What is your investment risk tolerance?

Risk Tolerance Questionnaire

How much risk can you handle when you invest in the stock market?

Find out by taking a short 10-question survey. Your results can be emailed to you or you can speak to one of Paragon’s wealth managers about your personal situation.

We added this survey to our website to help investors find out their investment risk tolerance to help them invest in the stock market wisely.

It is important for investors to invest according to their risk tolerance to help them stay in the market for the long-term and be able to handle the amount of stress they experience when their account declines.

If you invest too aggressively for your risk tolerance, then at some level of decline you may reach a breaking point.

If your risk tolerance is set too low, you won’t generate the returns you should. If it is set too high, should market conditions become difficult, you will likely close your account and miss out on superior long-term returns.

Risk tolerance needs to be set at the right level for each individual investor. Couples should each take the survey individually, and then combine the results to identify what both individuals will be comfortable with.

Determining your risk tolerance can be difficult. Click this link- risk tolerance survey to complete a short questionnaire that will help you identify yours.

Right now our investment models are favoring areas such as emerging markets and resource-based sectors. Emerging markets are showing good relative strength and are improving based upon confidence that the global economic situation is improving.

Areas such as Brazil and China are benefiting from the commodity demand theme as their middle classes continue to grow. These areas were also less exposed to the credit crisis.

Improving economic prospects along with the increased global demand for commodities directly benefits resource-based sectors of the economy. We have been allocating towards these areas, and now that we are in the summer doldrums we will look for further opportunities to average into these areas on any pullbacks.
