Over the years many consumers have been concerned about  the risk of investing and how the fear of them actually investing in their financial future was based on uncertainty about how finances really work—and their fear to face and overcome that fear.

In this discussion we will examine risk in great detail so that you can get a concrete understanding of what it is—and how you can reduce risk in your financial future.  


You will now be able to confront the risks that you will face in a manner that you can understand—and apply—to benefit yourself—and your family in a meaningful way!

 

What are common investment styles or investment philosophies?

 

It is important that you understand that there are basically 3 investment styles—however, there are other styles as well—but if you master these 3—you will be in position to assess your style—and use it to move yourself—and your family towards the goals and objectives that you desire.


 

  •      Aggressive
  •      Moderate
  •      Conservative

 

What movie are you watching at the “AMC” theater? 


By memorizing the preceding sentence—you put yourself in position to always know the 3 major investment styles—in an easy manner!


Now that you know the 3 investment styles—let’s explore each style in greater detail—and then go over the various types of risk that you will find in the credit and financial markets that are (or should be) of concern to you and your family. 


We will then conclude by discussing ways that you can reduce the various forms of risk that you may face!

 

Aggressive


An aggressive portfolio would be weighted more heavily towards stocks and would normally include aggressive growth stocks and international and emerging market stocks. 


Many aggressive portfolios would have 70% or more of the portfolio in stocks
—usually suitable for those with long investment horizon—or those who have addressed their finances in a comprehensive manner—and have additional funds to invest aggressively.


Moderate


A Moderate fund would on many occasions consist of 60% stocksand bond and other investments making up the remainder (treasuries, t-bills, money market etcetera).


Conservative


A conservative fund would be weighted at approximately 50% in stocks (or less) and bond and other investments making up the remainder (treasuries, t-bills, money market etcetera).


With all of the investments your goals, risk, income,  and personal situation must be taken into considerationas they will further determine your investment philosophy!


 Other areas of risk that you should be concerned about include the following:


  • Market risk


  • Fraud risk—scammers, ID thieves, swindler’s and the like


  • Inflation risk


  • Exchange rate risk


  • Foreign investment risk


  • Commodity risk


  • Credit risk


  • Currency


  • Interest rate, term modification, pre-payment risk


  • IT risk


  • Legal risk


  • Liquidity risk


  • Reputational


 

Always realize that a certain amount of risk will always be present.


Make sure that you do all that you canon the front endto reduce or minimize the risk that you will face as you improve your credit and finance position!
