The "Risk On / Risk Off" concept

In addition to presenting at Credo's recent International Investment Conference in both Johannesburg and Cape Town at the end of October, Deon Gouws also represented the firm in the annual Investing Abroad conference in the same two cities and shared a panel with a number of other leading global investment firms in the process. In his presentation titled "RORO and other four letter words", Deon addressed the concept of "Risk On / Risk Off" within the context of the current investment environment. The presentation reiterated the principle that risk needs to be embraced and managed as a prerequisite for growing the longer term value of an investor's portfolio, and concluded with some practical suggestions within a framework of uncertain financial markets.
