Investment Unit Values and Performance

Investment results shown represent historical performance and do not guarantee future results. Investment returns and principal values fluctuate with changes in interest rates and other market conditions so the value, when redeemed may be worth more or less than original costs. Current performance may be lower or higher than the performance data shown.

The gross total investment expense figure does not reflect any waivers or caps on the mutual fund or underlying mutual fund in which a Separate Account invests. Returns displayed are always based on net total investment expense. For more information on net total investment expense figures, please access the Investment Option Profile available by selecting the investment option name links provided above.
