The Average Annual Returns reflect the advisory fee and all other portfolio expenses and include reinvestment of dividends and capital gains; they do not reflect the charges and deduction under the applicable life insurance policies or annuity contracts. This information must be accompanied by the current performance reports for the appropriate product showing returns net of fees and charges, including mortality and expense risk charge.

Past performance is no guarantee of future performance. Both the return and principal value of subaccounts will fluctuate so that when redeemed, they may be worth more or less than their original cost. An investment in the fund is subject to risk including possible loss of principal.

Investments in high-yield bonds ("junk bonds") may be subject to greater volatility and risks as the income derived from these securities is not guaranteed and may be unpredictable and the value of these securities tends to decline when interest rates increase.
