Integrating fixed income strategies into your portfolio
Your portfolio should work for you in propelling both your short- and long-term goals, and preserving the wealth you’ve worked diligently to grow. Fixed income investments are an essential component of a well-diversified financial plan and can help support your aspirations with a reliable stream of income.
With a deep understanding of bonds and fixed income investments, we can help you integrate these core investments into your custom financial plan using a process that is defined, focused and disciplined – the characteristics needed to help preserve your hard-earned wealth, while striving to provide predictable cash flow now and in the future.
Fixed-income securities are exposed to various risks including but not limited to credit (risk of default or principal and interest payments), market and liquidity, interest rate, reinvestment, legislative (changes to the tax code), and call risks.
There is an inverse relationship between interest rate movements and fixed income prices. Generally, when interest rates rise, fixed income prices fall and when interest rates fall, fixed income prices generally rise. If bonds are sold prior to maturity, you may receive more or less than your initial investment.
Diversification and asset allocation do not ensure a profit or protect against a loss.
