Understanding your attitude to risk

There are thousands of investment products available – some of which present more risk to your money than others.

Typically the more risk you’re prepared to take when you invest, the greater your potential returns. But it’s also important to remember that you have more chance of losing some of your capital and experiencing larger losses.

Before making an investment, you need to have a good understanding of your personal feelings towards risk and reward. Once you do, we can help you consider products that fit within your risk and reward profile, by making recommendations tailored to your specific requirements. If investing is suitable for you, we’ll advise in a way that suits your feelings towards risk.

The way we assess risk and reward is individual to you – and what you feel most comfortable with. We’ll always make sure you fully understand your agreed risk category, and feel in control with both your money and the level of risk you’re prepared to take.

Our recommendations are likely to include stock market-based investments. These are not like bank and building society savings accounts as your capital is at risk and you may get back less than you invested. The value of your investments and any income from them may fall as well as rise.
