This is not a complete analysis of every material fact regarding any company, industry or security. Fixed income is generally considered to be a more conservative investment than stocks, but bonds and other fixed income investments still carry a variety of risks such as interest rate risk, credit risk, inflation risk and liquidity risk. In a rising interest rate environment, the value of fixed income securities generally declines and conversely, in a falling interest rate environment, the value of fixed income securities generally increases. High-yield securities may be subject to heightened market, interest rate or credit risk and should not be purchased solely because of the stated yield. Municipal securities investments are not appropriate for all investors, especially those taxed at lower rates. All investments carry some level of risk, including loss or principal. Past performance is no guarantee of future results. Baird does not offer tax or legal advice.
