Important Risks: Investing involves risk, including the possible loss of principal. Security prices fluctuate in value depending on general market and economic conditions and the prospects of individual companies. • Fixed-income security risks include credit, liquidity, call, duration, event, and interest-rate risk. As interest rates rise, bond prices generally fall. • Investments linked to prices of commodities may be considered speculative. Significant exposure to commodities may subject an investor to greater volatility than traditional investments. The value of such instruments may be volatile and fluctuate widely based on a variety of factors.
