Investing is about taking some risk for expected reward

Investing means taking risk with the aim of expected reward. Some investors will take higher risks with the hope of higher rewards. While the asset manager will help manage that risk (through diversification and risk management, for example), investors take the risk that the value of assets may go down as well as up.
