Loss protection is key for today's investors

In post-Great Recession times, investors are looking for asset protection of the strongest form. It may come as no surprise that most would prefer a financial product with no potential loss than a product with unlimited potential growth and unlimited potential loss. 

That's according to a recent study by Allianz Life, which surveyed investors over age 25 with at least $200,000 in investable assets. In "Allianz Life 2013 Investor Market Perceptions Study," more than three quarters of those surveyed said they'd prefer a product that offers a balance of up to 10 percent potential growth with a level of protection that shelters them from up to 10 percent of losses.
