All investments carry risk, including loss of principal. In a rising interest rate environment, the value of fixed-income securities generally decline and conversely, in a falling interest rate environment, the value of fixed income securities generally increase. References to forward-looking rates of return and yield are based on research conducted by BondEdge, are for illustrative purposes only, are not meant to be a recommendation or forecast and are not based on any specific investment. The research assumes a constant yield curve slope and duration while implementing an instantaneous parallel rate shift with no change in spreads. The information provided herein does not provide investors with the information or advice that is sufficient on which to base an investment decision and does not take into account the specific investment objectives, financial situation or need of any particular client. Additional fundamental and other analyses would be required to make a decision about any investments discussed.
