All portfolios also have the ability, at the investment manager’s discretion, to invest up to 5% of assets in cash or cash-type securities (high-quality, short-term debt securities issued by corporations, financial institutions, the U.S. government, or foreign governments).

EdVest portfolios may invest in stock and bond investments. Stock investments should only be considered for long-term goals as values fluctuate in response to the activities of individual companies and general market and economic conditions. Bond investment values fluctuate in response to the financial condition of individual issuers, general market and economic conditions, and changes in interest rates. In general, when interest rates rise, bond investment values fall and investors may lose principal value. Consult a program description for additional information on these and other risks.
