Risk and return are related to the extent that it is not possible to achieve a higher investment return without taking more investment risk (also referred to as volatility). Many investors are guided by their “risk appetite” – that is, how much investment risk/volatility they are prepared to tolerate.
But taking too little investment volatility is risky in itself – the danger being that your assets will not grow enough to meet your investment goals. A trade-off is necessary to achieve a balance between taking enough risk to achieve your goals, while not being reckless: the timeless ‘risk vs reward’ scenario.
How soon might you need to withdraw money from your investments? The longer an investor holds onto a portfolio, the lower the chance of obtaining poor cumulative return is likely to be.
What is your aversion or attraction to risk when risk is defined as “the possibility of loss”?
Generally speaking, the more assets an investor has in reserve, generally the higher their capacity for risk.
How much can you save? In the same way that greater wealth enables a greater appetite for risk, so too does being able to put more aside regularly.
How good is your understanding of the investment you are making and how it behaves over time?
