The returns referred to in the video are those of representative indices and are not meant to depict the performance of a specific investment. Past performance is no guarantee of future results.

The views and opinions forecasts and estimates expressed are those of the speaker as of the date of the interview and are subject to change at any time due to market or economic conditions and may not necessarily come to pass. As per the views presented by other parties, we have not verified this information, and we make no representations whatsoever as to its accuracy or completeness. Furthermore, the views will not be updated or otherwise revised to reflect information that subsequently becomes available or circumstances existing, or changes occurring, after the date of the interview. The views expressed do not reflect the opinions of all portfolio managers at Morgan Stanley Investment Management (MSIM) or the views of the firm as a whole, and may not be reflected in all the strategies and products that the Firm offers.

Investing involves risks including the possible loss of principal. Equity securities are more volatile than bonds and subject to greater risks. Fixed income is subject to credit and interest rate risks. Companies within the infrastructure industry are subject to a variety of factors that may adversely affect their business or operations. Investments in foreign markets entail special risks such as currency, political, economic, and market risks. The risks of investing in emerging markets are greater than the risks generally associated with foreign investments.

Forecasts and/or estimates provided herein are subject to change and may not actually come to pass. Information regarding expected market returns and market outlooks is based on the research, analysis and opinions of the authors. These conclusions are speculative in nature, may not come to pass and are not intended to predict the future performance of any specific Morgan Stanley Investment Management product.

All information provided has been prepared solely for information purposes and does not constitute an offer or a recommendation to buy or sell any particular security or to adopt any specific investment strategy. The information herein has not been based on a consideration of any individual investor circumstances and is not investment advice, nor should it be construed in any way as tax, accounting, legal or regulatory advice. In addition, this material is not an offer, or a solicitation of an offer, to buy or sell any security or instrument or to participate in any trading strategy.

Investing involves risks including the possible loss of principal. Fixed-income securities are subject to the ability of an issuer to make timely principal and interest payments (credit risk), changes in interest rates (interest-rate risk), the creditworthiness of the issuer and general market liquidity (market risk). In the current rising interest-rate environment, bond prices may fall and may result in periods of volatility and increased portfolio redemptions. Longer-term securities may be more sensitive to interest rate changes. In a declining interest-rate environment, the portfolio may generate less income. In general, equities securities’ values also fluctuate in response to activities specific to a company.

There is no guarantee that any investment strategy will work under all market conditions, and each investor should evaluate their ability to invest for the long-term, especially during periods of downturn in the market.  Prior to investing, investors should carefully review the strategy’s / product’s relevant offering document. There are important differences in how the strategy is carried out in each of the investment vehicles.
