A Note about Risk: As interest rates rise, the prices of debt securities tend to fall; as rates fall, prices tend to rise. The value of a portfolio will change as interest rates fluctuate. Municipal securities may include insured municipal securities that are covered by insurance policies that guarantee the timely payment of principal and interest. Insurance does not pertain to yield or market values, which will fluctuate over the life of bonds. Income from municipal bonds may be subject to the alternative minimum tax. Federal, state, and local taxes may apply. Although these are the main risks of investing in bonds, there may be other risks associated with investing in bonds, such as credit, inflation, call, high-yield, and market risks. An investor should consult with his or her investment professional before making an investment decision.
