It's a term you learned in physics class for a property of matter that remains in an existing state of rest or motion, unless that state is changed by an external force. You may have guessed it—your biggest competitor is inertia, and you are the external force.

Investing involves risk, including the risk of loss. There generally is limited public information about municipal issuers. As interest rates rise, the value of certain income investments is likely to decline. Investments in debt instruments may be affected by changes in the creditworthiness of the issuer and are subject to the risk of nonpayment of principal and interest. The value of income securities also may decline because of real or perceived concerns about the issuer’s ability to make principal and interest payments. The value of equity securities is sensitive to stock market volatility. Investing primarily in responsible investments carries the risk that, under certain market conditions, a strategy may under-perform others that do not utilize a responsible investment strategy. In evaluating a company, the Advisor is dependent upon information and data that may be incomplete, inaccurate or unavailable, which could cause the Advisor to incorrectly assess a company’s ESG performance. Option Strategy Risk – The effectiveness of an option strategy depends on a general imbalance of natural buyers over natural sellers of index options. This imbalance could decrease or be eliminated, which could have an adverse effect on a client portfolio. Taxes - Market conditions may limit the ability to generate tax losses or to generate dividend income taxed at favorable tax rates. The ability to utilize various tax-managed techniques may be curtailed or eliminated in the future by tax legislation or regulation. Investing entails risks, and there can be no assurance that Eaton Vance (and its affiliates) will achieve profits or avoid incurring losses.
