investment risk

Investing for the long-term means persisting through market swings. By selling during times of volatility and missing out when the markets turn back up, investors' portfolios could underperform. Instead, investors should consider these funds that can potentially help during times of volatility.

  • With stock markets near all-time highs, lower-risk core bonds can offer diversification benefits and help mitigate risk in case of a sell-off.1
  • Lower volatility equity strategies can help provide returns with less risk.
