Investing involves risks. Some investments have more risk than others. The investment return and principal value will fluctuate and the investment, when sold, may be worth more or less than the original cost and it is possible to lose money. Past performance is not a guarantee of future results. Since no one manager/investment program is suitable for all types of investors, this material is provided for informational purposes only. Fixed income investments are subject to interest rate risk, where their value will decline as interest rates rise.
