Neither Morningstar nor its content providers are responsible for any damages or losses arising from any use of this information. Past performance is no guarantee of future results. 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 Rating is for the Service share class only; other classes may have different performance characteristics.

S&P TR 500 Index is a capitalization weighted index of 500 stocks representing all major domestic industry groups. The S&P 500 TR assumes the reinvestment of dividends and capital gains. It is not possible to directly invest in any index.
*60/40 NYSE Composite/Barclays U.S. AGG. Bond Index: This benchmark gives 60% weight to the NYSE Composite Index and 40% weight to the Barclays U.S. Agg. Bond Index. The NYSE Composite Index (NYATR) measures the performance of all stocks listed on the New York Stock Exchange. It includes more than 1,900 stocks, of which over 1,500 are U.S. companies. Its breadth therefore makes it a much better indicator of market performance than narrow indexes that have far fewer components. The weights of the index constituents are calculated on the basis of their free-float market capitalization. The index itself is calculated on the basis of price return and total return, which includes dividends. The Barclays U.S. Aggregate Bond Index measures the underlying index and performance of the total U.S. investment grade bond market. It is a market value-weighted index that tracks the daily price, coupon, pay-downs, and total return performance of fixed-rate, publicly placed, dollar‑denominated, and non-convertible investment grade debt issues with at least $250 million per amount outstanding and with at least one year to final maturity.
Portfolio statistics are based on 5 year calculations from Morningstar, FastTrack Data, and Bloomberg Finance, L.P.
Standard Deviation: is also known as historical volatility and is used by investors as a gauge for the amount of expected volatility. It is a measure of the dispersion of a set of data from its mean. Sharpe Ratio: a risk-adjusted measure calculated by dividing a fund’s annualized excess returns over the risk-free rate by its annualized standard deviation. The higher the Sharpe ratio, the better the fund’s historical risk-adjusted performance. Beta: a statistic that measures volatility of the fund, as compared to that of the overall market. The market’s beta is set at 1; a higher beta than 1 is considered to be more volatile than the market, while a beta lower than 1 is considered to be less volatile. R-Squared: a measurement of how closely a fund’s performance correlates with an index. It can range between 0 and 1. An r-squared of 1 indicates perfect correlation, while 0 indicates no correlation. Up Market Capture: a statistical measure of an investment manager’s overall performance in up markets. The up market capture ratio is used to evaluate how well an investment manager performed relative to an index during periods when that index rose. Down Market Capture: a statistical measure of an investment manager’s overall performance in down markets. The down market capture ratio is used to evaluate how well or poorly an investment manager performed relative to an index during periods when that index has dropped.
