Type Fund Benchmark Net

Negative weightings may result from specific circumstances (including timing differences between trade and settle dates of securities purchased by the funds) and/or the use of certain financial instruments, including derivatives, which may be used to gain or reduce market exposure and/or risk management. Allocations are subject to change.

% of Net Assets represents the Fund’s exposure based on the economic value of securities and is adjusted for futures, options, and swaps (except with respect to fixed income securities), and convertible bonds. On a market value basis the Fund is comprised of 89% equities, 2% fixed income, 9% cash equivalents. The Funds will not use borrowing to purchase additional investments but may be expected, via derivative positions, to obtain market exposure in excess of net asset value.
