Investment risk associated with the possibility that there is a rise in the interest rates after a fixed income security has been purchased resulting in a decline in that security's price. The longer the maturity date of that security, the greater the exposure of the security's price to interest rate fluctuations. The fluctuations in interest rates can have a dramatic effect on the insurance company's bond portfolio.
