Investment Risk and Volatility
Volatility and risk are different concepts, but both have a role in determining your investment success. Volatility is simply how much the market will increase or decrease, whereas risk is the amount of loss or gain you are willing to accept. The volatility of your investments is often a result of the level of risk you are willing to accept. During periods of market volatility, it is important to stay focused on your asset allocation goals according to your predetermined risk profile.
Volatility is simply short-term instability which can affect all investments, including good equity funds, because of fear generated in the markets.

Annuities as an Investment
An annuity is a simple retirement option you can use to create income. In exchange for a sum of money, you receive income payments made up of interest and principal that is determined by your age (and in certain cases, your spouse’s age), current interest rates, the length of time the payments is guaranteed for and the amount of money used to purchase the annuity.
Annuities can offer the highest guaranteed income amount from an investment at the time of planning. They are an great choice for an investor who wants to help cover essential expenses in retirement, prefers a guaranteed income stream, is concerned about outliving his or her savings, wants to reduce tax on investment income or subsidize early retirement income. It is also useful where an investor wants to fund a child’s ongoing educational costs.
