Understanding Investment Risk & Portfolio Construction

This guide has been produced to enable you to make informed decisions about your investment portfolio.

Whoever said ‘what you don’t know can’t hurt you’ was mistaken when it comes to investing. What you don’t know can hurt you, and it often will. You cannot eliminate risk when you invest, but you can understand it and take steps to maintain it at an acceptable level for you.

Despite the financial community’s search for tools to explain investment risk, the complexity of risk remains a daunting obstacle. There is no single investment approach or mathematical formula that will provide a comprehensive and guaranteed result. The best course of action is to assess your risk tolerance based upon your financial condition, investment goals, timeframes and comfort levels.

There is a balance between risk and reward. Investing too conservatively to achieve your goals can be just as damaging as investing too aggressively.
