Example text

Why is risk the key to everything? Not for the reasons you may be thinking. Risk doesn't keep people up at night and risk doesn't lose people money; bad investment plans do those things. All risk does is describe the chance that you won't reach your goal. If your goal is a three percent return, then there's no risk. You can simply buy a government T-bill that you know will pay the desired three percent, while guaranteeing the return of your investment in ninety days. As your investment goals increase, however, risk starts to come into play.

In our example, this means returns will be between two percent and eighteen percent. 2. There's an additional twenty-eight percent chance that, in any given year, the possible range of returns will be wider by another unit of standard deviation. Again using our example, if the range of one standard deviation is between two percent and eighteen percent as above, then there's a much smaller chance that the returns could lie outside that range by as much as eight percent (the value of a unit of deviation for this portfolio).

The vast majority of these are denominated in Canadian dollars. When we buy a European or other foreign mutual fund and pay in Canadian dollars, it's easy to forget about the currency risk, however, just because we forget, doesn't mean that the risk ceases to exist. When you purchase that fund, the manager must immediately convert your money to Euros or yen or drachmas—whatever. He does this so that he can purchase the required investments, because of course he has to pay in the local currency If you purchase a European mutual fund and the fund does well, will making a profit of fifteen percent make you money?
