Investing involves risk.  The value of your investment will fluctuate over time and you may gain or lose money.  Asset allocation and diversification cannot ensure a profit or protect against loss. 

ETFs are subject to market fluctuation and the risks of their underlying investments.  ETFs are subject to management fees and other expenses.  Unlike mutual funds, ETF shares are bought and sold at market price, which may be higher or lower than their NAV. ETFs are redeemable only in creation units and may not be individually redeemed.  Before investing, consider the investment objectives, risks, charges, and expenses of the ETFs.  Stock markets are volatile and can decline significantly in response to adverse issuer, political, regulatory, market, or economic developments.  In general, the bond market is volatile, and fixed income securities carry interest rate risk. (As interest rates rise, bond prices usually fall, and vice versa. This effect is usually more pronounced for longer-term securities.) Fixed income securities also carry inflation risk, liquidity risk, call risk, and credit and default risks for both issuers and counterparties. Unlike individual bonds, most bond funds do not have a maturity date, so holding them until maturity to avoid losses caused by price volatility is not possible.
