Returns or yields for the fund would have been lower if .32% of the management fee had not been waived. The advisor expects this waiver to continue until April 30, 2020, and cannot terminate it prior to such date without the approval of the Board of Directors. Review the annual or semiannual report for the most current information.
The VP Funds are managed by the same management team using the same objectives, approach, and philosophy as the retail fund. The VP portfolios are managed in a manner that under normal circumstances should produce similar performance. However, it is important to note that there are additional fees and charges assessed with investments in variable insurance products, those charges are disclosed in the separate account prospectus. The fees and charges will reduce returns when compared to that of the retail fund. There is no guarantee that the management team will achieve the same or similar performance in the future.
The value and/or returns of a portfolio will fluctuate with market and economic conditions.
Different investment styles tend to shift in and out of favor depending upon market and economic conditions, as well as investor sentiment. A fund may outperform or underperform other funds that employ a different investment style.
International investing involves special risks, such as political instability and currency fluctuations.
Please see the prospectus for details about sales charges.
