The fund selects companies for its portfolio using the fund manager's in-house proprietary screening process.

*While certain portfolios seek to cushion the effects of volatility in U.S. equity markets by diversifying in foreign markets and/or fixed income markets, diversification cannot assure a profit or protect against loss in a declining market.

The principal value of the Enrollment-Based Portfolios is not guaranteed at any time, including at or after the target enrollment date. The portfolios invest in a broad range of underlying mutual funds that include stocks, bonds, and short-term investments and are subject to the risks of different areas of the market. The portfolios emphasize potential capital appreciation during the early phases of asset accumulation, balance the need for appreciation with the need for income as matriculation approaches, and focus more on income and principal stability while the child is in school. While moving assets into bond and money market funds can help lower investment risks, there is no guarantee against loss. The portfolios maintain a substantial allocation to equities both prior to and after the target enrollment date, which can result in greater volatility.
