Almost without exception, any investment can fall in value and even experienced investors can lose money.
For example, if you invest in shares or managed funds, it's possible that in the short term (1 to 3 years), the value of your investments may fall. But as history shows, over longer periods (7 to 10 years) the value of quality investments like shares typically increase. However this is information you need to discuss with your adviser.
Your adviser will be able to glean from talking with you, the amount of risk they think you're willing to take. If you don't agree, talk it over. If your adviser talks about 'conservative', 'moderate' or 'aggressive investing', make sure you both agree on what those labels mean.
