The risk indicator reflects how much the value of the Fund’s assets goes up and down (volatility). A higher risk generally means higher potential returns over time, but more ups and downs along the way. The lowest risk rating doesn’t mean “risk-free” and this risk indicator is not a guarantee of a Fund’s future performance.
