* There is no guarantee that any of the portfolios or models in a product will meet their stated goals or investment objectives. Investments are subject to market risk and loss of principal. The investment return and principal value of an investment will fluctuate, and when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. The portfolios represented on the Risk and Return Relationship graph are not based on the actual investment experience or portfolio results of any client. No investment strategy can guarantee a profit or protect against loss. As with any type of portfolio structuring, however, attempting to reduce risk and increase return could at certain times unintentionally reduce returns.

2Although stocks have historically outperformed bonds, they also have historically been more volatile. Investors should carefully consider their ability to invest during volatile periods in the market.

3Exchange traded funds (ETFs) are subject to risks similar to those of stocks. Investment returns will fluctuate and are subject to market volatility, so that an investor's shares, when redeemed or sold, may be worth more or less than their original cost. ETFs are traded on the secondary market, like stocks. As a result, shares of an exchange traded fund may trade at a premium or discount to the fund's actual net asset value, particularly during periods of market volatility. The performance of an exchange traded fund may vary from the market index it attempts to replicate due to market volatility, transaction costs, valuation differences, differences between the assets held in the exchange traded fund's portfolio relative to the market index, and other factors.
