  • Let's start with a summary. Your portfolio's risk-versus-return score on a scale of 0 to 100 is 12.3.

    Risk-vs-Return
  • Your score of 12.3 indicates where your portfolio falls on the spectrum of risk versus expected returns.

    • A score of 100 aims for the highest long-term returns, with high risk.
    • A score of 12.3 is neither good nor bad.
    • The goal is that it intuitively reflect your intent for this investment.
  • To visualize how your risk score can be adjusted to suit your objectives, let's compare it to efficient-frontier portfolios.

    • Efficient-frontier portfolios are computed dynamically using all the portfolios tracked by investors on this website.
    • They have delivered the best returns for the risk taken.
    • The portfolio nearest the top-right of the chart has the highest risk-return balance. Its risk score is 100.
  • Here is your portfolio along with the portfolios on the Efficient Frontier. Click on a portfolio bubble if you wish to replace your portfolio with one on the Efficient Frontier.

  • Now let's look at other measures of risk.

  • Drawdowns measure how much a portfolio has dropped below its most recent peak value.

    • A drawdown of 0% means the portfolio has reached a new high.
    • Most of the time a portfolio is below its last peak as markets fluctuate.
    • Only once in a while does it reach a new peak, and the drawdown reverts to 0.
    • Average and maximum drawdowns give an indication of risk.
  • Your portfolio's drawdown history highlights how deep losses were and how long it took to recover.

    Drawdowns are shown as percentage losses from the most recent peak value.
  • Your portfolio's largest historical drawdown was -56.9%.

  • Here is a summary of the most common risk metrics. Click on highlights for definitions.
