Joe: Hey Zoey, have you ever heard of limited risk in investing?

Zoey: Yeah, I think it’s when investors use strategies or products that limit their potential losses to a predetermined amount.

Zoey: How do investors implement limited risk strategies?

Joe: They can use options, stop-loss orders, or diversification to minimize potential losses while still participating in market gains.

Zoey: Are there any downsides to limited risk strategies?

Zoey: So, it’s a trade-off between protecting against losses and maximizing returns?

Joe: Exactly. It’s about finding the right balance based on individual risk tolerance and investment objectives.

Zoey: Thanks for explaining that, Joe. Limited risk strategies seem like a smart approach for managing risk in investments.
