Who is Risk Averse investor?
In the investment world risk is a common word associated with any kind of investments as the saying goes” Higher the risk, higher the returns”. But on the other side of the coin it also depicts higher the risk, higher the losses. This is the reason why some people run away from risks and take up investments that are less risky and provide moderate returns in the long run. Risk Averse investor is a person who invests his savings in such instrument which provides moderate to good returns for a given period of time with less or no risk.
Chennai a Risk Averse Community
Chennaiites are people who fall in to this category where they prefer to invest in to instruments like gold, real estate, SIPs or MFs. With demonetization and other financial crisis on the bay the investors in the southern region as compared to their counterparts in North, West and East tend to get to their roots by investing in Real Estate and Gold in larger numbers. The sheer confidence of the investors is built on the growing value of the fixed assets or shares linked to these assets. In case of a share market where the volatility is high, investors who are risk averse tend to avoid with their investments.

Share market is not a cup of tea for the Chennaiites as they look at safety and security of their hard earned money and look for regular returns rather than a sudden jump of returns based on high risk. The periodic saving schemes offered by jewelers, bank FDs and RDs, Postal saving schemes, LIC, Mutual Funds and majorly Real Estate are the investment options Chennaiites prefer over the share trading as they are less risky and provide definite returns.
