Laddered and Barbell Portfolio

A laddered portfolio has more reinvestment risk in any single year compared to barbell portfolio. False.

Can someone explain how.?

Because unlike in a laddered where you have equal exposure to short, medium and longer term bonds, in a barbell you have a heavier exposure to longer term bonds. This heavy exposure to a 30 year bond (example) makes you more susceptible to reinvestment risk since there would be multiple phases your economy would go through, which would have a material impact on the yields of such bonds, since these bonds would mature only after 30 years. Hence, the higher reinvestment risk.

Okay got it now.
In a laddered portfolio since there are multiple cash flows it can be reinvested at different times and the reinvestment risk kind of offsets each other.
But in a barbell portfolio that is obviously not the case.
