2 Effective January 31, 2018, the Russell Midcap Growth Index was made the primary benchmark and the S&P 500 Index will be the supplemental benchmark of the Fund because under current market conditions the Fund is invested substantially in medium-capitalization securities. The Russell Midcap Growth Index (the “Underlying Index”) measures the performance of the mid-capitalization growth sector of the U.S. equity market, and is composed of mid-capitalization U.S. equities that exhibit growth characteristics. It is a subset of the Russell Midcap® Index, which measures the performance of the mid-capitalization sector of the U.S. equity market. The Underlying Index measures the performance of equity securities of Russell Midcap Index issuers with higher price-to-book ratios and higher forecasted growth. The S&P 500 Index is a registered trademark of S&P and is an unmanaged broadly-based index of the common stock prices of 500 large U.S. companies, and includes the reinvestment of dividends. The indexes described above are unmanaged and not available for direct investment. For comparison purposes, it should be noted that the indexes described above do not charge fees and have no expenses.

The Lipper Multi-Cap Growth Index is an unmanaged index that, by portfolio practice, invests in a variety of market-capitalization ranges without concentrating 75% of its equity assets in any one market-capitalization range over an extended period of time.

The Morningstar RatingTM for funds, or "star rating", is calculated for managed products (including mutual funds, variable annuity and variable life subaccounts, exchange-traded funds, closed-end funds, and separate accounts) with at least a three-year history. Exchange-traded funds and open-ended mutual funds are considered a single population for comparative purposes. It is calculated based on a Morningstar Risk-Adjusted Return measure that accounts for variation in a managed product's monthly excess performance, placing more emphasis on downward variations and rewarding consistent performance. The top 10% of products in each product category receive 5 stars, the next 22.5% receive 4 stars, the next 35% receive 3 stars, the next 22.5% receive 2 stars, and the bottom 10% receive 1 star. The Overall Morningstar Rating for a managed product is derived from a weighted average of the performance figures associated with its three-, five-, and 10-year (if applicable) Morningstar Rating metrics. The weights are: 100% three-year rating for 36-59 months of total returns, 60% five-year rating/40% three-year rating for 60-119 months of total returns, and 50% 10-year rating/30% five-year rating/20% three-year rating for 120 or more months of total returns. While the 10-year overall star rating formula seems to give the most weight to the 10-year period, the most recent three-year period actually has the greatest impact because it is included in all three rating periods. ©Morningstar, Inc.
