Willing to take moderate risk:
If Mr Rajesh is prepared to take a moderate risk, then it is possible to diversify his investment instruments.
A moderate risk investor needs equally decreased losses and better returns. To achieve higher long-term returns, this investor is able to take modest risks. In return for long-term appreciation, a moderate investor will suffer a short-term loss of principal and a lower degree of liquidity.
There are many forms of risk related to any investment instrument; they are market risk, interest risk, liquidity risk and tax risk.
With a few financial securities, a moderate risk portfolio can be developed, which can include stock shares, mutual funds, debentures, and even bank deposits. These tools will minimise the major risks mentioned above and at the same time generate healthy growth.
