The management fee has been restated to reflect the decrease in the management fee schedule effective August 1, 2021. 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.
