Episode Description: Why do investors consistently focus on returns rather than looking at investments from a risk perspective? Given a choice, most people would opt for minimal risk vs larger gain.  How do investors transition from buying high and selling high? Randy Kurtz believes that by focusing on the right things and having a process in place investors can realize better yields with more appropriate risks. Kurtz, founder and CEO of Betavisor, is a nationally recognized expert on risk who is obsessed with statistics, challenges conventional wisdom about risk, return, diversification, asset allocation, and financial planning. He has been profiled in Forbes, The New York Times, and The Wall Street Journal. Barron’s ranked his firm as the No. 1 performing separate accounts manager in the United States in the third quarter of 2011.  Randy is a member of Mensa.Episode Key words (Comma Separated)investments, investment risk, investment maximum yield, beat the market, market super performer
