The Underlying Fund is subject to management risk and may not achieve its objective if the adviser's expectations regarding particular securities or markets are not met.

Certain Underlying Funds invest in equity securities (such as stocks) that are more volatile and carry more risks than some other forms of investment. The price of equity securities may rise or fall because of economic or political changes or changes in a company's financial condition, sometimes rapidly or unpredictably. These price movements may result from factors affecting individual companies, sectors or industries selected for the Underlying Fund's portfolio or the securities market as a whole, such as changes in economic or political conditions. When the value of the Underlying Fund's securities goes down, the Portfolio's investment in the Underlying Fund decreases in value.

Some of the Underlying Funds invest more or less of their assets in securities of smaller cap companies (small and mid cap companies) which may be riskier, more volatile and vulnerable to economic, market and industry changes than securities of larger, more established companies. As a result, share price changes of the Underlying Funds may be more sudden or erratic than the prices of other equity securities, especially over the short term.

Underlying Funds that invest in foreign currencies and foreign issuers are subject to additional risks, including political and economic risks, greater volatility, civil conflicts and war, currency fluctuations, higher transaction costs, delayed settlement, possible foreign controls on investment, expropriation and nationalization risks, and less stringent investor protection and disclosure standards of foreign markets. These risks are magnified in countries in "emerging markets."

The Underlying Funds may use derivatives. Derivatives may be riskier than other investments because they may be more sensitive to changes in economic and market conditions and could result in losses that significantly exceed the original investment. Many derivatives create leverage thereby causing the Portfolio or Underlying Fund to be more volatile than it would be if it had not used derivatives. Derivatives also expose the Portfolio and Underlying Funds to counterparty risk (the risk that the derivative counterparty will not fulfill its contractual obligation), including credit risk of the derivative counterparty.

Certain Underlying Funds are highly concentrated in real estate securities including REITs. These securities are subject to the same risks as direct investments in real estate and mortgages, and their value will depend on the value of the underlying real estate interests. These risks include default, prepayments, changes in value resulting from changes in interest rates and demand for real and rental property, and the management skill and creditworthiness of REIT issuers. The Underlying Funds will indirectly bear their proportionate share of expenses, including management fees, paid by each REIT in which they invest in addition to the expenses of the Underlying Funds.

The Underlying Fund or a Portfolio could experience a loss when selling securities to meet redemption requests by shareholders if the redemption requests are unusually large or frequent or occur in times of overall market turmoil or declining prices.

The Underlying Funds are managed with a passive investment strategy, attempting to track the performance of an unmanaged index of securities. This differs from an actively managed fund, which typically seeks to outperform a benchmark index. As a result, such Underlying Funds may hold constituent securities of their index regardless of the current or projected performance of a specific security or a particular industry or market sector. Maintaining investments in securities regardless of market conditions or the performance of individual securities could cause the Underlying Fund's return to be lower than if the Underlying Fund employed an active strategy.

1Please refer to the Disclosure Booklet for additional information about cut-off times.

The expense ratio is an estimate of the asset-based expenses for the Portfolio and includes estimated underlying fund expenses, the program management fee and any applicable distribution and service fee. Please see the expense tables in the Disclosure Booklet for more information.

Total return assumes reinvestment of dividends and capital gains distributions from the Underlying Funds and reflects the deduction of any sales charges, where applicable. Performance may reflect the waiver of a portion of the Underlying Fund's advisory or administrative fees for certain periods since the inception date. If fees had not been waived, performance would have been less favorable.
