Credit exposure is the credit ratings for the underlying securities of the Fund as provided by Standard and Poor's (S&P), Moody's Investors Service, or Fitch and typically range from AAA/Aaa (highest) to C/D (lowest). If S&P, Moody's, and Fitch assign different ratings, the median rating is used. If only two agencies assign ratings, the lower rating is used. Securities that are not rated by any of the three agencies are listed as "Not Rated." Ratings do not apply to the Fund itself or to Fund shares. Ratings may change.

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 of the general equity market, small- and mid-cap securities, foreign and emerging-markets securities, fixed-income securities (which carry credit, liquidity, duration, and interest-rate risk), high-yield ("junk") bonds, mortgage related- and asset-backed securities, and derivatives
