The performance data quoted represents past performance, and is no guarantee of future results. Your returns and the principal value of your investment will fluctuate so that your shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. Current performance may be lower or higher than the performance quoted above. For investments with exceptional performance, please note that performance fluctuates and currently may be lower than noted here.

The risks that the fund is subject to include asset allocation risk, active management risk and underlying fund risk. The fund is also subject to the risks of the underlying funds in which the fund invests in. This may include equity investment risk and fixed income investment risks.

1.
The net annual expense ratio represents expenses after reimbursement and waivers, while the gross annual expense ratio represents expenses without any reimbursements and waivers. Certain funds have expense reimbursement arrangements that will continue through at least July 31, 2015, except for equity funds and lifestyle funds, which have an expiration date of February 28, 2015 and September 30, 2015, respectively, and can only be changed with approval of the Board of Trustees. Without these waivers and reimbursements, Fund expenses would be higher and their performance would have been lower.
2.
The fund's benchmark is a weighted average of the benchmarks for each of the underlying funds in which the fund invests. The composite index is created by applying the performance of the benchmark indices in proportion to each Fund’s target allocations across the market sectors. You cannot invest directly in this index.
