Risk profiler

Answer 8 questions to help you understand your attitude to investment risk

Understanding your attitude to investment risk

It's important to understand your attitude to investment risk to help ensure any funds you choose are right for you.
Our Risk Profiler can help you identify how much risk you may be prepared to take with your investments.

It's important to consider how long you're investing for. Investments should be viewed as a medium - to long-term commitment which typically means a period of at least between five and 15 years.

There are eight simple short questions - your responses will produce a general outcome which will summarise your attitude to investment risk. If you're an existing Aviva customer we won't use any existing data.
