RISK OF LOSS
Investing in securities involves risk of loss, including possible loss of principal that investors should be prepared to bear. There is no guarantee that any investment strategy will meet its objective.
Past performance is not a guarantee of future results. In addition to the general risks of investing in the stock market, our portfolios bear additional risk. We note that buying a portfolio of securities is usually thought to reduce the risk of buying one or only a few stocks. Key risks of investing in the Equity Strategies include:
Equity Risk. (All strategies) The value of equity securities may fall due to general market and economic conditions, perceptions regarding the industries in which the issuers participate, or factors relating to specific companies.
Small Cap Company Risk. (Small/Mid Cap Growth, All Cap Growth) Smaller companies may be subject to more abrupt or erratic market movements and may have lower trading volumes or more erratic trading than larger, well-established companies.
Large Cap Company Risk. (Large Cap Growth, All Cap Growth, Dividend Growth) Larger, more established companies may be unable to attain the high growth rates of successful, small companies during periods of economic expansion.
Foreign Investment Risk. (All strategies) Prices of foreign securities (including ADRs) may be more volatile compared to U.S. securities due to economic and social conditions abroad, political developments, and changes in regulatory environments. They are more likely to be subject to currency fluctuation risks. Some of the same considerations apply for U.S. based businesses with significant operations abroad.
Sector Concentration Risk. (All strategies) We may overweight certain sectors making the portfolios more susceptible to negative events affecting those sectors.
Management and Strategy Risk. (All strategies) Each actively managed account is subject to management risk. Investment strategies used by the Firm may not be successful. Portfolio management decisions require judgment and are based on imperfect information. Oak Ridge Investments, LLC’s portfolio managers will apply investment techniques and risk analyses in making investment decisions for actively managed accounts, but there can be no guarantee that these decisions will produce the desired results.
Market Risks. (All strategies) Investing in securities involves risk that the overall market will perform poorly or that the returns from the securities in which a client invests will underperform returns from the general securities markets or other types of investments. The value of investments will go up and down, sometimes rapidly and drastically, particularly in response to global events, such as health crises, war, economic cycles, political disruption, and pandemics. The profitability of a significant portion of Oak Ridge’s recommendations may depend to a great extent upon correctly assessing the future course of price movements of equity securities. There can be no assurance that Oak Ridge will be able to predict these price movements accurately.
Volatility Risks. (All strategies) The prices and values of investments can be highly volatile, and are influenced by, among other things, interest rates, general economic conditions, the condition of the financial markets, the financial condition of the issuers of such assets, changing supply and demand relationships, and programs and policies of governments.
Cash Management Risks. (All strategies) The Firm may invest some of a client’s assets temporarily in money market funds or other similar types of investments, during which time an advisory account may be prevented from achieving its investment objective.
Portfolio Turnover Risk. (All strategies) Portfolio turnover refers to the rate at which investments are replaced. The higher the rate, the higher the transactional and brokerage costs associated with the turnover which may reduce the return, unless the securities traded can be bought and sold without corresponding commission costs. Active trading of securities may also increase your realized capital gains or losses, which may affect the taxes you pay.
Concentration Risk. Concentrating investments potentially increases the risk of loss because the securities of many or all of the companies may decline in value due to developments adversely affecting the industries in which they operate.
Focused Investment Risk. An account that invests a substantial portion of its assets in a particular market, industry, group of industries, country, region, group of countries, asset class or sector generally is subject to greater risk than an account that invests in a more diverse investment portfolio. In addition, the value of such an account is more susceptible to any single economic, market, political or regulatory occurrence affecting, for example, that particular market, industry, region or sector. This is because, for example, issuers in a particular market, industry, region or sector often react similarly to specific economic, market, regulatory, or political developments.
