Performance data quoted represents past performance; past performance does not guarantee future results. The investment return and principal value of an investment will fluctuate so that an investor's shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. Current performance of the fund may be lower or higher than the performance quoted. For Performance data current to the most recent month end, please call 866-455-3863. Returns shown are cumulative, unless otherwise noted.

The Morningstar Global Market Large-Mid Cap Index measures the performance of developed and emerging countries across the world, targeting the top 90% of stocks by market capitalization. The S&P 500 Index is a broad based unmanaged index of 500 U.S. stocks, which is widely recognized as representative of the U.S. equity market. The Bloomberg Barclays Aggregate Bond Index is a market-capitalization-weighted index of investment-grade fixed-rate debt issues, including government, corporate, asset-backed, and mortgage-backed securities, with maturities of at least one year. You cannot invest directly in an index.
