The question is – can you avoid the risk of an accident while traveling. No, you can not. But you can certainly ‘Manage the Risk’
Similarly, in investment, one needs to manage the risk by solid Risk Management principles.
However, we need to understand one more ‘Very Important’ principle of investing. This principle says that – ‘More the returns more is the risk’.
While investing, your investment advisor constantly works on managing the risk. The returns are the outcome of good risk management.
As an airplane does not meet with an accident, every now and then, an investment with good risk management gives better results. If you always believed in focusing on risk management, the returns are taken care of automatically.
