         Note:   This pyramid is intended solely to illustrate a concept; it is not a promise of investment performance.
                 Investors may differ on the risk level to which a particular asset is assigned. Before making any investment
                 in mutual funds or variable annuities, you should be sure to read the appropriate prospectus or offering
                 documents for a complete discussion of the fees and risks involved.
