Risk-averse

Definition 1

Investing conservatively.

Definition 2

Wanting to avoid 

Risk

 unless adequately compensated for it; the attitude of most investors. For example, if two investments have the same expected return, the one with lower 

Risk

 will be preferred. A riskier investment has to have a higher 

Expected return

 in 

Order

 to provide an incentive for a 

Risk-averse

 investor to select it.
