Fixed Income

International Bond

    Fixed income investing entails credit and interest rate risks. Interest rate risk is the risk that rising interest rates or an expectation of rising interest rates in the near future, will cause the value of a portfolio's investments to decline. Risks associated with rising interest rates are heightened given that rates in the U.S. are at or near historic lows. When interest rates rise, bond prices generally fall, and the value of the portfolio can fall. Below-investment-grade (“high yield” or "junk") bonds are more at risk of default and are subject to liquidity risk. 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. Eurozone investments may be subject to volatility and liquidity issues. Derivative instruments entail higher volatility and risk of loss compared to traditional stock or bond investments. Currency derivative investments may be volatile and involve significant risks. Small and mid-sized company stock is typically more volatile than that of larger company stock. It may take a substantial period of time to realize a gain on an investment in a small-sized or mid-sized company, if any gain is realized at all. The Portfolio is classified as a “non-diversified” portfolio and may invest a greater portion of its assets in the securities of a single issuer.  Regulation S securities are privately offered securities, may be illiquid, and involve a high degree of risk which may result in substantial losses to the portfolio.
