Envision® methodology: Based on accepted statistical methods, the Envision tool uses a simulation model to test your Ideal, Acceptable and Recommended Investment Plans. The simulation model uses assumptions about inflation, financial market returns and the relationships among these variables. These assumptions were derived from analysis of historical data. Using Monte Carlo simulation, the Envision tool simulated 1,000 different potential outcomes over a lifetime of investing varying historical risk, return, and correlation amongst the assets. Some of these scenarios will assume strong financial market returns, similar to the best periods of history for investors.  Others will be similar to the worst periods in investing history. Most scenarios will fall somewhere in between.

Investing involves risk including the possible loss of principal.
Investments in fixed- income securities are subject to market, interest rate, credit and other risks.  Bond prices fluctuate inversely to changes in interest rates.  Therefore, a general rise in interest rates can result in the decliine in the bond's price. Credit risk is the risk that an issuer will default on payments of interest and/ or principal.  This risk is heightened in lower rated bonds.  If sold prior to maturity, fixed income securities are subject to market risk.  All fixed income investments may be worth less than their original cost upon redemption or maturity.  Asset allocation cannot eliminate the risk of fluctuating prices and uncertain returns.
Equities/ Stocks offer long-term growth potential, but may fluctuate more and provide less current income than other investments.  An investment in the stock market should be made with an understanding of the risks associated with common stocks, including market fluctuations.
