- Through its investment in JPMorgan Realty Income Fund, the Portfolio seeks high total investment return through a combination of capital appreciation and current income. The Underlying Fund invests primarily in equity securities of real estate investment trusts (REITs).
- Invests in equity REITs, which take ownership interest in real estate, and mortgage REITs, which invest in mortgages.
- Selects companies that exhibit superior financial strength and operating returns and attractive growth prospects.
Fees and Minimums
â 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. Portfolio performance is shown net of expenses. Please see the expense tables in the Disclosure Booklet for more information.
Total return assumes reinvestment of income.
Mutual funds have fees that reduce their performance: indexes do not. You cannot invest directly in an index.
The MSCI U.S. REIT Index is a free float-adjusted market capitalization weighted index comprised of equity REITs that are included in the MSCI US Investable Market 2500 Index, except specialty equity REITs that do not generate a majority of their revenue and income from real estate rental and leasing operations. The index represents approximately 85% of the US REIT universe.
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.

The Underlying Funds and Portfolios could experience a loss and their liquidity may be negatively impacted when selling securities to meet redemption requests by shareholders. The risk of loss increases if the redemption requests are unusually large or frequent or occur in times of overall market turmoil or declining prices. Similarly, large purchases of an Underlying Fund or Portfolio shares may adversely affect an Underlying Fund's or Portfolio's performance to the extent that an Underlying Fund or Portfolio is delayed in investing new cash and is required to maintain a larger cash position than it ordinarily would.
Certain Underlying Funds investments in real estate securities, including REITs, 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 Fund will indirectly bear its proportionate share of expenses, including management fees, paid by each REIT in which it invests in addition to the expenses of the Fund.
As a "non-diversified" fund, an Underlying Fund may hold a smaller number of portfolio securities than many other funds. To the extent the Underlying Fund invests in a relatively small number of issuers, a decline in the market value of a particular security held by the Underlying Fund may affect its value more than if it invested in a larger number of issuers. The value of Fund Shares may be more volatile than the values of shares of more diversified funds.
The Underlying Fund is subject to management risk and the Underlying Fund may not achieve its objective if the adviser's expectations regarding particular instruments 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.
The Underlying Fund may engage in active and frequent trading leading to increased portfolio turnover, higher transaction costs, and the possibility of increased capital gains, including short-term capital gains that will generally be taxable to shareholders as ordinary income.
