Mutual funds are subject to risks and fluctuate in value.

This fund is on the National Association of Insurance Commissioner’s list as a Bond Fund. This designation denotes that the fund meets certain quality and pricing guidelines such as: a rating of AAA or Aaa by a Nationally Recognized Statistical Rating Organization (NRSRO), invests in class 1 bonds that are issued or guaranteed as to payment of principal and interest by agencies and instrumentalities of the U.S Government and allows a maximum 7 day redemption of proceeds. This is subject to an annual review.

Moody's Credit Ratings: Obtained after Moody's evaluates a number of factors, including credit quality, market price exposure and management. Credit Ratings are subject to change and do not remove market risk.

Bond prices are sensitive to changes in interest rates, and a rise in interest rates can cause a decline in their prices.

The value of some mortgage-backed securities may be particularly sensitive to changes in prevailing interest rates, and although the securities are generally supported by some form of government or private insurance, there is no assurance that private guarantors or insurers will meet their obligations.
Effective January 21, 1992, the fund converted its investment policy from intermediate- to longer-term Treasurys to adjustable rate mortgage securities
Past performance is no guarantee of future results.
