In this YouTube video Rogers talks about what being risk aware really means. "Be sensitive to risk after prices have appreciated. Be aware of the risk you're taking when you make a new investment because valuations are higher. The global backdrop is much higher. As we've briefly mentioned, with higher prices come higher risk."

Cheers to your investment success.
