Due diligence processes seek to diminish, but cannot eliminate risk, nor do they imply low risk. Asset allocation, diversification and rebalancing do not guarantee a profit or protect against a loss in declining markets.

Investing in fixed-income securities may involve certain risks, including the credit quality of individual issuers, possible prepayments, market or economic developments and yields and share price fluctuations due to changes in interest rates. When interest rates go up, bond prices typically drop, and vice versa. There may be less information available on the financial condition of issuers of municipal securities than for public corporations. The market for municipal bonds may be less liquid than for taxable bonds. A portion of the income may be taxable. Some municipal security investors may be subject to Alternative Minimum Tax (AMT). Asset allocation, diversification and rebalancing do not ensure a profit or protect against loss in declining markets.

International investing involves unique risks, including foreign taxation, foreign currency fluctuation risks, risks related with possible variances in financial standards and other risks associated with potential political, social and economic developments. Investing in emerging markets may involve greater risks than investing in more developed countries. In addition, concentration of investments in a single region may result in greater volatility.
