These costs, <br />which are not reflected in annual fund operating expenses or in <br />the Example, affect the Fund's performance. During the most recent <br />fiscal year, the Fund's portfolio turnover rate was 70% of the<br />average value of its portfolio.</tt> <div style="display:none">~ http://www.valic.com/role/ExpenseExample_S000008032Member column dei_LegalEntityAxis compact * column rr_ProspectusShareClassAxis compact * row primary compact * ~</div> <div style="display:none">~ http://www.valic.com/role/BarChartData_S000008032Member column dei_LegalEntityAxis compact * column rr_ProspectusShareClassAxis compact * row primary compact * ~</div> <tt>The Fund seeks capital growth, through investment in equity securities of <br />medium capitalization companies using a value-oriented investment approach.</tt> <tt>This Example is intended to help you compare the cost of investing in the Fund<br />with the cost of investing in other mutual funds. The Example assumes that you<br />invest $10,000 in the Fund for the time periods indicated and then redeem all <br />of your shares at the end of those periods. The Example also assumes that your<br />investment has a 5% return each year and that the Fund's operating expenses<br />remain the same and that all fee waivers remain in place only for the period<br />ending December 31, 2013. The Example does not reflect charges imposed by the<br />Variable Contract. See the Variable Contract prospectus for information on such<br />charges. Although your actual costs may be higher or lower, based on these<br />assumptions and the net expenses shown in the fee table, your costs would be:</tt> <tt>The Fund invests, under normal circumstances, at least 80% of net assets in<br />equity securities of mid-capitalization companies. Generally, mid-cap companies<br />will include companies whose market capitalizations, at the time of purchase,<br />range from the market capitalization of the smallest company included in the<br />Russell Midcap&#xAE; Index to the market capitalization of the largest company in the<br />Russell Midcap&#xAE; Index during the most recent 12-month period. As of the most<br />recent annual reconstitution of the Russell Midcap&#xAE; Index on May 31, 2012, the<br />market capitalization range of the companies in the Index was $1.354 billion to<br />$17.398 billion.<br /> <br />The sub-advisers use value-oriented investment approaches to identify companies<br />in which to invest the Fund's assets. Generally, the sub-advisers select stocks<br />that they believe meet one or more of the following criteria: (1) are undervalued <br />relative to other securities in the same industry or market, (2) exhibit good or <br />improving fundamentals, or (3) exhibit an identifiable catalyst that could close <br />the gap between market value and fair value over the next one to two years.<br /> <br />The Fund may invest up to 20% of its total assets in foreign securities. The<br />Fund may also invest in Depositary Receipts, which are instruments issued by a<br />bank that represent an interest in a foreign issuer's securities.<br /> <br />The sub-advisers may routinely hold up to 20% of the Fund's assets in cash, U.S.<br />Government securities and repurchase agreements while seeking to make opportunistic <br />investments in companies that the portfolio managers believe to represent special <br />situations, such as when a company is undergoing change that might cause its market <br />value to grow at a rate faster than the market generally.</tt> MID CAP VALUE FUND Expense Example Investment Objective Of course, past performance is not necessarily an indication of how the Fund will perform in the future. If the value of the assets of the Fund goes down, you could lose money. Principal Risks of Investing in the Fund 0.70 Fees and expenses incurred at the contract level are not reflected in the bar chart or table. If these amounts were reflected, returns would be less than those shown. Performance Information The following Risk/Return Bar Chart and Table illustrate the risks of investing in the Fund by showing changes in the Fund's performance from calendar year to calendar year and comparing the Fund's average annual returns to those of the Russell Midcap®Value Index. Annual Fund Operating Expenses (expenses that you pay each year as a percentage of the value of your investment) Average Annual Total Returns (For the periods ended December 31, 2011) Portfolio Turnover <tt>There can be no assurance that the Fund's investment objective will be met or<br />that the net return on an investment in the Fund will exceed what could have<br />been obtained through other investment or savings vehicles. Shares of the Fund<br />are not bank deposits and are not guaranteed or insured by any bank, government<br />entity or the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation. As with any mutual fund,<br />there is no guarantee that the Fund will be able to achieve its investment<br />objective. If the value of the assets of the Fund goes down, you could lose<br />money.