The market value of fixed income securities will change in response to interest rate changes and market conditions among other things. In general, bond prices rise when interest rates fall and vice versa. High yield securities present more liquidity and credit risk than investment grade bonds and may be subject to greater volatility. Investments in asset-backed securities, floating rate senior secured syndicated bank loans, and other floating rate securities involve special types of risks, including credit risk, interest rate risk, liquidity risk and prepayment risk. Some asset-backed securities, including mortgage-backed securities, may have structures that make their reaction to interest rates and other factors difficult to predict, making their prices very volatile.
