Risk-prone

Willing to pay money to assume risk from others.

Risk-Loving

Describing an investor who is willing to take big risks to increase the potential return on investments. For example, a risk loving investor would be more likely to invest in the IPO of a company with a new and exciting product about which little is known, than to invest in a secured bond issued by a well known and widely trusted company. Critics maintain that risk loving investors accept lower returns for their risk and, as such, are not investing efficiently. See also: Markowitz efficient portfolio.
