You Don't Understand Risk

With all the recent shark attacks in the news, I was reminded of an article published on Bloomberg relating investment risk to the frequency of large predator kills. They are quite a rare occurrence, but we tend to perceive them and the associated risk as being much more prevalent. This misperception also has much to do with risks when it comes to investing.

With shark attacks, Greece, Puerto Rico, etc. in the headlines take a few minutes and read the article linked below. Remember what risk truly and is not and focus on what you can control.
