Risk and Return

Risk and Return

 

We examined two very important topics in finance this week: risk and return. To summarize our discussion of the tradeoffs involved with risk and return, view the Evaluating Business Performance: Small Business Case Studies video:

Critically reflect on the importance of the risk and return balance. Consider the following:

  • Can we ever have any return without some type of risk?
  • If you take on a large risk, are you guaranteed a large return? Why or why not?
  • What other factors play into risks that are not covered in the video?
  • When have you had to consider risk and return in personal or professional decision-making?

Carefully review the Grading Rubric (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. for the criteria that will be used to evaluate your assignment.
