Loss Avoidance

Loss Avoidance

The strategy in which one does not take a position in order to guarantee that a loss does not occur. For example, one may decide not to purchase a house in order to guarantee that one never has to pay to repair the roof. Loss avoidance, however, guarantees no profit. As a result, investors seek to hedge risk rather than avoid it altogether.
