Risk Transfer

The reduction of risk to a position by buying an insurance policy or taking an offsetting position. For example, a person may reduce the risk of loss due to medical expenses by buying health insurance. Likewise, a person may reduce the risk of loss to a long position by entering an equal but opposite short position. See also: Hedge.