<br />&#xA0;&#xA0;<br />The following is a summary of the principal risks of investing in the Fund.<br /> <br />Active Management Risk: The investment style or strategy used by the Fund may<br />fail to produce the intended result. A sub-adviser's assessment of a particular<br />security or company may prove incorrect, resulting in losses or underperformance.<br /> <br />Equity Securities Risk: The Fund's investments in equity securities are subject<br />to the risk that stock prices will fall and may underperform other asset classes. <br />Individual stock prices fluctuate from day-to-day and may decline significantly. <br />The prices of individual stocks may be negatively affected by poor company <br />results or other factors affecting individual prices, as well as industry and/or <br />economic trends and developments affecting industries or the securities market <br />as a whole.<br /> <br />Value Style Risk: Generally, "value" stocks are stocks of companies that a<br />sub-adviser believes are currently undervalued in the marketplace. A sub-adviser's <br />judgments that a particular security is undervalued in relation to the company's <br />fundamental economic value may prove incorrect and the price of the company's <br />stock may fall or may not approach the value the sub-adviser has placed on it.<br /> <br />Foreign Investment Risk: Investment in foreign securities involves risks due to<br />several factors, such as illiquidity, the lack of public information, changes in<br />the exchange rates between foreign currencies and the U.S. dollar, unfavorable<br />political and legal developments, or economic and financial instability. Foreign<br />companies are not subject to the U.S. accounting and financial reporting<br />standards and may have riskier settlement procedures. U.S. investments that are<br />denominated in foreign currencies or that are traded in foreign markets, or<br />securities of U.S. companies that have significant foreign operations may be<br />subject to foreign investment risk.<br /> <br />Depositary Receipts Risk: Depositary receipts are generally subject to the same<br />risks as the foreign securities that they evidence or into which they may be<br />converted. Depositary receipts may or may not be jointly sponsored by the<br />underlying issuer. The issuers of unsponsored depositary receipts are not<br />obligated to disclose information that is considered material in the United<br />States. Therefore, there may be less information available regarding the issuers<br />and there may not be a correlation between such information and the market value<br />of the depositary receipts. Certain depositary receipts are not listed on an<br />exchange and therefore may be considered to be illiquid securities.<br /> <br />Market Risk: The Fund's share price can fall because of weakness in the broad<br />market, a particular industry, or specific holdings or due to adverse political<br />or economic developments here or abroad, changes in investor psychology, or<br />heavy institutional selling. The price of individual securities may fluctuate, <br />sometimes dramatically, from day to day. The prices of stocks and other equity <br />securities tend to be more volatile than those of fixed-income securities.<br /> <br />Mid-Capitalization Company Risk: Investing primarily in medium capitalization<br />companies carries the risk that due to current market conditions these companies<br />may be out of favor with investors. Stocks of medium capitalization companies<br />may be more volatile than those of larger companies due to, among other reasons,<br />narrower product lines, more limited financial resources and fewer experienced<br />managers.<br /> <br />Risks of Investing in Money Market Securities: An investment in the Fund is<br />subject to the risk that the value of its investments in high-quality short-term<br />obligations ("money market securities") may be subject to changes in interest<br />rates, changes in the rating of any money market security and in the ability of<br />an issuer to make payments of interest and principal.<br /> <br />Special Situations Risk: Small- and medium-sized companies are often involved in<br />"special situations." Securities of such companies may decline in value and<br />adversely affect the Fund's performance if the anticipated benefits of the<br />special situation do not materialize.<br /> <br />U.S. Government Obligations Risk: Unlike U.S. Treasury obligations, securities<br />issued or guaranteed by federal agencies or authorities and U.S.<br />Government-sponsored instrumentalities or enterprises may or may not be backed<br />by the full faith and credit of the U.S. Government and are therefore subject to<br />greater credit risk than securities issued or guaranteed by the U.S. Treasury.