In dieser Arbeit soll ein einheitlicher konzeptualer Zugang zur Quantifizierung des Verlustpotentials (Risiko) eines zufallsabhängigen finanziellen Ergebnisses dargestellt werden. Die Maße des (Lower Partial Moments)-Typus sind hierin als Spezialfall enthalten. Eine solche Vorgehensweise eröffnet zugleich eine neue Interpretationsmöglichkeit von Shortfall-Risikomaßen. Zum zweiten wird die Klasse der Shortfall-Risiko-Erwartungswert (SR/E)-Kalküle vorgestellt und ihre Beziehungen zum Bernoulli-Prinzip beleuchtet. Zum dritten wird symmetrisch zur Quantifizierung des Risikopotentials durch Shortfall-Risikomaße die Quantifizierung des Gewinnpotentials (Chance) durch Excess-Chancemaße vorgeschlagen. Schließlich wird die Klasse der Shortfall-Risiko/Excess-Chance (SR/EC)-Kalküle eingeführt und auch deren Beziehungen zum Bernoulli-Prinzip untersucht.
