In general, as rates rise, the price of a fixed rate bond will fall, and vice versa. Interest rate risk is commonly measured by the bond's duration.
Investment Risk

                                                                                OR
Possibility of a reduction in value of an insurance instrument resulting from a decrease in the value of the assets incorporated in the investment portfolio underlying the insurance instrument. This reduction can also be effected by a change in the interest rate.
Question No: 30    ( Marks: 3 )
What is risk averse assumption?
When we talk in terms of risk averse, we know that most investors are psychologically risk averse. In case of two investments offer with the same prospective return most investor would choose the one with the lower risk or standard deviation or spread or votality. In other words most of the investors are not major gamblers. Gamblers would choose that project which appeals to investors greed by offering upsite return of 30% plus 10% = 40%. The consequences on the share price, the higher the risk of share the higher its rate of return and the lower its market price, so any investor will choose surely with the low risk and he will take care of very closely risk averse assumption while finalizing any project.
Question No: 31    ( Marks: 5 )
How negatively correlated investments behave in a market?
Solution:
If Ro = - 1.0, it means that Investments are Perfectly Negatively Correlated and the Returns (or Prices or Values) of the 2 Investments move in Exactly Opposite directions. In this Ideal Case, All Risk can be diversified away. For example, if the price of one stock increases by 50% then the price of another stock goes down by 50%.
Question No: 32    ( Marks: 5 )
