Your Risk Profile - Milford Asset

Your risk profile

Establishing your appetite for potential risk and return is an essential step before you invest any money.

Risk versus time

Time can have a strong influence over risk. Typically, as your investment time shortens your appetite for risk will lessen because you have less time to offset any short-term falls in value.
