Risk tolerance - Episode 1 | Season2

To kick off season 2 of The Nudging Financial Behaviour Podcast, we’re talking about a big topic – risk. Risk aversion and risk tolerance are two big concepts that you need to wrap your head around if you want to understand one of the strongest pulls on how and why you make specific decisions about your money. 

To help us unpack risk tolerance, we have high performance coach, trainer and trading consultant Steve Ward as our first guest. Steve has written many books on the subject of risk, as well as running his own business that helps people to be better traders – Performance Edge Consulting. 

This season, we’re actually doing a miniseries on risk and loss aversion, and this is the start of the discussion. We’ve got a lot to go through, and it’s going to be fascinating!
