Diversification and asset allocation do not guarantee against a loss. This material is distributed for informational purposes only. The information contained herein is based on internal research derived from various sources and does not purport to be statements of all material facts relating to the information mentioned, and while not guaranteed as to the accuracy or completeness, has been obtained from sources we believe to be reliable.

Opinions, estimates, forecasts, and statements of financial market trends that are based on current market conditions constitute our judgment and are subject to change without notice. The views and strategies described may not be suitable for all investors. References to specific securities, asset classes and financial markets are for illustrative purposes only and are not intended to be, and should not be interpreted as, recommendations. Outside the U.S., this presentation is directed only at professional/sophisticated investors and it is for their exclusive use and information. Investments in overseas markets pose special risks, including currency fluctuation and political risks, and greater volatility than typically associated with U.S. investments. These risks are generally intensified for investments in emerging markets.
Indexes are unmanaged, do not entail fees or expenses and are not available for direct investment. Unless otherwise noted, index returns reflect the reinvestment of income dividends and capital gains, if any, but do not reflect fees, brokerage commissions or other expenses of investing. Investors may not make direct investments into any index. The S&P 500 Index is considered generally representative of the U.S. equity market. The ICE BofAML All U.S. Convertibles Index (VXA0) is considered generally representative of the U.S. convertible market. The Bloomberg Barclays U.S. Government/ Credit Index comprises long-term government and investment-grade corporate debt securities and is generally considered representative of the performance of the broad U.S. bond market.
Convertible securities entail interest rate risk and default risk. The price of equity securities may rise or fall because of changes in the broad market or changes in a company’s financial condition, sometimes rapidly or unpredictably. These price movements may result from factors affecting individual companies, sectors or industries. Fixed-income securities are subject to interest rate risk. If rates increase, the value of fixed-income investments generally declines.
