A WORD ABOUT RISK

Investing involves risk, including the possible loss of principal. There is no guarantee a fund will achieve its stated objective. Security prices fluctuate in value depending on general market and economic conditions and the prospects of individual companies. Small-cap securities can have greater risks and volatility than large-cap securities The main risk of real estate related securities is that the value of the underlying real estate may decrease in value.
