My name is Helen and I'm a #risk addict.
No, not taking risks, but discussing the often misunderstood topic. It particularly interests me in the realm of property as it is often not clearly categorised nor called risk.
In fact I was talking about it just this morning with Yann Murciano CEO of Blend Network who was giving me a great overview of how his platform assesses and manages their risk and #duediligence process (another favourite subject of mine).
The topic also came up in last weekend's highly entertaining Facebook live with Jay Howard, Piotr Rusinek, Ross Harper, and Adam G Lawrence. Jay Howard gave his expert insight into auction selection to optimise the chance of selling your property. This correlates directly to risk pricing in the way I look at the world. Indeed mispriced risk is exactly what I would be looking for if I were to make a purchase at auction.
Seems I'm not alone in my interest in risk as I've been inundated with requests for the link to the post that I referred to in last week's Baker Street Property Live with hostRanjan Bhattacharyaand fellow guests Matt Siddell and Mike Frisby. I touched on the subject of the capital stack and appropriate risk / reward. So am re-sharing the original post, which I hope sheds a bit of light on the subject.
