Asset Risk


The measure of an asset's default potential or market value fluctuation. For example, assume a firm's investment portfolio includes grain futures purchased on the Chicago Board of Trade (CBOT). The asset risk is the risk associated with the overall robustness of the grain futures market and the default potential of the investment.
