Risks to Consider: 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. Investments in multinational companies generally pose greater risks than those of domestic companies, including market, liquidity, currency, and political risks. While growth stocks are subject to the daily ups and downs of the stock market, their long-term potential as well as their volatility can be substantial. 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 in international investing, including those related to currency fluctuations and foreign, political, and economic events. These risks can be greater in the case of emerging country securities. No investing strategy can overcome all market volatility or guarantee future results.
Each portfolio is actively managed and may change significantly over time.
