The information contained in this website is for general informational purposes only and should not be considered an individualized recommendation or personalized investment advice.
This website contains information about mutual funds that invest in equities and/or bonds, each with different risk profiles. Funds may not be suitable for all investors. Investment involves risk. Investment value will fluctuate, and shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than original cost. Diversification strategies do not assure a profit and do not protect against losses in declining markets.
Funds may involve various risks, including but not limited to market risk, volatility risk, liquidity risk, credit risk, counterparty risk, concentration risk and risk of loss from use of financial derivatives instruments.
Some mutual funds have international investments which involve additional risks, which include differences in financial accounting standards, currency fluctuations, political instability, foreign taxes and regulations, and the potential for illiquid markets. Investing in emerging markets may accentuate these risks.
Some mutual funds may invest in single country or industry sector. These funds may involve a greater degree of risk than an investment in other mutual funds with greater diversification.
Investment techniques using financial derivative instruments may be used by some mutual funds with the aim of meeting the investment objective of the fund. Such investment policies or portfolio management techniques may lead to a higher volatility to the net asset value of the fund and can involve additional risk, including but not limited to counterparty default risk or insolvency. Do not invest in the products unless you fully understand them and are willing to assume the risks associated with them.
Schwab gives information about products and services it offers, but generally does not provide investment advice based on individual circumstances. You should consult an independent financial advisor for advice on the suitability or otherwise of the particular investment.
Investors should not only base on information contained in this website alone to make investment decisions.
