A fresh, totally new,"Game-changing," and holistic way to quickly & easily better understand, "demystify," and manage the ever evolving risks of our rapidly changing, increasingly less certain world.


Learn how to reduce the likelihood and/or impact of almost any type of risk, plus convert risks that actually materialize from painful and costly negative surprises into minor inconveniences or even potential opportunities.

Most investors get wise to risk only after the damage has been done. Savvy investors know that risk management is the whole game. Michael Carpenter’s superb new book, The Risk-Wise Investor, could save you much heartache, not to mention many dollars.”    Don Phillips,  Managing Director, Morningstar

This step-by-step, first-of-its-kind, breakthrough method demystifies and simplifies the needlessly complex, often intimidating and emotionally charged topics of risk and risk management.

The easy to use, and highly effective "Risk-Wise"® method does so by introducing a powerful, user-friendly, and nontechnical way to address and "neutralize" almost any risk, based on first understanding the "true nature" of risk itself.

The "Risk-Wise"® method is based on first re-familiarizing  you with your very own, time-tested, ingrained and practical, everyday human “life-risk” management process. It then guides you step-by-step through how to apply that very same reliable & well-tested internalized methodology you've intuitively used throughout your life to more effectively address almost any risk you may face in the future.

Becoming "Risk-Wise"® helps you take the mystery & the fear out of better understanding, managing, preparing for and even neutralizing the diverse, and ever evolving risks of our rapidly changing, less stable, more complex, interconnected, and increasingly less certain world.

     The "Risk-Wise"® Method shows you how to:

  • Use a new, empowering definition of “RISK” that makes managing almost any risk(s) much easier and more effective
  • Reduce the likelihood & impact of painful, negative surprises of all types
  • Convert those risks that actually materialize from possible traumatic nightmares & disasters into mere inconveniences, and even potential opportunities
  • Quickly & easily determine which risks to avoid, which to accept and manage, and which risk to accept outright
  • Gain greater control over the risks you face, rather than have those risks control you
  • Use knowledge and understanding to "tilt" the risk/reward equation to your own, personal advantage
  • Reduce much of the fear & risk normally associated with risk management
  • Become a more confident, knowledgeable, ready-for-anything, "Risk-Wise"® individual, business person, professional & investor

“Risk awareness, risk management, and risk control are the sine qua non of successful asset allocation and investment strategy...Michael Carpenter has done the global investment realm a HUGE service by bringing this essential discipline front and center. We’ve needed a book like this for a long time!”     David M.Darst, Chief Investment Strategist, Morgan Stanley Global Wealth Mgm't
