In this episode, we’re going to talk about the importance of balancing risks and rewards. Since historically, overvaluation is eventually corrected, investors must proceed with caution when asset prices begin to rise ahead of “fundamental valuation measures.” It is therefore important that all market participants must weigh the amount of risks they’re willing to take in exchange for return or income. To understand these risks to be cautious of, we must first understand the rewards that investors seek in return for taking on these risks.
