Every decision we make involves managing the balance between risk and opportunity. Very often employees navigate this complex maze at a subconscious level. So, what if there is a bias or a tendency to be pulled in one direction or the other on the risk spectrum?

The Risk Type Compass is an online personality assessment that focuses on the differences in the way individuals perceive, react to and manage risk, as well as how they make decisions. The Risk Type Compass assigns individuals to one of eight Risk Types and enables you to measure their propensity for risk in an objective manner.

The tool facilitates discussion about risk tolerance, the suitability of Risk Types for risk related roles and, within the investment domain, allows portfolio management to achieve more appropriate levels of risk suitability for clients.
