Related Reading: How to Reduce Business Risks Currency Risk Currency risk occurs when business investments in foreign companies or economic markets increase or decrease in value based on the current currency exchange rate. Investors may also face currency risk if they invest money in mutual funds or money markets that offer international investments. Currency risk may be mitigated by investing in multiple international markets at one time. Liquidity Risk Liquidity risk is the inability to buy or sell investments quickly on the open market. This risk may also occur when investors are unable to buy or sell investments at a reasonable price. Investors often face higher liquidity risk in over-the-counter markets and small-cap stocks. This risk is higher because investments in these markets usually have lower investment demand. Political Risk Political risk occurs in business investments when domestic or international regions make significant changes to the business environment. Common political risks include increased government regulation, heavy taxation rates, military coups or terrorist attacks and war. This risk may create significant disruptions to international markets where free enterprise conditions may be less favorable.

Company Risk Company risk is a one of two types of non-systematic risk. This type of risk occurs when companies make bad business decisions, struggle to maintain positive cash flows, or continually produce goods or services that cannot meet consumer demand. Company risk may be difficult to assess as negative situations can be hidden inside a company’s operations. Credit Risk The second most common non-systematic risk relates to a company’s credit. Credit risk occurs when companies are unable to repay investors or pay out investment contracts, such as fixed annuities. Credit risk also relates to bond issuers who cannot pay interest or principal at maturity date of the bond.

    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.
