Investing in securities involves risks, including the possible loss of principal. While ETFore endeavors to provide effective risk management and asset allocation, no investment strategy can ensure profit or protect against loss in declining markets.
Risks Associated with Investing
- This is the risk that the value of securities may go up or down, sometimes rapidly or unpredictably, due to factors affecting securities markets generally or particular industries.
- This risk refers to fluctuations in the value of fixed-income investments as a result of changes in the general level of interest rates.
- This is the risk that an issuer of a security or a counterparty to a contract will default or otherwise become unable to honor a financial obligation.
- This is the risk that certain securities may be difficult or impossible to sell at the time and the price beneficial to the investor.
- Investments in foreign securities can be riskier than U.S. investments due to adverse political, social, economic, or other developments unique to a country or region.
- This is the risk that income from a fund's portfolio will decline if the fund invests the proceeds from matured, traded, or called bonds at market interest rates that fall below the portfolio's current earnings rate.
- This is the risk that the value of assets or income from investments will be less in the future as inflation decreases the value of money.
Understanding and managing market volatility is crucial for successful investing. It indicates the rate at which the price of an asset moves for a set of returns.
- 1. Volatility is often expressed as a variance or standard deviation of returns. It represents the investor's risk exposure in the market. The greater the volatility, the riskier the security
- 1. In periods of high volatility, the market price of investments can fluctuate rapidly, leading to potential profit or loss. This can result from economic events, market sentiment, or sudden changes in investor confidence.
- Managing volatility is crucial in portfolio management. At ETFore, we use various strategies to mitigate the effects of volatility, such as diversification and asset allocation.
- Despite being associated with risk, volatility can present opportunities for investors who understand it. This includes the chance to buy assets at lower prices during high volatility periods and sell at higher prices during low volatility periods.
