Check Who are You


Risk Tolerance

Investing world is very personal. Some could take bigger risk, while some prefer secure investment like ASB. To know which side you are belong to, you can fill this short quiz and check the result yourself. Just make sure to be as honest as possible.

Risk Tolerance Quiz


Here What I got:

Your score for risk capacity is 34:
With a score between 30 and 38 you have the wherewithal to take selective investment risks that includes both stocks – which carry higher risk – and bonds, that have much less risk. You might consider a portfolio that is anchored by large company U.S. stocks — perhaps 40 percent — maybe in an index fund. Include small company U.S. stocks, too, at about 20 percent. International stocks should play a role — perhaps another 20 to 25 percent of your portfolio. The final 20 percent could split between short to medium term bonds and some type of hedge, such as a natural resources fund. This type of portfolio could lose about 20 percent in a year.


Your score for risk tolerance is 34:
With a tolerance of 33 to 41, you have a healthy tolerance for risk with the capacity to match. You have the wherewithal to take selective investment risks that could lose as much as 20 percent of its value in any given year

Now, go there and let me know how are you doing.

    Results
    Your score for risk capacity is 20
    With a score of 21 or less, you have a low capacity for risk at this time. You should consider safe investments. Start with the bulk of your portfolio — perhaps 75 percent — in short to medium term bonds, split evenly between 1 to 3 years, 3 to 5 years and 5 to 10 years. The rest of your portfolio should go into stocks, perhaps 12 to 13 percent in large cap, 9 percent in small cap and 5 or 6 percent international. The estimated worst case scenario for such a portfolio would be a 4 percent loss in a year.

    Your score for risk tolerance is 38
    With a tolerance of 33 to 41, you have a healthy tolerance for risk, but your capacity suggests you may need to consider a moderately risky investment strategy. You may want to consider a portfolio in which about half of the investments are in less risky investments like bonds, combined with investments in large-company U.S. stocks and international funds.
