As CNBC-TV18 celebrates the completion of 20 years of broadcasting, it brings to its viewers a special message on managing one's personal finance for risk adjusted returns.
Risk is usually always refereed to as high, medium and low but when we talk about returns, it is always quantified. In bull markets a fund with a lower risk than the benchmark can limit the return that you receive, while a fund with higher risk potential may experience more sizeable returns.
Most investors feel that fund managers are in the job of delivering returns when actually fund managers are in the job of managing risks. So the next time you analyse your returns make sure it is relative to the amount of risk that that investment has taken over that given period of time.
