The riskometer is a standardized tool used by mutual funds to communicate the risk levels of individual funds. It employs a visual representation with a needle, similar to a compass, to indicate different risk levels. Categories range from “Low Risk” for minimal risk suitable for conservative investors to “Very High Risk” for aggressive investors targeting long-term wealth creation. Each category outlines the expected risk on the principal, providing guidance for investors based on their risk tolerance. Higher-risk categories may involve exposure to equity-oriented risks and volatile stocks, while lower-risk options are more conservative, emphasizing wealth preservation.
