Fixed Income

Fixed income investments are a necessary component of a portfolio that is diversified across different asset classes. Historically, bonds have returned more than cash investments, and exhibited less volatility than stocks. As a result, adding bond investments to an all-stock portfolio generally lowers the risk of your overall portfolio. Fixed income investments also help to reduce the overall risk of your investment portfolio. Depending on the issuer, they can provide a guaranteed fixed return when held to maturity and are a source of stable cash flow. There is a wide variety of fixed income investments including government bonds and corporate bonds.
