Discussion Financial Markets
One aspect of investing is taking risks in the pursuit of greater returns on those investments. Keeping in mind the knowledge you gained from this week’s video on risk, return, and financial securities, consider what types of investments appeal to you and why.
Consider this week’s instructor video and reading assignments about diversification. Assume that you were given $100,000 to invest in financial assets, and discuss the following:
Explain what your investment portfolio would look like.
Share what you believe is your risk tolerance.
Consider your peers’ responses, and explain the reasons you would (or would not) take on risk when investing.
Review your peers’ responses on diversification, and discuss the differences you find between your position and theirs.
