It is shown that the addition of positive mass-squared terms to gauge-Yukawa theo- ries with perturbative UV fixed points leads to calculable radiative symmetry break- ing in the IR (while not disturbing the fixed point). This phenomenon, and the multiplicative running of the operators that lies behind it, is akin to the radiative symmetry breaking that occurs in the Supersymmetric Standard Model.
