The paper attempts to characterize perceived financial investment risk using several dimensions developed during investigations made by Paul Slovic and his group in the field of ecological and health risk. The author proposes also some new scales which can be important for understanding perception of financial risk. Participants in the study were 130 students aged 21.1, on the average, (SD=2.7)who completed a survey instrument that elicited ratings for each of 9 investment possibilities on 13 characteristic scales. Factor analysis showed that there are three important dimensions of investment risk perception: 1) known risk, 2) certainty of profits and 3) reversibility of losses. The results also enabled the authors to draw a conclusion that Ss categorized every investment possibility into three groups: 1) stable investment possibilities, 2) investing in a stock market (most risky), 3) saving money (most safe).
