Risk Versus Reward

How much money are you prepared to lose?

A strange question when you want to make money.

Getting top returns means accepting some risk.  You need to know how much you’re willing to lose in the pursuit of gain.

We use a scientific approach.  We’ll ask you some questions.  Then we’ll calculate your Risk Score on a scale of 1 to 10.

1 means ‘extremely cautious’ - most of your money should be invested in Cash. 10 means ‘highly adventurous’ - equity would be your best choice. 

If you’re in between, you need a wider spread.


You may not be a ‘risky’ person, but you might be holding ‘risky’ products. For example, you could be in a managed fund and have no clue the manager may be looking to invest your money in shares riskier than you’d like.
