Source: Morningstar. The Morningstar Rating may not be calculated based on its share class adjusted historical returns. If so, this investment's independent Morningstar Rating metric uses the fund's oldest share class to determine its hypothetical rating for certain time periods. 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 three-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 three-, five-, and 10-year (if applicable) Morningstar Rating metrics. The weights are: 100% three-year rating for 36-59 months of total returns, 60% five-year rating/40% three-year rating for 60-119 months of total returns, and 50% 10-year rating/30% five-year rating/20% three-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 three-year period actually has the greatest impact because it is included in all three rating periods. 2017 Morningstar, Inc.

Key Fund Details

ClassFund IDCusipTicker


The Fund may not be suitable for all investors. The Fund may invest in equity and equity-related securities, where the value of a particular security could go down resulting in a loss of money, including small and mid-cap securities, which may be subject to more erratic market movements than large-cap stocks and large-cap stocks, which may go in and out of favor based on market and economic conditions. The Fund may engage substantially in short sales (borrowing securities), which may prevent it from implementing its investment strategy to the extent the Fund is obligated to cover a short position at a higher price, resulting in a loss. Because the Fund's loss on a short sale arises from increases in the value of the security sold short, such loss is theoretically unlimited. The Fund may be subject to management and market risks, where the value of investments may decrease and securities markets are volatile; active trading risk and high portfolio turnover results in higher transaction costs, which can affect the Fund's performance. The Fund's subadvisor uses certain quantitative models to help guide its investment decisions. The design of the underlying models may be flawed or incomplete and it is impossible to completely eliminate the risk of error in the implementation of these computer models. Diversification does not guarantee a profit or protect against a loss in declining markets. See the Fund’s prospectus for complete details of these risks. These risks may result in greater share price volatility. It is anticipated that the Fund will typically have low net exposure to the equity markets, and therefore the Fund’s returns should not be significantly affected by broad equity market movements. There is no guarantee the Fund’s objective will be achieved.

Beta measures a fund’s sensitivity to changes in the overall market relative to its benchmark. Max Drawdown is the maximum loss from a peak to a trough of a portfolio, before a new peak is attained. Net Equity Exposure is the percentage of assets invested in long equity holdings minus percentage of assets invested in short equity holdings. Sharpe Ratio is a risk-adjusted measure using standard deviation and excess return to determine reward per unit of risk. The higher the Sharpe Ratio, the better the historical risk-adjusted performance. Standard deviation depicts how widely returns vary around its average and is used to understand the range of returns most likely for a given fund. A higher standard deviation generally implies greater volatility. It is an indicator of downside risk over a specified time period.
