Managed Advice® provides a participant with an asset allocation mix of funds available within the plan. The asset allocation mix will be automatically rebalanced and reallocated, managing risk and return as participants’ settings and goals change over time. Additional fees and terms and conditions apply to the Managed Advice® service. Participants will continue to bear the fees of the underlying investment options in the Managed Advice® account. Managed Advice® portfolios are subject to the same risks as the underlying asset classes in which they invest. The higher the portfolio’s allocation to stocks the greater the risk. Managed Advice® utilizes models, algorithms and/or calculations ("Models"), which have inherent risks. Models may incorrectly forecast future behavior or produce unexpected results resulting in losses. The success of using Models depends on numerous factors, including the validity, accuracy and completeness of the Model’s development, implementation and maintenance, the Model’s assumptions, factors, algorithms and methodologies, and the accuracy and reliability of the supplied historical or other data. If incorrect data is entered into even a well-founded Model, the resulting information will be incorrect. Investments selected with the use of Models may perform differently than expected as a result of the design of the Model, inputs into the Model, or other factors. *The principal value of the portfolio is never guaranteed. Investment return and principal value will fluctuate with market conditions, and participants may lose money.*
