When investing, different types of risks can impact the performance of an assets or portfolio. Market risk is influenced by economic factors such as inflation, currency fluctuation and recessions. Liquidity risk is a lack of liquidity that makes it difficult to buy or sell assets. Political risk is based on government events and regulations. Interest rate risk is associated with investments that are fixed, like bonds. Rate changes can have a negative impact on returns.
In addition, each type of investment will have its own unique set of risks that should be considered when making decisions about how best allocate one’s funds. As stocks tend to be more volatile, they can offer higher potential returns. However, there is also a risk that the market will turn bad. Commodities and real estate, on the other hand are less risky investments because their value tends to increase with time instead of fluctuating dramatically according to recent events.
Investors can make informed decisions by understanding the types of risk involved prior to investing. They will also be able to manage their personal tolerance for risk.
