Overview:

Fund data as of 09/30/2019 unless otherwise specified.

Investment Objective:

The Fund seeks to provide current income and modest capital appreciation.

Investment Strategy:

The Fund, primarily through investments in the Select Funds, combines a greater percentage of fixed income securities with a smaller percentage of equity securities. The following potential ranges are used to allocate the Fund’s assets among the Select Funds or other investments: Fixed Income 50-80%; Equities 20-40%; Real Assets 0-15%; Alternatives 0-15%.

Investment Suitability:

This Fund may be suitable for investors who have a short- to medium-term investment horizon, possess a relatively low tolerance for risk and want some exposure to the growth potential of the stock market tempered by a larger allocation to short-term, fixed-income securities.

Foreign and emerging market securities may involve additional risks, including social and political instability, reduced market liquidity, currency volatility, less available public information about the issuers of securities, less stringent regulatory standards and a lack of uniform accounting, auditing and financial standards. Small company stocks are generally riskier than large company stocks due to greater volatility and less liquidity. This fund is subject to credit risk and interest rate risk. Interest rate risk means, when interest rates rise, the value of the existing bonds decrease and vice versa. Changes in interest rates have a bigger impact on long duration holdings than on short duration holdings. This description of risks is provided as a summary of the principal investment risks associated with this mutual fund. Refer to the Fund's prospectus for more detailed risk information.

The information contained herein: (1) is proprietary to Morningstar and/or its content providers; (2) may not be copied or distributed; and (3) is not warranted to be accurate, complete or timely. Neither Morningstar nor its content providers are responsible for any damages or losses arising from any use of this information.

The Morningstar Rating™ for funds, or “star rating,” is calculated for managed products (including mutual funds, variable annuity and variable life subaccounts, exchange-traded funds, closed-end funds and separate accounts) with at least a 3-year history. Exchange-traded funds and open-ended mutual funds are considered a single population for comparative purposes. It is calculated based on a Morningstar Risk-Adjusted Return measure that accounts for variation in a managed product’s monthly excess performance, placing more emphasis on downward variations and rewarding consistent performance. The top 10% of products in each product category receive 5 stars, the next 22.5% receive 4 stars, the next 35% receive 3 stars, the next 22.5% receive 2 stars and the bottom 10% receive 1 star. The Overall Morningstar Rating for a managed product is derived from a weighted average of the performance figures associated with its 3-, 5- and 10-year (if applicable) Morningstar Rating metrics. The weights are: 100% 3-year rating for 36–59 months of total returns, 60% 5-year rating/40% 3-year rating for 60–119 months of total returns and 50% 10-year rating/30% 5-year rating/20% 3-year rating for 120 or more months of total returns. While the 10-year overall star rating formula seems to give the most weight to the 10-year period, the most recent 3-year period actually has the greatest impact because it is included in all three rating periods. Ratings are for the share class shown only; other classes may vary. Past performance is no guarantee of future results.
