Investors should consider the investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses of a mutual fund carefully before investing. The prospectus contains this and other information about a mutual fund and is available on this site, or call 1-800-836-2211 for copies. The prospectus should be read carefully before investing.

The performance data depicted represents past performance and does not guarantee future results. The investment return and principal value of an investment 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 the performance data quoted. Please contact us at 1-800-836-2211 for the most recent month-end performance data of the listed funds or strategy.

Investments such as mutual funds which focus on alternative strategies are subject to increased risk of loss of principal and are not suitable for all investors. Diversification does not ensure a profit or guarantee against a loss. There is no assurance that any investment strategy will be successful. Any investment in the Fund should be part of an overall investment program rather than, in itself, a complete program. As the Fund may invest in underlying mutual funds or other managed strategies, an investor in the Fund could bear the management fees and operating expenses of the ‘‘underlying strategies’’ in which the Fund invests. To the extent that the underlying strategies could be engaged separately, the total expenses borne by an investor in the Fund may be higher than if the investor invested directly in the underlying strategies, and the returns may therefore be lower. Target allocation percentages are subject to change at any time. This data is shown for informational purposes only and is not to be considered a recommendation to purchase or sell any security.

The Fund, the Sub-Advisers and any underlying strategies may use aggressive investment strategies, which are riskier than those used by typical mutual funds. If the Fund and Sub-Advisers are unsuccessful in applying these investment strategies, the Fund and you may lose more money than if you had invested in another fund that did not invest aggressively. The Fund is subject to risks associated with the Sub-Advisers making trading decisions independently, investing in other investment companies, using a particular style or set of styles, basing investment decisions on historical relationships and correlations, trading frequently, using leverage, making short sales, being non-diversified and investing in securities with low correlation to the market. The use of leverage may magnify losses. The Fund is also subject to risks associated with investments in foreign markets, emerging market securities, small cap companies, debt securities, derivatives, commodity-linked instruments, illiquid securities, asset-backed securities and CMOs. Please see the prospectus and summary prospectus for information on these as well as other risk considerations.

The Gross Expense Ratio is the Fund's total operating expenses taken from the most recent prospectus. This ratio excludes waivers and/or expense reimbursements the fund manager might apply. The Net Expense Ratio is taken from the most recent audited financial statements, represents the expenses paid with inclusion of waivers and/or expense reimbursements. When waivers and/or expense reimbursements are included, the Fund's expenses will be lower and performance will be higher for the disclosed expense waiver period. Waiver and/or expense reimbursements can be voluntary or mandated by contract and can expire either at a specific date, at will, or indefinitely.
