If you've been socking away cash in bonds, assuming they are risk-free investments, you may be in for a surprise. In March, the Federal Reserve raised the federal funds rate - which influences interest rates across the board - and signaled that it intends to continue raising rates over the coming year, which could lead to losses for bond investors.

A new  survey from BlackRock found that nearly one-third (31 percent) of investors believe "you can't lose your money" with fixed income investing. But in reality, rising interest rates actually have a negative impact on bond prices, so it is possible to lose money on the bonds in your portfolio if interest rates continue to rise.
