Stock Investing- Investing for Growth
Growth funds invest in stocks of companies whose business is growing. Therefore, growth funds are focused on generating capital gains rather than income. Growth funds are best suited for investors who do not need current income, are focused on long-term investment strategies, and are able to assume moderate to high risk.

Bond Investing - Investing for Income
Bond funds offer investors current income. Fixed income funds invest mainly in government or corporate securities that offer fixed returns, such as corporate bonds, government bonds or mortgage-backed securities. These funds are best suited for investors who have mid-term savings and investment goals, and can assume moderate to conservative risk.

Why Bond Investing?
Today, people are living longer and fuller lives. However, Social Security appears to be less than adequate to provide most people with sufficient income for necessities, let alone leisure activities. When you retire, your investments need to work even harder for you while providing you with monthly income and striving to preserve the value of your investment.
Mutual fund investing involves risk including loss of principal. Bond and bond funds are subject to interest rate risk and will decline in value as interest rates rise. Mortgage backed securities are subject to pre-payment and extension risk and therefore react differently to changes in interest rates than other bonds. Small movements in interest rates may quickly and significantly reduce the value of certain mortgage-backed securities. Bond funds invested primarily in Hawaiian securities may be more volatile and susceptible to a single adverse economic or regulatory occurrence affecting those obligations. There is no guarantee income will be exempt from federal or state income taxes. Capital gains, if any, are subject to capital gains tax. Diversification does not protect against market loss.
