The Risk Profile Questionnaire is designed to help you gain an in-depth understanding of your investment objective, which serves as the foundation of your portfolio and guides us in making investment recommendations. Your investment objective is based on many factors, including your time horizon, financial goals and risk tolerance. To build your portfolio, you must clearly define your financial goals. Short-term goals may include buying a house or financing a dream vacation. Long-term goals may include saving for your child’s education or planning for your retirement.
