Types of risk

Types of Risk:

  • Risk Avoidance:

  • To not become involved or eliminate yourself from a situation to avoid the risk.

  • Example:

  • Joel loves to ride his dirt bike. His friend Jack wants to ride at Pike’s Peak a very dangerous hill in their town. Joel tells Jack he’ll join him, but feels that it is a bad idea and at the night before he sends Jack a text to let him know he’s going to avoid the risk.

  • Risk Reduction:

  • To take measures to reduce your overall risk in a given situation.

  • Example:

  • Jenny got a flat tire in a bad area on her way home from work. Luckily, she has a spare tire and her brother taught her how to change a tire. She changed her tire in 15 minutes, rather than 3 hours waiting for a tow truck to come.

  • Risk Sharing:

  • To take measures to share your risk with another through insurance or risk transfer.

  • Example:

  • We were snowed in for almost two weeks and were unable to get out of our cabin. Fortunately, my mom had enough emergency supplies for a month so we didn’t have to worry.

  • Risk Retention:

  • To accept a given risk and prepare for it by budgeting.

  • Example:

  • I rented a beach cruiser for a three-day weekend trip to the beach but it was stolen. I didn’t get insurance because it was $25 per day and only had to pay $100 to replace the stolen bike.

  • Part of financial security is being prepared for disasters.

  • The federal government recommends having 72 hours of worth of supplies in case of a disaster; however it is best to have a minimum of 3 months worth of food, water and supplies.

  • It is important to remember that a disaster can be natural (something in nature) or caused by someone (an attack from another country).

  • While the government recommends having 72 hours worth of supplies on hand keep in mind the following:

    • It took 5 days to get aid to Hurricane Katrina victims in Louisiana.

    • It took about a week to get water to victims in Haiti.
