Risk Analyser

A risk profile is an assessment of an individual’s willingness to take risk. Essentially, a measure of how much risk a person will accept in lieu of directly proportional profits. With the increase in the number of financial instruments over the years, it has become an imperative first step in investing.

Your risk profile is determined by objective factors (age , income level, number of dependents, security of your job) and subjective factors (risk behaviour intrinsic to each individual's psychology).

For example, men in their 20s are more likely to invest in equity than in fixed deposits.
