Risk Tolerance Questionnaire

Determining Your Investor Risk Profile and Investment Objectives

A key step in the financial planning process is to determine your risk profile. This profile will help determine key factors such as your time horizon, investment objectives and attitudes toward investing. This profile is critical in the development of an appropriate asset allocation policy.

To complete this profile, answer each question by circling the number in the right hand column that best matches your situation. Remember to answer the questions according to your investment objectives.
