Risk and Markets
The Oxford dictionary defines risk as “A situation involving exposure to danger”. In our daily lives, we are constantly exposed to risk, to one degree or another. In most cases we can assess the risk of doing something ourselves, whether it’s emotional in putting ourselves outside of our comfort zone socially or performing a sporting activity or something as simple as crossing the road. We make our own risk assessment and choose whether to undertake the activity.
