A principal may be tied up for a long time, resulting in lost income by not investing in other securities. Interest rate fluctuations cause bond prices to change, potentially resulting in lost income by having money locked into a lower-interest bond and not being able to invest in a higher-interest bond.
Other risk considerations include credit risk, exchange rate risk for sovereign or international bonds, liquidity risk, inflation risk, default risk, mark to market risk and interest rate risk for longer-dated securities.

Past performance is not indicative of future results and prices and values can go up or down. Investors investing in funds denominated in non-local currency should be aware of the risk of exchange rate fluctuations that may cause a loss of principal when foreign currency is converted back to the investors' home currency. Investors should therefore determine whether any foreign currency investment is suitable for them in light of their personal investment objectives, financial means and risk profile.
