Take My Online Risk Assessment

Research shows that four out of five investors have more risk in their portfolio than they realize.* This excess of risk can subject you to greater losses in market downturns. Risk is different for every person based on their unique situation, stage of life, and personality. It is important to understand your personal risk preference so that you can ensure that your portfolio is in line with it and you aren’t caught off guard. Do you know your risk number? Check out my online risk assessment tool to see where you stand today!

Once you know your unique risk number, it’s time to make sure your portfolio reflects your risk level. Take the first step and reach out to me at (949) 221-8105 x 2128, or email me at michael.loo@lpl.com.

*Research by Riskalyze, LLC

Diversification helps you spread risk throughout your portfolio, so investments that do poorly may be balanced by others that do relatively better. Neither diversification nor rebalancing can ensure a profit or protect against a loss.

*Growth and Preservation are positioned as an investment goal.  Investing in certain securities may help to hedge against certain risk, but does not imply any guarantee from loss.
