There is a fundamental link between an investment’s return and its risk. • ‘Investment return’ is the amount of money your investment earns. • ‘Investment risk’ is the variability of returns and the chance that your investment will return less than you expect, or your investment makes a loss leaving you with less capital than when you started, or your investment doesn’t even keep up with inflation meaning it is worth less over time. • ‘Volatility’ is the relative rate at which the price of an investment moves up or down. • Generally, the higher the potential returns, the greater the risk. The smaller the potential risks, the lower the returns.
