads better than one?

Before we look at that issue, let's consider the first half of the "diversification" question – namely, how does diversifying your investment portfolio help you?
