Investor profile

These are the concepts you need to be clear about: return and risk

Two basic concepts to decide your investor profile

If you've never invested in funds, it's time to forget about markets and managers. Just focus on these two concepts – they're the only ones you need to be clear about.

Always by your side

Investment funds contain two inextricably linked variables: the expected return and the potential risk. The two concepts operate in a directly proportional manner and make all the difference when choosing one fund over another.

Risk definition

The potential risk of a fund, whether higher or lower, is basically related to the percentage it invests in the equity market, i.e. the stock market. As you no doubt know, this market is more volatile that other markets. It offers a higher return but the potential risk is also higher.

What do these concepts actually mean?

Expected return
The lower the expected return, the lower the potential risk.
LOW
MEDIUM
HIGH
Potential risk
And conversely: the higher the expected return, the higher the potential risk.
LOW
MEDIUM
HIGH

Now you can answer this question: what profile do you identify with?
