Appetite for risk returns to the investment markets

A report by Bank of America Merrill Lynch has today confirmed that investors are now regaining an appetite for risk with many investors willing to take more of a chance with their investments in the short to medium term. Despite the fact that the UK, US and other economies around the world are still feeling the after-effects of the credit crunch and the economic downturn it seems that some investors are in a rush to take undue risks.

There is the potential for many investors to get their fingers burnt in the short to medium term chasing shares and investments to unsustainable levels. Despite governments around the world asking investors and fund managers to reduce their risk profiles it seems that these calls are falling on deaf ears. While it may take some time to emerge, we could potentially be at the start of yet another asset bubble which could go pop at any time!

Despite the fact that many investors have lost significant amounts of money over the last three years it seems that some automatically assume that we are now back on the growth path. However, governments around the world will take years if not decades to repay borrowings which have been taken out to inject growth into economies and this will have an impact on economic growth. It may only take the slightest disappointment from say the U.S. economy or the UK economy to send ripples across world markets.
