Risk Assist® is NOT A GUARANTEE against loss or declines in the value of your portfolio; it is an investment strategy that supplements a more traditional strategy by periodically investing assets in a portfolio of fixed income securities based on Horizon Investments’ view of market conditions.


Asset allocation models are subject to general market risk and risks related to currency fluctuations and economic conditions. Future returns are not guaranteed, and a loss of original capital may occur.


Accounts with Risk Assist® are not fully protected against all loss. 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.

Horizon Investments makes no predictions, representations, or warranties herein as to the future performance of any portfolio. Past performance is never a guarantee of future results. There may be economic times where all investments are unfavorable and depreciate in value.
