thinking about financial risks

Post by larryswedroe » Fri Dec 21, 2012 9:15 am ... -planning/

This can out of question I got during interview with Bloomberg's Pimm Fox. Obviously the list here is not exhaustive as there are other risks I didn't list (such as disability, long term care)

Hope you find it helpful

As someone who consults in risk management for a living (well, for part of a living, anyway), I find this to be a good article to introduce investors to the idea of risk management, and to alert them to some possible sources of risk about which they may not have thought. It's not comprehensive, as you say, but it covers a good chunk of the spectrum. Well done!
Simplify the complicated side; don't complify the simplicated side.
