Created for the protection of your investments

Your savvy risk advisors move between 0% (= rather no risk) and 100% (= a rather high risk).

Low percentage readings help you identify rather low-risk markets and vice versa.

Generally, a risk index level equal to or above 60% is indicating a rather high-risk and unfavorable market environment.

Our risk indications divide market risk into three main zones:

"low risk" = risk index is lower than 40%

"medium risk" = risk index is between 40% and 60% 

"high risk" = risk index is equal or higher than 60%

Risk management with risk indices

"Low-risk" environment

"Immediately discover a new positive market environment"

A drop under the 40% signal line indicates a rather low risk and positive market environment.

Positive market environment

"Stay relaxed and invested"

As long as our market risk indices are below the 40% signal line, a rather favorable and positive market condition is forecasted.

Favorable market condition

"High-risk" environment

"Now the risk management kicks in"

A rise over the 60% signal line indicates a rather negative market environment. It’s time to start protecting your assets and to consider exiting the markets.

Negative market environment

"Relax your mind and stay away from unfavorable market situations"

Use your precious time to consider on other markets as long as our risk indices are indicating rather high-risk market conditions (i.e. readings equal to or above 60%).

Unfavorable market condition
