Asset allocation and diversification do not assure or guarantee better performance and cannot eliminate the risk of investment losses.

Fixed income securities are subject to availability and market fluctuation. These securities may be worth less than the original cost upon redemption.

Investing in foreign securities presents certain risks that may not be present in domestic securities, including: currency fluctuation, the potential for diplomatic and political instability, regulatory and liquidity risks, foreign taxation, and differences in auditing and other financial standards. These risks are generally intensified in emerging markets.

Past performance does not indicate future results. The value or income associated with a security or an investment may fluctuate. There is always the potential for loss as well as gain.

Some alternative investments and complementary strategies may be available to pre-qualified investors only.
