As managers of a U.S. debt investment strategy, we try to plan for unexpected events, manage risks and seek stable sources of return for our investors. Mortgages, car loans and railroad car loans may seem boring or ordinary—but we find plenty of excitement in the pursuit of stability for investors.
Watch the video above on how we created our Oppenheimer Limited-Term Bond Fund.
Limited-Term Bond Fund special risks: Fixed income investing entails credit and interest rate risks. When interest rates rise, bond prices generally fall, and the Fund’s share prices can fall. Below-investment-grade (“high yield” or “junk”) bonds are more at risk of default and are subject to liquidity risk. Asset-backed securities are subject to prepayment risk. Mortgage-backed securities are subject to prepayment risk. Mortgage bonds are susceptible to risks such as default and prepayment of principal and are taxable at the state and federal levels. U.S. Government securities are backed by the full faith and credit of the U.S. Government, meaning, that payment of interest and principal is guaranteed, but yield and market value are not. Derivative instruments entail higher volatility and risk of loss compared to traditional stock or bond investments. Foreign investments may be volatile and involve additional expenses and special risks, including currency fluctuations, foreign taxes, regulatory and geopolitical risks. Emerging and developing market investments may be especially volatile.
