### Random information on the term “RISK”:

Statistical risk is a quantification of a situation’s risk using statistical methods. These methods can be used to estimate a probability distribution for the outcome of a specific variable, or at least one or more key parameters of that distribution, and from that estimated distribution a risk function can be used to obtain a single non-negative number representing a particular conception of the risk of the situation.

Statistical risk is taken account of in a variety of contexts including finance and economics, and there are many risk functions that can be used depending on the context.

One measure of the statistical risk of a continuous variable, such as the return on an investment, is simply the estimated variance of the variable, or equivalently the square root of the variance, called the standard deviation. Another measure in finance, one which views upside risk as unimportant compared to downside risk, is the downside beta. In the context of a binary variable, a simple statistical measure of risk is simply the probability that a variable will take on the lower of two values.
