Risk Tolerance Identification

Risk tolerance is the degree of variability (gain or loss) in an investment return a client is willing to withstand. Understanding your personal tolerance is an important component in investing. We spend time getting to understand our clients’ tolerance levels so that a realistic understanding of the ability and willingness to stomach potential swings in the value of investments is identified. There are many factors that affect tolerance and we spend time understanding each client’s individual comfort level before offering financial guidance. Before embarking on any investment strategy it is important to know your tolerance to ensure that you select the right kind of investments and you are able to set clear objectives. More importantly, when your investments are aligned with the proper risk-reward continuum, you have greater peace of mind with investment decisions.
