  • 14. Think about fixed income Average maturity There are risks associated with fixed income investments, including credit risk, interest rate risk, and prepayment and extension risk. In general, bond prices rise when interest rates fall and vice versa. Short Medium Long Treasury/ agency Investment-grade corporate Below investment grade Quality [
  • 15. Think about equities Style Average maturity There are heightened risks associated with small cap, mid cap, and international investing. Small and midsized companies may be less liquid and their stocks may have greater price volatility than those of larger, more established companies. Investing in stocks involves risks, including possible loss of principal, and fluctuation in value. Investment decisions should always be made based on an investor’s specific financial needs, objectives, goals, time horizon and risk tolerance. Past performance does not guarantee future results. Investors should consider the investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses of a mutual fund carefully before investing. For a free prospectus, which contains this and other important information about the funds, call your financial advisor or visit ameriprise.com. Read the prospectus carefully before investing.

  • 16. Investment behaviors > Have a long time horizon > Diversify > Think about asset allocation > Dollar-cost averaging Diversification helps you spread risk throughout your portfolio, so investments that do poorly may be balanced by others that do relatively better. Diversification is not a guarantee of overall portfolio profit and does not protect against loss. Dollar-cost averaging does not assure a profit or protect against loss in declining markets. Investors should consider their ability to continue investing through periods of low market prices.

Lehman Brothers Aggregate Bond Index, an unmanaged index, is made up of a representative list of government, corporate, asset-backed and mortgage-backed securities. The index is frequently used as a general measure of bond market performance. Standard & Poor’s 500 Index (S&P 500 Index), an unmanaged list of common stocks, is frequently used as a general measure of market performance. The index reflects reinvestment of all distributions and changes in market prices, but excludes brokerage commissions or other fees. Morgan Stanley Capital International EAFE Index, an unmanaged index, is compiled from a composite of securities markets of Europe, Australia and the Far East. The index is widely recognized by investors in foreign markets as the measurement index for portfolios of non-North American securities. The index reflects reinvestment of all distributions and changes in market prices, but excludes brokerage commissions or other fees. The Citigroup one-month U.S. Treasury Bill Index, an unmanaged index, represents the performance of one-month Treasury bills. The index reflects reinvestment of all distributions and changes in market prices, but excludes brokerage commissions or other fees. The Dow Jones Wilshire Real Estate Investment Trust Index includes equity owners and operators of commercial and/or residential real estate.
