Whereas cautious investments that have had a lower chance of loss also have achieved lower returns. Which of the following statements best describes your attitude to risk?

– I am willing to accept some risk and chance of loss in an effort to achieve modest but somewhat higher returns.
– I am willing to accept moderate risk in order to achieve higher returns. Reducing risk and increasing returns are equally important to me.
– I want to achieve strong returns on my investments. I am willing to accept somewhat higher risk and chance of loss.
