Standard deviation: Measures how widely a set of values varies from the mean. It is a historical measure of the variability of return earned by an investment portfolio over a 3-year period.

Duration: Duration provides a measure of a fund's interest-rate sensitivity. The longer a fund's duration, the more sensitive the fund is to shifts in interest rates.

Diversification does not guarantee a profit or ensure against loss. It is possible to lose money in a diversified portfolio.

Sharpe ratio: Measure of historical adjusted performance calculated by dividing the fund's return minus the risk-free rate (ML 3-month T-bill) by the standard deviation of the fund's return. The higher the ratio, the better the fund's return per unit of risk.

Alpha: Measure of performance on a risk-adjusted basis. Alpha takes the volatility of a mutual fund and compares its risk-adjusted performance with that of a benchmark index. The excess return of the fund relative to the return of the benchmark index is a fund's alpha.
