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.
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.

For more information regarding whether an investment in these funds is right for you, please see the product and fund prospectuses.
