  1. risk-free

    Risk-free refers to the presumed absence of any sort of danger, risk or potential loss in a particular situation or investment. It typically implies that there is a guarantee of return on an investment and minimal chance of losing any of the initial capital. The term is mainly used in finance to describe specific assets, like U.S. Treasury Bills, which are considered virtually risk-free due to the solidity of the institution backing them. However, truly risk-free investments are theoretical, as every investment carries at least a minimal amount of risk.
