2 Classification of Risks—Risk Exposures Pure versus Speculative Risk Exposures Risk professionals often differentiate between pure risk that features some chance of loss and no chance of gain (e.g., fire risk, flood risk, etc.) and those they refer to as speculative risk. Speculative risks feature a chance to either gain or lose (including investment risk, reputational risk, strategic risk, etc.) Using the Venn diagram on slide 3, the right-hand side focuses on speculative risk while the left-hand side represents pure risk. The simultaneous consideration of pure and speculative risks within the objectives range is an approach to managing risk, which is known as enterprise risk management (ERM).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
