Assessing Risk
Virtually all investments have some degree of risk. When investing in bonds, it is important to remember that an investment’s return is linked to its risk. Generally speaking, the higher the risk, the higher the return. Conversely, relatively safe investments typically offer lower returns. Investors should consult with a financial and/or tax advisor to determine which bonds meet their investment objectives.
