Risk Aversion

Risk aversion is characterised by a reluctance, or unwillingness to take what are deemed to be risky positions. A risk-averse investor’s primary objective is to minimise uncertainty. In trading this can translate to positions in ‘safer’ investments such as bonds, and safe-haven assets such as gold.
