To begin thinking about your risk capacity, read the following statements and rate how much they apply to you on a scale of 1 to 3.


1 Completely false
2 Somewhat true
3 Completely true
  • You are able to save money regularly.
  • You can pay all your monthly bills on time -- including any credit card or other debt.
  • You have enough income or other sources of wealth today to help you withstand any investment losses.
  • If you lose money investing today, your current lifestyle would not be impacted.
  • If you had to stop working for a year, your current lifestyle would not be impacted.
  • If you lose money investing today, you have time to make up any losses before you need your money – and will still be able to reach all your savings goals for the long term.
  • You do not need to draw down more than 5% of your investment portfolio for any major financial goal in the next five years.


If you answered “false” to any of these questions, the impact of investment losses may be larger for you than for other people. This means your risk capacity will be lower. The more “true” answers for you, the higher your risk capacity. Of course, this is only a general indicator of your financial ability to withstand investment losses.
