Your risk profile represents how much risk you are willing to take. This is determined through a series of questions regarding your risk attitude, financial means and investment objectives. At the end of the questionnaire, you are assigned a risk profile, also called the Investment Profile (IP). This rating ranges from IP1 (most conservative) to IP6 (most aggressive). You can select investment products suitable for you based on your risk rating. Example:
