Risk-Free

Describing a transaction or investment in which the return is known with certainty. The certainty generally comes from a supreme amount of confidence in the issuer of the investment; for example, Treasury securities are considered risk-free investments because the United States government is considered the best possible issuer. Critics contend that there is no such thing as a risk-free investment because, in theory, even the US government could default. However, risk-free investments have such a low level of risk that it may be ignored. Risk-free investments usually have a low rate of return and, as a result, are exposed to inflation risk.
