Every single person is unique, and with that, comes a unique level of risk tolerance within their portfolio. 

In this episode, J Barry Watts and Eric Burlison discuss risk and volatility as it pertains to your portfolio, and how you can understand what your own personal risk tolerance is.

Barry & Eric discuss:

  • Investment risk and how it impacts your portfolio and retirement
  • The arithmetic of loss and understanding what it takes to even out after a loss
  • How to quantify the amount of risk you are willing to hold
  • Why understanding your risk number matters to protecting yourself
  • And more!
