A Note about Risk:
The value of investments in equity securities will fluctuate in response to general economic conditions and to changes in the prospects of particular companies and/or sectors in the economy. Investing in international securities generally poses greater risk than investing in domestic securities, including greater price fluctuations and higher transaction costs. Special risks are inherent to international investing including those related to currency fluctuations, foreign, political, and economic events. These risks can be greater in the case of emerging country securities. The value of fixed-income securities will change as interest rates fluctuate. As interest rates fall, the prices of debt securities tend to rise. As rates rise, prices tend to fall. Debt securities are also subject to credit risk, which is the risk that the issuer will fail to make timely payments of interest and principal. No investing strategy can overcome all market volatility or guarantee future results.
