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 Russell 2000 Index is an unmanaged index, measuring performance of the 2000 smallest stocks (on the basis of capitalization) in the Russell 3000 Index.
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 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.
Economies and financial markets throughout the world are becoming increasingly interconnected, which increases the likelihood that events or conditions in one country or region will adversely impact markets or issuers in other countries or regions. Securities in an Underlying Fund's portfolio may underperform securities in comparison to general financial markets, a particular financial market or other asset classes, due to a number of factors, including inflation, interest rates, global demand for particular products or resources, natural disasters or events, terrorism, regulatory events and government controls.
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.
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.
