Investor risk-taking, measured

March 11, 2024

Two half pie charts show a visual representation of 6- and 12-month risk speedometers. The pie charts go from 0 to 180 degrees. An arrow below each chart indicates that below-average risk moves toward the left side and above-average risk moves toward the right side. The charts are color-coded to indicate 1, 2, and greater than 2 standard deviations above and below the mean. The 6-month chart shows the current reading between 0 and -1 standard deviation while the prior reading is in the -1 to -2 standard deviation range. The 12-month reading shows the current reading in the -1 to -2 standard deviation range and the prior reading in the 0 to 1 standard deviations range.
