A Word About Risk: Equities have tended to be volatile, and do not offer a fixed rate of return. Treasury inflation-protected securities (TIPS), issued by the US government, are Treasury securities indexed to inflation whose principal value is periodically adjusted according to the rate of inflation. Repayment upon maturity of the adjusted principal value of TIPS is guaranteed by the US government. TIPS decline in value when real interest rates rise.
