ABSTRACT
Uncertainty may influence the investments through different channels and into different directions. The sense of this influence is still unknown. In economic literature there is a distinction between risk supposing calculations grounded on a past experience or sufficient data in order to calculate the probability of the occurrence of such an economic event and uncertainty, which more often occurs as a lack of information in a certain field, concerning the consequences of an action. It therefore results that, considering risk generates the grounding of the invetment process by linking probabilities that express the chance for achieving certain economic indicators.
