Past performance is no guarantee of future results. The investment return and principal value of an investment in the Fund will fluctuate so that an investor’s shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. Current performance may be lower or higher than what is stated.


Investing involves risk. Principal loss is possible. Some Funds can make short sales of securities, which involves the risk that losses in securities may exceed the original amount invested. Leverage, which may exaggerate the effect of any increase or decrease in the value of securities in a Fund’s portfolio, may increase the volatility of a Fund. Investments in foreign securities involve greater volatility and political, economic, and currency risks and differences in accounting methods. These risks are increased for emerging markets. Investments in fixed income instruments typically decrease in value when interest rates rise. Derivatives involve risks different from and, in certain cases, greater than the risks presented by more traditional investments. Derivatives may involve certain costs and risks such as illiquidity, interest rate, market, credit, management, and the risk that a position could not be closed when most advantageous. Investments in asset-backed and mortgage-backed securities include additional risks that investors should be aware of, such as credit risk, prepayment risk, possible illiquidity and default, as well as increased susceptibility to adverse economic developments. Investments in lower-rated and non-rated securities present a greater risk of loss to principal and interest than higher-rated securities do. A non-diversified fund may be more susceptible to being adversely affected by a single corporate, economic, political, or regulatory occurrence than a diversified fund. Funds will incur higher and duplicative costs when it invests in mutual funds, ETFs, and other investment companies. There is also the risk that the Funds may suffer losses due to the investment practices of the underlying funds. For more information on these risks and other risks of the Funds, please see the Prospectus.


ETFs may trade at a premium or discount to NAV. Shares of any ETF are bought and sold at market prices (not NAV) and are not individually redeemed from the Fund. Brokerage commissions will reduce returns. The Fund is an actively managed ETF, which is a fund that trades like other publicly traded securities. The Fund is not an index fund and does not seek to replicate the performance of a specified index.


There is no guarantee that this or any investment strategy will succeed; the strategy is not an indicator of future performance; and investment results may vary.

References to other mutual funds should not be interpreted as an offer of these securities.

Fund holdings and allocations are subject to change at any time and should not be considered a recommendation to buy or sell any security.

Diversification does not guarantee a profit or protect from loss in a declining market.

Indexed annuities are complex, not suitable for all investors, and due to surrender charges it is possible to lose money.

Upside potential may be limited due to participation rates.
