Resources: Investing Basics: Volatility: Risk Tolerance
Some investors enjoy the excitement of monitoring their investments every day. Others prefer the stability of government-secured investments such as Treasury bills.
Investment decisions are typically determined by a risk/return tradeoff. The more risk you are willing to undertake, the higher your potential return. You also face higher potential losses.
For a complete assessment of your risk tolerance, complete our Personal Investment Profile Questionnaire. Afterwards, your financial professional can help you understand the results, and select the investments that are best suited for your risk tolerance.
A mutual fund's share price and investment return will vary with market conditions, and the principal value of an investment when you sell your shares may be more or less than the original cost.
Asset allocation/diversification does not guarantee a profit or protect against a loss.
