On today’s Intelligent Money Minute, we welcome Aaron Klein the CEO of Riskalyze. During this episode, Aaron explains the importance of knowing your risk, and the multiple types of risks investors may need to consider.
At Intelligent Investing, we believe in looking at a clients’ risk in four ways:
- Willingness to take on risk (your sleep at night factor as we call it)
- Ability to take on risk—how much risk are you able to take based on your balance sheet and income statement.
- Need for risk (which comes from the financial plan and your goals and time horizon)
- Your portfolio’s risk—We strive to align these risks for our clients in an easy-to-understand risk number that we monitor over time.
As Aaron mentioned, we want to transform fearful investors who make bad decisions into fearless investors who make great decisions, and over time improve their financial picture. To learn more about our philosophy, be sure to subscribe to our podcasts so you can stay informed.
