Risk Profile

 

Why assess our client's attitude to risk?

To select the most appropriate investment strategy for our clients, it is vital that we understand your investment goals and risk tolerance.

Your risk tolerance is a measure of both your emothial and rational repsonses to changes in the value of your investments, i.e., your ability to withstand losses. It is usually linked to your temperament, the time frame of the investments and your financial circumstances.

 

Why use a risk questionnaire?

Risk questionnaires are a recognised way of assessing risk tolerance.

To help us assess your tolerance of risk, we use a risk question developed by Oxford Risk Research and Analysis. They use a set of questions to assess someone's tolerance to risk.
