The value of Fund shares rises and falls as the value of the sercurities in a Fund invests goes up and down. Only consider investing in the Funds if you are willing to accept the risk that you may lose money. Fund share prices, yields and total returns will change with the fluctuations in the securities markets as well as the fortunes of the industries and companies in which the Funds invest.
The Amana Funds limit the securities they purchase to those consistent with Islamic principles which limits opportunities and may increase risk.
Growth funds may invest in smaller companies, which involve higher investment risks in that they often have limited product lines, markets and resources, or their securities may trade less frequently and have greater price fluctuation than those of larger companies. Growth stocks, which can be priced on future expectations rather than current results, may decline substantially when expectations are not met or general market conditions weaken.
International investing involves additional risks not typically associated with investing in U.S. securities such as currency exchange rates, less public information about securities, less government market supervision and lack of uniform financial, social and political standards.
The risks inherent in the bond Funds depend primarily on the terms and quality of obligations in their portfolios, as well as on bond market conditions. When interest rates rise, bond prices fall. When interest rates fall, bond prices go up. Bonds with longer maturities are usually more sensitive to interest rate changes than those with shorter maturities. These Funds also entail credit risk, which is the possibility that a bond issuer will not be able to pay interest or principal when it is due.
