Asset allocation does not ensure a profit or protect against a loss. Investing involves risk and investors may incur a profit or a loss. There is an inverse relationship between interest rate movements and fixed income prices. Generally, when interest rates rise, fixed income prices fall and when interest rates fall, fixed income prices rise. International investing involves special risks, including currency fluctuations, different financial accounting standards, and possible political and economic volatility. Declines in the value of real estate, economic conditions, property taxes, tax laws and interest rates all present potential risks to real estate investments. Alternative investments involve specific risks that may be greater than those associated with traditional investments and may be offered only to clients who meet specific suitability requirements, including minimum-net-worth tests.

Investing in securities denominated in currencies other than the US Dollar involves certain considerations comprising both risk and opportunity not typically associated with investing in US securities.

Fixed-income investments are subject to various risks, including changes in interest rates, credit quality, market valuations, liquidity, prepayments, corporate events, tax ramifications, and other factors. Please discuss these and other factors with your account executive before investing in these products. Bonds are subject to changes in interest rates, risk of defaults by the issuer , and the loss of purchasing power due to inflation.
While such a strategy does not guarantee a profit or against loss, a diversified portfolio can minimize these risks because the risk is distributed over a variety of investments. In a well-balanced investment portfolio, some holdings may be negatively affected by market changes, while others may have a positive reaction, thus balancing the portfolio. Virtually all investments have some degree of risk. When investing in bonds, it’s important to remember that an investment’s return is linked to its risk
Risks common to most all bonds include:
- Credit Risk – financial risk that the issuer will not be able to repay the principal upon maturity as promised
- Call Risk – longer-term bonds are usually callable. The bonds may be called before the maturity date if interest rates decrease
- Market Risk – if the bond must be sold before the maturity date, the bond may be worth more or less than the face value depending on interest rate movements.
- Inflation Risk – recognizes the value of assets or of income will be eroded as inflation shrinks the value of a country’s currency.
- Liquidity Risk – some securities are very hard to sell if there is a thin trading market or if the bond is relatively unknown.
REITs are generally long-term, illiquid investment that is not suitable for all investors. Share redemption is limited, and there currently is no active trading market for shares. REIT’s are subject to various risks such as real estate market conditions including demand, which can increase the purchase price of properties we intend to acquire, and the product’s fees and expenses will impact total performance. There is no guarantee that REIT’s will meet their stated investment objectives.
