Important Risks: Investing involves risk, including the possible loss of principal. Security prices fluctuate in value depending on general market and economic conditions and the prospects of individual companies. • The ability of the Fund to meet its investment objective is directly related to the ability of the underlying funds to meet their objectives as well as the investment manager's allocation among those underlying funds. The Fund is subject to the risks of the underlying funds, in direct proportion to the amount of assets it invests in each underlying fund. The underlying funds are subject to the risks specific to their investment strategies, such as market, small- and mid-cap securities, foreign securities, emerging-market securities, fixed-income securities (which carry credit, liquidity, call, duration, and interest-rate risks), mortgage-related and asset-backed securities, and derivative risks, and to the extent the underlying fund is an ETF, risks associated with ETFs.
