A:

A. Regulatory risk.

B. Market risk.

C. Liquidity risk.

D. Business risk.






Correct answer: B

Business risk is minimized with a diversified fund, and liquidity is not an issue for a fund that redeems shares each day at the NAV. But an index fund cannot protect an investor from market risk.
