Past performance is not a reliable indicator of future performance.
Bonds generally present less short-term risk and volatility than stocks, but contain interest rate risk (as interest rates raise, bond prices usually fall); issuer default risk; issuer credit risk; liquidity risk; and inflation risk. These effects are usually pronounced for longer-term securities. Any fixed income security sold or redeemed prior to maturity may be subject to a substantial gain or loss.
Sample portfolio returns shown above are hypothetical and are based on the returns of the underlying market indices in the proportions shown above. The methodology used was taking the Bloomberg US Corporate Index, dividing it into quintiles from lowest to highest Value score, and measuring the returns. The Value score is a proprietary relative value score from Barclays QPS. Market indices are unmanaged and not subject to fees and expenses, which would lower returns. Neither index performance nor sample portfolio performance is intended to represent the performance of any particular mutual fund, exchange-traded fund, or product offered by SSGA. SSGA has not managed any accounts or assets in the strategies represented by the sample portfolios. Actual performance may differ substantially from the hypothetical performance presented. Past performance is not a guarantee of future results.
All the index performance results referred to are provided exclusively for comparison purposes only. It should not be assumed that they represent the performance of any particular investment.
