You may have heard of risk tolerance, but have you ever heard of risk capacity?
Your risk tolerance is how much risk you can (or think you can) tolerate.Your risk capacity is how much risk you can actually handle to live the life you want to live.
Financial planning is nothing more than an understanding of the target (or targets) we’re aiming for, math, and determining if we’re using the proper tools to get the job done.
For example, if you have a target retirement date of 10 years, a $1,000,000.00 portfolio, and a desired retirement income of 50k a year from your investments, then you do not have the risk capacity to have a majority of those assets in high risk investments, because you will need to rely on them to create a replacement income so that you can enjoy your life without employment income very soon.
A major part of Crown Haven’s diagnostic is to zero in on your exact risk capacity, then determine how that aligns with your current financial positions.
