Overall Risk

The risk rating is based on the account’s past performance as compared to mutual funds and/or ETFs within the same category. It represents a starting point from which investors evaluate if the core makes sense for their own risk tolerance, suitability, goals and objectives. It is not a buy or sell recommendation. There are many types of risk, including interest rate, market, political, and currency. Each type of risk can affect the value of the securities in your account.
