Nonsystematic risk results from unpredictable factors, such as poor management decisions, successful competitive products, or suddenly obsolete technologies that may affect the securities issued by a particular company or group of similar companies.
Portfolio diversification, which means spreading your investment among a number of asset subclasses and individual issuers within those subclasses, can help to counter nonsystematic risk.
