what does risk assessment mean to you?

Risk Free Money, to Value Investing!

When investing, a good portfolio manager will ask you about your “attitude to risk”, with Sports Investing of any kind of investing it’s perhaps more pertinent to ask what a person’s “attitude to loss” is. With any investment there will always be losses, shares can go down as well as up!

Matched Betting ROI – Return on Investment

I started this wee project on 11/07/12 with a “float” of £350 – I have since “repaid” that float back to whence it came and the figure I present to you today of £1915 is pure profit that is an ROI, in 8 months, of nearly 550% – I have no doubts – this percentage return will not scale

Trading a lot, pennies make pounds

But there’s a gotcha, I don’t know If I’ll reach this target so I’m setting myself another goal and that is to not make a loss on the qualifying trades.

1st new purchase is to be another external drive to get all documents and profiles saved to, then we (me and my baby) have to start the parting of our ways as she really cannot last very much longer, yes I’m sentimental, but I felt the same way over my first car and I kept her until she had to go to the scrapyard in the sky :(

In One Hand, Out the Other PTII

Thrift mode came into play, time to go shopping. I do like to research online but when shopping for large items I do like to see before I buy though I also knew I’d likely get a better deal if I shopped online so first I set about researching what features we’d most like in a new family PC . The first thing voted for was unanimous.. it had to be laptop so that bit was easy.
