Global Asset Management Investment Risks and Avoiding Scams

You had just acquired a decent amount of money. You want to put it somewhere where it will grow in time for you. Or, you could have acquired assets thanks to your well-off relatives. You want to make sure that those assets become earning entities in the future. A moment for celebrating, you want to make sure that the reasonable expectations associated with the acquisition of wealth has will come true. What are you to do?

You will proceed to invest.

However, there are also risks associated with this, most especially if the assets you received is either money, shares in a company, or perhaps some stocks or bonds.

What is financial risk?

Risks are everywhere – in every business, in every office, in every market. For instance, in a restaurant kitchen, slips and falls can happen. Or, in a thick forest, forest fires may occur. Even those riding vehicles may encounter vehicular accidents.

If there is an opportunity for a profit, there is also a risk, such as scam, to it. The financial risks can be exposures to losses. For instance, a landslide is an exposure. Damaged buildings housing business is also an exposure.

When you see there is the possibility of losing, i.e. money in a particular event, i.e. business venture, you see potential risk. It matters to you because it involves you or your money.

Interested parties can suffer the loss of their capital when there is a financial risk. If the party involved is a government office, this may mean they are focused on bonds, or other debt issues and are unable to control their country’s monetary policy. Even corporations face financial risks or even financial burdens.

Everybody is affected by financial risks. All should be aware of those. It might not eliminate the risk, but at least, there is a reduction in the harm it can bring to one.

What is risk management?

Risk management starts with risk assessment by weighing the pros and cons of, i.e. a business venture. When you make and carry out decisions to minimize the potential harm a risk might bring in your organization, you are doing risk management. The ill-effects of hazards can be objective such as claims costs or insurance premiums or subjective such as waning performance of your staff. A business will be protected from uncertainty, reducing its values, and succeed if they focus their attention on the risks and scams lying ahead and doing their utmost to control risks.

What are investment risks?

When there is an expected return of investment in a particular venture, there is also this possibility of having losses concerning the return. In other words, this is that level or extent of the uncertainty of reaching the expectations from a, i.e. business. Less risk is seen by most investors as favorable when making an investment. On the other hand, the higher the risk, the higher the return is a rule of thumb.

How to reduce investment risks

There are times when we base our decision on our emotions – even our financial decisions. That is why there are times when we buy things when prices are high and sell our items when prices around us regarding that product are low. How can we avoid making such?

  1.   Asset allocation. Investments are worth trying, such as stocks, shares, or bonds. Depending on the goal of the investor, he/she may allocate, i.e. 50-50 on shares and bonds. Or it can be 60-40 on shares and stocks. The goal is to avoid placing all eggs in just one basket. Just make sure that you are aware of your investment time frame, the potential risks, as well as rewards of where you will invest your money.
  2.   Portfolio diversification. Portfolio diversification refers to the selection of investments within an asset class so that investment risks can be reduced. This will also help in lessening the impact of the effect of the market on your money.
  3.   Dollar-cost averaging. This is a disciplined strategy helping you to smoothen the effects of inevitable market fluctuations. You will invest a specific amount of money on purchasing, i.e. stocks first. Then, another amount of money in the purchase of shares or bonds. Because of this strategy, you will purchase more shares when prices are lower and purchase lesser shares during high times. This strategy will prevent you from deciding based purely on your emotions. After some time, the average price of the shares will be higher than the average cost of your claims.

What is an interest rate?

If a lender charges a percentage of his/her money to a borrower for using his/her money, that is called an interest rate. The term principal refers to the initial amount of money loaned.

The interest rate shall tell the borrower how much he/she should pay monthly.

The cost of loans is affected by interest rates. Economies can be sped up or slowed down as a result.

While interest rates are used commonly for personal loans, interest rates may also extend to loans when purchasing cars, groceries, or buildings.

Depending on whether a borrower is low-risk or high-risk, a lender can offer lower or higher interest rates. If we see almost the same numbers when it comes to interest rates, this means there is a competition for borrowers among lenders. There are also some more factors influencing current interest rates. These are inflation, demand

for credit, or lower money supply.

If there is a lack of affordable credit, interest rates rise. The economy may worsen due to this scenario. Corporate profits, as well as government monetary policies, are also

influenced by interest rates.

When somebody takes assets from you, such as money through deception or some bogus activity, a financial scam or financial fraud has just occurred.
