Permanent Portfolio invests in foreign securities, which will involve greater volatility, political, economic and currency risks, and differences in accounting methods. The Portfolio will be affected by changes in the prices of gold, silver, and stocks of U.S. and foreign real estate and natural resource companies.
Aggressive Growth Portfolio’s stocks may appreciate in value more rapidly than the stock market, but they are also subject to greater risk, especially during periods when the prices of U.S. stock market investments in general are declining. The Portfolio also invests in smaller companies, which will involve additional risks such as limited liquidity and greater volatility.
Short-Term Treasury and Versatile Bond Portfolios' investments in debt securities typically decrease in value when interest rates rise. The risk is usually greater for longer-term debt securities. Investments in below investment grade bonds (also referred to as “high yield” or “junk” bonds) present a greater risk of loss to principal and interest than higher-rated securities. Investments in foreign securities involves greater volatility and political, economic and currency risks, and differences in accounting methods. These risks are greater in emerging markets. In addition, certain investments may be illiquid and may be difficult to purchase, sell, or value. The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, or any other government agency, does not guarantee an investment in the Short-Term Treasury Portfolio. Therefore, it is possible to lose money by investing in the Short-Term Treasury Portfolio.
