Example to understand Height of Reward and Depth of Risk:

Let's under this Height of Reward and Depth of Risk with an example swimming pool diver.

There are 3 zones in swimming pool according to height of diving platform as below:

As safe zone, average zone and aggressive zone.

Safe Zone:

In safe zone the new comer or the less confident public use to learn and dive in swimming pool.
As this zone is safe and heaving less height and hence no chance of getting hurt or drowning.

Similar way in investment also the conservative or less confident public (Diver A & Diver B) put or invest their money in saving a/c or FD & PF.

As this zone is safe and having less risk of money drowning but the impact is visible on their Reward.

As their investment is safe but earning get locks between

3% - 5% in saving a/c, means on 1 Lakh return is Rs.3000 to Rs.5000 in 1 yr.
7% - 9% in FD & PF, means on 1 Lakh return  is Rs.7000 to Rs.9000 in 1 yr.

In this zone the diving platform is at average height and public having little bit of confidence and having very little swimming experience, but can dive with the help of some expert diver. Platform height is somewhat more than safe zone but less than aggressive zone. Height is more and chance of hurting is also there but average range.

Similar way in investment also the moderate or little bit confidence public (Diver C) put or invest their money in MF with the help of expert Fund Manager and Fund Advisory.

As this zone is average and having average risk of money drowning but the impact is visible on their Reward.

As their investment is averagely safe and earning get locks between

12% - 20% in MF.

Aggressive Zone:

In this zone the diving platform is at very high level and public having well experienced can survive here only. No one help any one here you have to work hard for yourself.

Similar way in investment also the aggressive or experienced public (Diver D & Diver E) put or invest their money in Stocks and F&O with their own experience.

As this zone is aggressive and having high risk of money drowning but the impact is also visible on their Reward.

As their investment is risky and earning having no boundary limit, sky is totally open to generate return.

For the above discussion till now you are quit clear that, as the height of diving platform is increasing more and more then the risk is also increasing from hurting, injury to drowning, if not handle properly.

So in investment also as the Height of Reward is increasing from 3%, 7%, 12%, +25% and +50% then the Depth of Risk is also increasing from safe return, average return to unsafe return or even zero return ie total loss.

As Risk and Reward are directly associated with each other. As the Risk increase so the Reward is also going to increase.

  • Saving a/c less risk and less return.
  • FD & PF less risk and less return
  • MF moderate risk and moderate return
  • Stocks high risk and high return
  • F&O very high risk and very high return.

Very crystal clear picture, choose your limit of return ( Safe /  Average / Aggressive ) you want, don't be greedy if you can't handle the risk part and accordingly invest in the instrument ( Saving & FD/PF / .MF / Stocks & F&O) as per your ability.
