Past performance does not guarantee future results. Visuals shown are for illustrative purposes only and should not be considered a guarantee of success or a certain level of performance.

RiskAssist® is NOT A GUARANTEE against loss or declines in the value of a portfolio; it is an investment strategy that supplements a more traditional strategy by periodically modifying exposure to fixed income securities based on Horizon’s view of market conditions. While Risk Assist was designed with the goal of limiting drawdown, Horizon is not able to predict all market conditions and ensure that Risk Assist will always limit drawdown as designed. Furthermore, when Risk Assist® is deployed (whether partially or entirely) to mitigate risk for an account, the account will not be fully invested in its original strategy, and accordingly during periods of strong market growth the account may underperform accounts that do not have the Risk Assist® feature. Clients may lose money.

For clients near retirement, volatility can't be the only measure of risk. While upside growth is still important in the Protect Stage of life, learn why drawdown is the primary risk these clients face.
