That deviation can be positive or negative, and relates to the idea of "no pain, no gain" - to achieve higher returns in the long run you have to accept more short-term instability. Risk is barrier to success of every business. In other words It is the possibility of loss. In every industry if you want to achieve success you have to manage risk efficiently, because risk is a major problem when you going to invest your money in any business.

The purpose of this research is to identify the risk of investment in Textile sector of Pakistan and then how to manage this risk.

Literature review:
For the sake to cover this topic we read different articles and found some useful information which is stated below; According to Professor Caspar Rose Operational risk occur when internal processes and operating system fails. There are many types of operational risk like IT fails, fraud, internal or external theft etc. The operation risk can be minimized by three different ways one is The basic indicator approach second is The standard approach and third is Advance measurement approach (AMA).In the time of economic crises there may some high risks like trading, fraud, misspelling, wrong advice etc (Journal of IT and Investment Management, (April 2009). Shapiro and Titman (1998) said that a firms total risk consist of two type of risks one is market risk and second is specific risk. Market risk tell about how much your firms stock price risky to the market and specific risk tell stock price movements which are specific to the firm. Professor herve corvellec conduct a research and found some information in which he state that there are two claims of risk management first is Administration of risk management to be taken from management theories while second is Risk management practices do not need to be clear but can be fixed in the managerial plans, De certeau (1990). Many scholars give more attention to find the ways of how can any organizations minimize the risk. Business leaders also have to identify and understand the changing nature of risk in the world, Cleary and Malleret, (2008). For this purpose there are many managerial tools to avoid the risk. There are two tools used to manage risk one is use management theories second is management practice. Management theories are very important to manage the risk but without management practice it cannot fully avoid the risk. So, both of management tools are important and related with each other. (after lipsky (1980)). The majority of institutions have no intention of changing in future. The primary key to improve risk management functions is to increase the strategic influence of risk function. Most people believe that financial crises are increase due to increase in investment in staff and in competencies, Global Investment Management Risk Survey, (2009). If risk manager do not succeed to identify the risk correctly then the original risk will cause the loss, (Green and Trieschmann, 1984). If we miss any good possibility that we can seek is also big loss (Dickson an Hastings, 1989). If we identify the main problem at start then we can handle it efficiently and it cannot be barrier in future for our business success. It is possible to observe not only the internal but also external environment and check how your organization is effecting on environment as well as how environment is effecting to your organization.
