Any business discussion where a group of people need to make a decision must involve a discussion of possible risks. When describing a risk in business, it's important to use appropriate language and not be too negative.
The language below is very useful when describing or discussing risk in business. The speaker isn't too negative. He begins by saying that he sees some benefits, but then points out the possible risk.
Basically, he tries to balance his fear or his worry about the risk with something positive. This is a professional way to express this kind of idea. By talking about something positive and a risk, his colleagues will probably listen to his ideas.
