There are many types of risk in finance, but in general it is the probability of actual returns being less than expected returns. Investors should always carefully consider an investment’s objectives, risks, and fees before investing. Although stable value investment options generally seek to preserve investor capital, provide liquidity, and generate a steady, positive return, it is important to recognize that all investments, including a stable value investment option, have risks, some of which may be unique, including the potential risk of loss of some or all of an investment. There is no guarantee that any investment option, including a stable value investment option, will achieve its investment objective.
