Bond funds do NOT have as much "risk" as equity funds . . . . though one might be able to make a good argument that junk bonds would. One might say that bond funds alone have more risk than if within a portfolio containing equity investments. Within a portfolio, bonds and bond funds provide inverse correlation to equities, which actually reduces the portfolio's investment risk.
