Risk is a very personal thing – some people are comfortable jumping out of planes, while others can hardly bear to ride in one; that’s why it’s such a complicated topic in investing. For every high-risk investment out there, there’ll be someone to stand up and say they made big money on it.

By the same token, there are also some investments that are hardly ever worth the risk they entail … no matter who you are.
