Asset allocation and diversification do not ensure a profit or protect against a loss.

Risks of preferred securities differ from risks inherent in other investments. In particular, in a bankruptcy preferred securities are senior to common stock but subordinate to other corporate debt.

Fixed-income investments are subject to interest rate risk; as interest rates rise their value will decline.
