THE BOTTOM LINE - Historical returns should not be viewed in isolation; they should be considered alongside the associated risks and market conditions. In isolation, past performance does NOT guarantee future results, as various factors such as market changes, macroeconomic variables, or management decisions can lead to markedly different future performance.
