Any investment contains an element of risk. There are some risks that an investor can control and others they can only guard against. General economic factors, inflation, market value fluctuations, and general conservatism are all risks to every investment.

It is important to make well-informed investments based on thorough research to minimize your risk. It is also important to speak with a financial advisor to better understand these risks and market terminology. An advisor can help you make better decisions for your long-term portfolio.
