Asset allocation is the process of spreading assets across several different investment styles and asset classes. The purpose is to potentially reduce long-term risk and capture potential profits across various asset classes.
There is no assurance that the investment objective of any fund (or that of any underlying fund) will be achieved or that a diversified portfolio will produce better results than a nondiversified portfolio. Diversification does not guarantee returns or insulate an investor from potential losses, including the possible loss of principal.
The Fund is designed to provide diversification across traditional asset classes in combination with nontraditional asset classes, primarily by investing in underlying funds. Therefore, in addition to the expenses of the
The Fund is subject to different levels of risk, based on the types and sizes of its underlying asset class allocations and its allocation strategy. In addition, the Fund’s underlying funds may be subject to specific investment risks such as those associated with: (i) equity securities, including those of smaller companies; (ii) fixed-income securities, including high-yield bonds; (iii) international securities; (iv) derivatives, including commodities; (v) real estate investment trusts (REITs); and (vi)

The Fund is subject to the risks of its underlying funds, which may include exchange-traded funds (ETFs) and closed-end funds. The shares of closed-end funds and ETFs may trade at prices at, below or above their most recent net asset value. There is no guarantee that a fund’s discount will ever be narrowed or eliminated. In addition, the performance of an ETF pursuing a passive index-based strategy may diverge from the performance of the index.
The Fund also may invest in exchange-traded notes (ETNs), which may not trade in the secondary market, but typically are redeemable by the issuer and are subject to the creditworthiness of the issuer. ETNs are debt securities and are not regulated under the 1940 Act.
The Fund is subject to the risks of investing in equity securities, including investing in smaller companies. The Fund is subject to the risks of investing in fixed-income securities, including high-yield bonds. The Fund also is subject to the risks of investing in foreign securities. Funds that concentrate on specific sectors may be subject to greater volatility than that of other mutual funds. The Fund may invest in more-aggressive investments such as derivatives, including commodities (which create investment leverage and are highly volatile) and real estate investment trusts (REITs) (which are subject to abrupt or erratic price movements and generally lack liquidity). The Fund may utilize short positions (which create investment leverage and can exaggerate a Fund’s losses).
