Risk capital

Risk capital Definition

In finance, risk capital has two meanings:

  1. capital which the investor is prepared to risk losing, and can therefore invest in ways that offer a high expected return, but also a significant risk of failure. Typical outlets include startup companies or futures and options contracts.
  2. Capital which is held in safe, liquid, but low-income forms, to act as a buffer against unexpected financial problems. An enterprise with inadequate risk capital may face insolvency due to a short-term shock even if its long-term finances are healthy.
