Advanced Outcomes Annuity offers structured outcome strategies with underlying funds that have characteristics unlike many other traditional investment products and may not be suitable for all investors. There is no guarantee that the outcomes for a specific fund term will be realized. For more information regarding whether an investment in these funds is right for your client, please see the product and fund prospectuses.

The funds have characteristics unlike many other traditional investment products and may not be suitable for all investors. The potential returns an investor can receive from an investment in any of the above funds is subject to each fund's specific parameters (i.e., cap, participation rate, buffer, floor, and spread). There is no guarantee that the outcomes for an outcome period will be realized. A shareholder may lose their entire investment. For more information regarding whether an investment in these funds is right for you, please see the funds' prospectus.

Investors purchasing shares of a fund using this strategy after an outcome period has begun may experience very different results than the fund's investment objective. Following the initial outcome period, each subsequent outcome period will begin on the tenth day of the month the fund was incepted. After the conclusion of an outcome period, another will begin. Depending upon market conditions at the time of purchase, investors who purchase shares after the outcome period has begun may also lose their entire investment. An investment in the fund is only appropriate for investors willing to bear those losses.

1. Unlike other investment products, the potential returns an investor can receive from an investment in the Fund are subject to the Spread. This means that if the S&P 500 Index experiences gains for the Outcome Period, an investor in the Fund will only experience those gains if they exceed the Spread and only by the amount those gains have exceeded the Spread. If the S&P 500 Index does not experience gains that exceed the Spread, an investor in the Fund will not experience any gains. In certain market conditions, the performance of the Collateral Portfolio and the Put Spread Strategy could cause the Fund to underperform relative to the S&P 500 Index, which would require greater upside performance of the S&P 500 Index to generate a total return of the Fund that exceeds the Spread. An investor should consider the amount and impact of the Spread, and the Fund's position relative to it, before investing in the Fund.

2. The Buffer is not operative against losses in the Collateral Portfolio, which is comprised of fixed income securities and instruments providing exposure to fixed income securities. If the Collateral Portfolio experiences losses, it could have the effect of reducing the impact of, or completely eliminating, the buffer on the fund's S&P 500 Index exposure. In certain market conditions, the performance of the Collateral Portfolio could cause the fund's to significantly underperform the S&P 500 Index. Investors who purchase shares at the beginning of the outcome period may lose their entire investment. Investors who purchase shares after the outcome period has begun may also lose their entire investment.

3. The results shown are historical, for informational purposes only, and do not guarantee future results. Any reference to a market index is included for illustrative purposes only, as it is not possible to directly invest in an index. Indices are unmanaged, hypothetical vehicles that serve as market indicators and do not account for the deduction of management fees or transaction costs generally associated with investable products, which otherwise have the effect of reducing the results of an actual investment portfolio.

4. Each Fund maintains a collateral portfolio comprised of fixed income securities, including money market funds and/or cash, and/or exchange-traded funds ("ETFs") investing in such fixed income securities (the "Collateral Portfolio"). The performance of the Collateral Portfolio can increase or decrease the overall performance of a Fund irrespective of the performance of the referenced index or applicable parameter. This means that the performance of the Fund at the end of its term may be greater than or less than the referenced index's performance. It is possible in certain market scenarios that the performance of the Collateral Portfolio can partially, or in some cases, completely negate positive referenced index performance resulting in negative Fund performance at the end of its term. Alternatively, the performance of the Collateral Portfolio may result in the Fund outperforming the referenced index resulting in additional positive Fund performance at the end of its term.

Current figures are net of accrued Outcome Period expenses to date. Net figures include Outcome Period expenses yet to be incurred.

Investing involves risks. Loss of principal is possible. The funds face numerous market risks, including: fixed income risk, active markets risk, participation rate change risk, capped upside return risk, correlation risk, liquidity risk, management risk, market risk, non-diversification risk, operation risk, options risk, FLEX options risk, trading issues risk, upside participation risk and valuation risk.

The fund will utilize FLEX Options issued and guaranteed for settlement by the Options Clearing Corporation (OCC). In the unlikely event that the OCC becomes insolvent or is otherwise unable to meet its settlement obligations, the fund could suffer significant losses. Additionally, FLEX Options may be less liquid than standard options. In a less liquid market for the FLEX Options, the fund may have difficulty closing out certain FLEX Options positions at desired times and prices. The values of FLEX Options do not increase or decrease at the same rate as the reference asset and may vary due to factors other than the price of reference asset.

