Equities
Buying shares for the long term

When you invest in equities (also called stocks), you buy a share in a company and become a shareholder. Equities are typically more appropriate for long-term investing – for those who can ride out the highs and lows of the market in search of higher rewards.

Fixed income
Seeking stable, lower risk returns

Fixed income securities, or bonds, are issued by companies and governments as a way of raising money. They’re basically an ‘I.O.U’ – designed to provide a regular stream of income (which is normally a fixed amount) over a specified period of time.

Equity risk
The value of equities and equity-related securities can be affected by daily stock market movements. Other influential factors include political, economic news, company earnings and significant corporate events.

Fixed income risk
Two main risks related to fixed income investing are interest rate risk and credit risk. Typically, when interest rates rise, there is a corresponding decline in the market value of bonds. Credit risk refers to the possibility that the issuer of the bond will not be able to repay the principal and make interest payments.
