The Fund may invest a portion of its assets in common stocks and other securities of issuers domiciled outside of the United States. Although the fund focuses on investments in medium to larger capitalization companies, the fund’s investments are not limited to a particular capitalization size. This Portfolio is only offered as an investment option within a variable annuity contract. There are other investment choices available with different management fees associated with each choice. Variable annuities are long-term, tax-deferred vehicles designed for retirement purposes. They offer three main benefits: tax-deferred treatment of earnings, guaranteed death benefit options, and guaranteed lifetime payout options. Variable annuities are subject to investment risk, including possible loss of principal. The value of the variable annuity will fluctuate so that when surrendered, it may be worth more or less than the total of premium payments. Before investing, consider a variable annuity’s investment objectives, risks, charges, and expenses carefully before investing. Call 1-800-525-6205 for a contract and fund prospectus containing this and other information. Please read it carefully. Generally, each subaccount has broad risks that apply to all subaccounts, such as market risk, as well as specific risks of investing in particular types of subaccounts. The Standard and Poors 500® Index (“S&P 500®”) is an unmanaged index used as a general measure of market performance. It is not possible to invest directly into an index.
