There are two views on risk, one totally objective and the other subjectively considering the psyche of each person.
Targeted Return: is the probability of not meeting the expected return over a given time horizon.
Volatility: is a subjectively or personally experienced emotional state influenced by the ability to make decisions under conditions of uncertainty.
What is the Third Circle Asset Management solution for this problem?
The Third Circle Asset Management (Pty) Ltd solution is to give the same weight to both views on risk because investors want to be comfortable with their investment decisions and they would like to reach their pre-determined goals. They assess the investor’s ability and appetite to accept risk.
Therefore if they know what your Moneymax® money personality profile is, they can suggest a portfolio solution that is ideal for your money personality. It is the expertise of the financial advisor that will lead the investor to the right portfolio structure because the financial advisor will look at the investor’s personal financial position and goals.
The investor will have to decide what is more important, to reach his or her financial goals or rather stay in his or her money personality comfort zone.
The Moneymax® money personality programme as risk analysis is an excellent way to determine an investors risk profile, and assist him to design a portfolio for his needs.
For us to determine your risk profile it is imperative that you need to do the Moneymax® money personality profile test at a small fee of R299. You can do the test and the result will be forward to you within a couple of hours.
