Bond Fund Risk

Comparing the risks associated with different types of bond funds can help you choose the right fit for your portfolio.

To help you better understand the risks associated with different types of bond funds, Fidelity uses Morningstar's category risk ratings. Morningstar assigns a risk score to each of its mutual fund categories. This graph is meant to show the risks of bond funds within different categories relative to one another. Note that it does not represent the risk of a specific fund within its Morningstar category or show the entire risk spectrum.