Any reference to a market index is included for illustrative purposes only, as it is not possible to directly invest in an index. Indices are unmanaged, hypothetical vehicles that serve as market indicators and do not account for the deduction of management fees or transaction costs generally associated with investable products, which otherwise have the effect of reducing the results of an actual investment portfolio.

The fund invests in fixed income assets, from which a portion of the expected yield is derived to support the fund's overall investment strategy. This is atypical from a traditional investment in fixed income assets, whereby the investor directly receives income from the fixed income positions. Because the fund invests in fixed income assets, some credit risk is introduced, and the strategy may not achieve its desired objective.

Options Strategies

Buffer Strategy - Designed to provide a cushion against a specified percentage of losses in the Fund's S&P 500 Index exposure (the "Buffer") if the S&P 500 Index experiences losses during the Outcome Period.

Floor Strategy - Designed to limit losses in the Fund's S&P 500 Index exposure to a specified percentage (the "Floor") if the S&P 500 Index experiences losses during the Outcome Period.

Par Up Strategy - Designed to provide participation in the gains of the S&P 500 Index at a declared participation rate (the "Par Up Rate") if the S&P 500 Index experiences gains during the Outcome Period.

Par Down Strategy - Designed to limit losses in the Fund's S&P 500 Index exposure at a declared participation rate (the "Par Down Rate") if the S&P 500 Index experiences losses during the Outcome Period.

Spread Strategy - Designed to provide participation in the gains of the S&P 500 Index if the S&P 500 Index experiences gains during the Outcome Period that exceed a declared spread (the "Spread").

Stacker Cap Strategy - Designed to provide participation in the gains of the S&P 500 Index up to a declared cap (the "S&P 500 Index Cap") if the S&P 500 Index experiences gains during the Outcome Period plus additional gains equal to any upside market performance of a secondary market index (the S&P 500 Index and each secondary market index is referred to as a "Reference Index," and, collectively, the "Reference Indices") up to a declared cap (such cap together with the S&P 500 Index Cap, the "Index Caps," and, each, an "Index Cap") if that secondary Reference Index experiences gains during the Outcome Period.

Trigger Strategy - Designed to produce a fixed rate of return that is only "triggered" (i.e., paid to the Fund) if the value of the S&P 500 Index or a corresponding exchange-traded fund ("ETF") is unchanged or increases over the Outcome Period (the "Trigger Rate").

Definitions

Floor - A mechanism which seeks to protect an investment from a net decline in the S&P 500 up to a maximum loss during the Outcome Period. For a 15% floored investment, a 20% net decline in the S&P 500 would result in a 15% decrease in the investment, excluding fees and expenses.

Buffer - A mechanism which seeks to protect an investment from a net decline in the S&P 500 up to a set amount during the Outcome Period. For a 10% buffer investment, a 25% net decline in the S&P 500 would lead to a 15% decrease in the investment, excluding fees and expenses.

Cap - Represents the maximum rate of return in each Reference Index that an investor can achieve from an investment in the Fund over the Outcome Period, excluding fees and expenses.

Outcome Period - The outcome period begins on the day Milliman transacts in the FLEX Options and ends on the day those FLEX Options expire.

Spread - The minimum net gain the S&P 500 Index must surpass for the Fund to participate in any additional net gain of the S&P 500 Index during the Outcome Period, excluding fees and expenses.

Upside Par Rate - The rate at which an investment in the fund participates in net price gains in the S&P 500 Index during the Outcome Period, excluding fees and expenses. If the S&P 500 Index experiences net gains for the Outcome Period, an investor in the Fund will only experience a percentage of those gains (equal to the Par Up Rate multiplied by the S&P 500 Index gains, excluding fees and expenses).

Trigger Rate - A fixed rate of return that will be paid to the Fund if the value of the S&P 500 Index or corresponding ETF at the end of the Outcome Period is equal to or greater than the strike price of the Binary Options purchased by Milliman on the first day of the Outcome Period (such strike price being equal to the approximate value of the S&P 500 Index or corresponding ETF on that date).
