A rate used to discount returns of high-risk investments is termed a risk-adjusted discount rate. This rate is used to calculate the net present value of the risky investment. The risk-adjusted discount rate calculator is an online aid in such calculation. It signifies that even though the chances of losses are higher in an investment being a high-risk investment, it tends to earn a higher return. The risk-adjusted discount rate is more appropriate for risk-averse investors who are willing to invest in a project with high risk.
