Only six per cent of British savers are risk-takers when it comes to their investments, new research from Aegon has found.
The majority, 56%, said that their risk appetite is either low or zero, and they prefer minimal potential losses with modest gains.
Most British savers surveyed preferred cash over equities.
These attitudes can hurt overly-cautious investors, however, as they can see their savings stagnate.
