這是 今天的「今日問答 (Question and Answer of the Day)」專欄主題,特別記錄下來供日後參考。

What is Risk-Aversion?


Risk aversion is a market theme that occurs when investors are not confident about the economic climate and will give up potential higher yielding assets for the safe-haven of lower-yielding assets. Stocks, oil, and the commodity currencies are considered "risk assets" and US Treasuries, the US dollar, and Swiss franc are considered safe haven assets.

風險厭惡是一種市場題材,會在投資人對經濟氣候 (情勢) 沒信心,而為低收益的避險資產放棄收益可能更高的資產時出現。股票、石油和各種商品貨幣 (Commodity Currency) 被視為「風險資產 (Risk Asset)」,而美國公債 (US Treasury)、美金及瑞士法郎 (Swiss franc) 則被視為避險資產。
