Investing involves risk. The value of an investment and income from it may fall or rise. Investors may not get back the full amount invested. Investments in fixed income securities may involve various risks to investors, including but not limited to credit risk, interest rate risk, liquidity risk and risk of limited flexibility. Changes in the economic environment and market conditions may affect these risks, which may adversely affect the value of the investments. In times of rising nominal interest rates, the values of fixed income securities (including positions relating to short-term fixed income instruments) are generally expected to decline. Conversely, in times of falling interest rates, the values of fixed income securities are generally expected to increase. Liquidity risks may potentially result in account disbursements or repayments being delayed or not possible at all.
