Calculating risk capacity is the first step to deciding which portfolio will generate optimal returns for each investor.

Each investor has a unique risk capacity and can be identified by a *risk capacity score* — a measure of how much risk one can manage.

Begin the survey below to find your risk capacity score so we can match you with an appropriate portfolio.

Each survey will result in a risk capacity score based on five specific risk dimensions of an investor: 1) time horizon and liquidity needs; 2) attitude toward risk; 3) net worth; 4) income and savings rate; and 5) investment knowledge.
