Total return assumes reinvestment of income.

The Barclays U.S. Intermediate Aggregate Index is an unmanaged index comprised of U.S. government, mortgage, corporate and asset-backed securities with maturities of one to 10 years. The performance of the index does not reflect the deduction of expenses associated with a fund, such as investment management fees. By contrast, the performance of the Fund reflects the deduction of these expenses, including sales charges if applicable. An individual cannot invest directly in an index.

The Russell 3000 Index is an unmanaged index which measures the performance of the 3,000 largest U.S. companies based on total market capitalization, which represents approximately 98% of the investable U.S. equity market. The performance of the index does not reflect the deduction of expenses associated with a fund, such as investment management fees. By contrast, the performance of the Fund reflects the deduction of the fund expenses, including sales charges if applicable. An investor cannot invest directly in an index.

The Investor Balanced Composite Benchmark is comprised of unmanaged indices that correspond to the Fund's model allocation and consists of the Barclays U.S. Intermediate Aggregate Index (50%) and the Russell 3000 Index (50%). The performance of the composite benchmark does not reflect the deduction of expenses associated with a fund, such as investment management fees. By contrast, the performance of the Fund reflects the deduction of these expenses, including sales charges if applicable. An individual cannot invest directly in an index.

The performance of the Lipper Mixed-Asset Target Allocation Moderate Funds Index includes the deduction of expenses associated with mutual funds, such as investment management fees. These expenses are not identical to the expenses charged by the Fund. An individual cannot invest directly in an index.

Total return assumes reinvestment of dividends and capital gains distributions and reflects the deduction of any sales charges, where applicable. Performance may reflect the waiver of a portion of the Fund's advisory or administrative fees and/or reimbursement of certain expenses for certain periods since the inception date. If fees had not been waived and/or certain expenses were not reimbursed, performance would have been less favorable.

To achieve its strategy, the Fund may invest in other underlying collective trust funds and exchange-traded funds, so the Fund's investment performance is directly related to the performance of the underlying funds. The investment objective of an underlying funds may differ from, and an underlying funds may have different risks than, the Fund. There is no assurance that the underlying funds will achieve their investment objectives. International investing involves increased risk and volatility due to possibilities of currency exchange rate volatility, political, social or economic instability, foreign taxation and differences in auditing and other financial standards. Small-capitalization investments typically carry more risk than investments in well-established "blue-chip" companies since smaller companies generally have a higher risk of failure. Historically, smaller companies' stock has experienced a greater degree of market volatility than the average stock. Securities rated below investment grade are considered "high-yield," "non-investment grade," "below investment-grade," or "junk bonds." They generally are rated in the fifth or lower rating categories of Standard & Poor's and Moody's Investors Service. Although these securities tend to provide higher yields than higher rated securities, they tend to carry greater risk.

There may be additional fees or expenses associated with investing in a Fund of Funds strategy.

Asset allocation/diversification does not guarantee investment returns and does not eliminate the risk of loss.

Commodity investing is subject to greater volatility than investments in traditional securities, particularly if the instruments involve leverage. The value of commodity instruments may be affected by changes in overall market movements, commodity index volatility, changes in interest rates, or factors affecting a particular industry or commodity, such as drought, floods, weather, livestock disease, embargoes, tariffs and international economic, political and regulatory developments. Use of leveraged commodity-linked derivatives creates an opportunity for increased return but, at the same time, creates the possibility for greater loss.

Securities rated below investment grade are considered "high-yield," "non-investment grade," "below investment-grade," or "junk bonds." They generally are rated in the fifth or lower rating categories of Standard & Poor's and Moody's Investors Service. Although these securities tend to provide higher yields than higher rated securities, they tend to carry greater risk.

International investing involves a greater degree of risk and increased volatility due to political and economic instability of some overseas markets. Changes in currency exchange rates and differences in accounting and taxation policies outside the U.S. can affect returns.
Total return assumes reinvestment of income.

Sharpe ratio measures the fund's excess return compared to a risk-free investment. The higher the Sharpe ratio, the better the returns relative to the risk taken.

Tracking Error: The active risk of the portfolio, which determines the annualized standard deviation of the excess returns between the portfolio and the benchmark.

Alpha: The relationship between the performance of the Fund and its beta over a three-year period of time.

Standard deviation/Volatility: A statistical measure of the degree to which the Fund's returns have varied from its historical average. The higher the standard deviation, the wider the range of returns from its average and the greater the historical volatility. The standard deviation is calculated over a 36-month period based on Fund's monthly returns. The standard deviation shown is based on the Fund's Class A Shares or the oldest share class, where Class A Shares are not available.

R2: The percentage of a Fund's movements that result from movements in the index ranging from 0 to 100. A Fund with an R2 of 100 means that 100 percent of the Fund's movement can completely be explained by movements in the Fund's external index benchmark.

Risk measures are calculated based upon the Funds' broad-based index as stated in the prospectus.
