Risk

Risk
Risk is the chance you may lose something of value.

Investing: How likely it is that an investment can go bad (part or all of the investment could be lost).

Example: Sam invested $500 in a friends business. The business is new and might fail, so is high risk.

But Sam also has $500 in the bank, a very low risk investment.
