The performance quoted represents past performance and does not guarantee future results. Current performance may be lower or higher than the performance information shown. The investment return and principal value of an investment in the Portfolio will fluctuate, so that your shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. See above “Average Annual Total Returns %” for performance information current to the most recent month-end. Returns for the other share classes will vary due to different charges and expenses. Performance assumes reinvestment of distributions and does not account for taxes.

Net asset value equals total Fund assets net of Fund expenses such as operating costs and management fees. Total investment return at net asset value is not annualized for periods less than one year.

The Standard and Poor's ("S&P") Target Risk Growth Index is a broad-based index that seeks to measure the performance of an asset allocation strategy targeted to a growth-focused risk profile. The index is fully investable, with varying levels of exposure to equities and fixed-income through a family of exchange-traded funds. The index offers increased exposure to equities, while also using some fixed-income exposure to diversify risk. The index returns include the reinvestment of dividends and distributions net of withholding taxes, but do not reflect fees, brokerage commissions, or other expenses. Investors cannot directly invest in an index.

Principal Risks

All investing involves risks of fluctuating prices and the uncertainties of rates of return and yield inherent in investing. Securities of Mid-Sized Companies may entail greater volatility and less liquidity than larger companies. Convertible Securities with longer maturities tend to be more sensitive to changes in interest rates, usually making them more volatile than convertible securities with shorter maturities. Foreign Investing does pose special risks including currency fluctuation, economic and political risks not found in investments that are solely domestic. The Portfolio may use Derivatives, such as options and futures, which can be illiquid, may disproportionately increase losses and have a potentially large impact on Portfolio performance. High-Yield Securities, or “junk bonds”, are rated lower than investment-grade bonds because there is a greater possibility that the issuer may be unable to make interest and principal payments on those securities. To the extent that the Portfolio invests in Mortgage-Related Securities, its exposure to prepayment and extension risks may be greater than investments in other fixed-income securities. The Portfolio may use Derivatives, such as options and futures, which can be illiquid, may disproportionately increase losses and have a potentially large impact on Portfolio performance. Foreign Investing does pose special risks including currency fluctuation, economic and political risks not found in investments that are solely domestic.
