•The degree to which various risks are important to a particular individual.
•What questions should I ask myself as I prepare to develop my risk profile?
•Ask yourself when you plan to use your investment—in a few years to buy a home, start a business, or pay for college, or in the future for retirement.
•After you have decided how long your money will work, the focus of your preparation should shift to personal preferences:

•Is capital preservation more important to you than outpacing inflation?
•Are you willing to accept fluctuating values when investing for the long term?
•Are you more comfortable with dividends and income, or with growth through capital appreciation?
•Will you accept above-average risk to generate above-average returns?

These are some of the questions you must ask for determining your Risk Profile…..

There are several Risk Profiles which are available online and your results can vary if you try more than a couple of them…

A Risk Profiler is mainly indicative of how you would behave given a particular scenario…or various scenarios.

Each Financial Plan written will start with a Risk Profiling questionnaire since based on the results your investments would be made.
They would vary from person to person.

e.g.

If you have invested Rs 5 lakhs in a company’s shares and they go down by 20% in value, what would you do ?

questions like these help you to assess your behaviour towards money which might surprise even yourself.

Do go online and try some Risk Profile exercises to give you a better understanding.

Share the results and we will then carry out the next step…..

Cheers
