Eat Well, Sleep Well

Eat Well, Sleep Well

Informal; a phrase used to describe the difference between a high risk portfolio and a low risk portfolio. One with a high risk portfolio eats well because there is a possibility of a high return, granting the investor a more luxurious lifestyle. On the other hand, one with a low risk portfolio sleeps well because he/she does not need to worry about the possibility of losing one's investment in the way one taking more risks does.
