Risk management is an essential part of any investment strategy. In managing risk, as in many other areas of investment, one of the key principles is that your strategy needs to be flexible. Your current investment goals, the time horizon for achieving these, and your individual attitude to risk are all important – and all change over time.
For example, if you are planning on retiring in 10 years’ time, you may be willing to take on a moderate amount of risk to improve your future situation. If, however, you are retiring in 12 months’ time, you may be very unwilling to take on risk and prefer to remain conservative with what you have already achieved.
How We Can Help You Manage Your Risk
We’ll work with you to establish your own attitude to risk and to create a strategy that enables you to pursue both your immediate and long-term financial objectives. By comparing this against the level of risk currently inherent in your portfolio, we’ll then be able to set out an action plan that enables us to align the two. This might include strategies such as portfolio diversification, transferring risk, repositioning assets, and the use of insurance policies to reduce risk.
Our risk management services are ongoing projects: we’ll regularly revisit your risk assessment with you to check that our current strategy still addresses your objectives, and plan adjustments where necessary.
