Risk-neutral

Risk-neutral

Insensitive to risk.

Risk Neutral

A situation in which an investor effectively ignores risk in making investment decisions. Given two investments with different levels of riskiness, a risk neutral investor considers only the expected return from each investment. As such, being risk neutral differs significantly from both risk aversion and risk seeking.
