There is no guarantee the objective will be achieved or that any return expectations will be met.
Investment risks — Market risk may affect a single issuer, sector of the economy, industry or the market as a whole. The portfolios are subject to the investment performance (positive or negative), risks and expenses of underlying funds in which they invest. Asset allocation does not assure a profit or protect against loss. Alternative investments involve substantial risks and are more volatile than traditional investments, making them more suitable for investors with an above average tolerance for risk. ETFs trade like stocks, are subject to investment risk and will fluctuate in market value. Investment products, including shares of mutual funds, are not federally or FDIC-insured, are not deposits or obligations of, or guaranteed by any financial institution. Investing in derivatives is a specialized activity that involves special risks that subject the portfolio to significant loss potential, including when used as leverage, and may result in greater fluctuation in portfolio value. The portfolio’s use of leverage allows for investment exposure in excess of net assets, thereby magnifying volatility of returns and risk of loss. Commodity investments may be affected by the overall market and industry- and commodity-specific factors and may be more volatile and less liquid than other investments. Short positions (where the underlying asset is not owned) can create unlimited risk. International investing involves certain risks and volatility due to potential political, economic or currency instabilities and different financial and accounting standards. Risks are enhanced for emerging market issuers. Fixed-income securities present issuer default risk. A rise in interest rates may result in a price decline of fixed-income instruments held by the portfolio, negatively impacting its performance and NAV. Falling rates may result in the portfolio investing in lower yielding debt instruments, lowering the portfolio’s income and yield. These risks may be heightened for longer maturity and duration securities. Interest payments on inflation-protected securities may be more volatile than interest paid on ordinary bonds. In periods of deflation, these securities provide no income, which could result in losses.