</tt> Fees and Expenses of the Fund Principal Investment Strategies of the Fund <tt>The following Risk/Return Bar Chart and Table illustrate the risks of investing<br />in the Fund by showing changes in the Fund's performance from calendar year to<br />calendar year and comparing the Fund's average annual returns to those of the<br />Russell Midcap&#xAE;Value Index. Fees and expenses incurred at the contract level <br />are not reflected in the bar chart or table. If these amounts were reflected,<br />returns would be less than those shown. Of course, past performance is not<br />necessarily an indication of how the Fund will perform in the future.<br /> <br />Wellington Management Company, LLP ("Wellington Management") assumed sub-advisory <br />duties on January 1, 2002. Tocqueville Asset Management, LP ("Tocqueville") was <br />added as additional sub-adviser effective March 21, 2011. Robeco assumed <br />co-sub-advisory duties on December 5, 2011. From November 7, 2005 to December 2, <br />2011, the Fund was co-sub-advised by Nuveen, previously named FAF Advisors.<br />&#xA0;&#xA0;<br />Wellington Management manages approximately 45% of the Fund's assets, Tocqueville <br />manages approximately 30% of the Fund's assets and Robeco manages approximately <br />25% of the Fund's assets. The percentage of the Fund's assets each sub-adviser <br />manages may change from time-to-time at the discretion of Fund's investment <br />adviser, The Variable Annuity Life Insurance Company ("VALIC").<br /> <br />During the periods shown in the bar chart below, the highest return for a<br />quarter was 21.26% (quarter ending June 30, 2003) and the lowest return for a<br />quarter was -22.35% (quarter ending September 30, 2011). For the year-to-date<br />through September 30, 2012, the Fund's return was 15.14%.</tt> <tt>This table describes the fees and expenses that you may pay if you buy <br />and hold shares of the Fund. The Fund's annual operating expenses do <br />not reflect the separate account fees charged in the variable annuity <br />or variable life insurance policy ("Variable Contracts") in which the <br />Fund is offered.

Generally, mid-cap companies will include companies whose market<br />capitalizations, at the time of purchase, range from the market capitalization<br />of the smallest company included in the Russell Midcap Index to the market<br />capitalization of the largest company in the Russell Midcap Index during the<br />most recent 12-month period. As of the most recent annual reconstitution of the<br />Russell Midcap Index on May 31, 2012, the market capitalization range of the<br />companies in the Index was $1.354 billion to $17.398 billion.<br /> <br />The Fund invests primarily in common stocks of companies that the sub-adviser<br />believes have the potential for long-term, above-average earnings growth.<br /> <br />The sub-adviser combines fundamental and quantitative analysis with risk<br />management in identifying investment opportunities and constructing the Fund's<br />portfolio. The sub-adviser considers, among other factors: <br /><br />&#xA0;&#xA0;&#x2022; overall economic and market conditions; and <br /><br />&#xA0;&#xA0;&#x2022; the financial condition and management of a company, including its competitive <br />&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;position, the quality of its balance sheet and earnings, its future prospects, <br />&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;and the potential for growth and stock price appreciation. <br /><br />The sub-adviser may sell a security when the security's price reaches a target<br />set by the sub-adviser, if the sub-adviser believes that there is deterioration<br />in the issuer's financial circumstances or fundamental prospects, or that other<br />investments are more attractive, or for other reasons.<br /> <br />Up to 20% of the Fund's net assets may be invested in other domestic equity<br />securities, including common and preferred stocks and convertible securities. <br />In addition, the Fund may invest in equity securities of small capitalization<br />companies. The Fund, from time to time, may have significant investments in one<br />or more particular sectors.<br /> <br />The Fund may invest up to 25% of its net assets in foreign securities. The Fund<br />may invest directly in foreign securities or indirectly through depository<br />receipts. Depository receipts are receipts issued by a bank or trust company <br />and evidence ownership of underlying securities issued by foreign companies. The<br />Fund does not consider American Depositary Receipts or Canadian securities to be<br />foreign securities.<br /> <br />The Fund may also invest in convertible securities. The Fund may invest in<br />special situations such as companies involved in initial public offerings,<br />tender offers, mergers and other corporate restructurings, and in companies<br />involved in management changes or companies developing new technologies.<br /> <br />The Fund may engage in active and frequent trading of portfolio securities in an<br />effort to achieve its investment objective.</tt> MID CAP GROWTH FUND Expense Example Investment Objective Of course, past performance is not necessarily an indication of how the Fund will perform in the future.

The sub-adviser's assessment of a<br />particular security or company may prove incorrect, resulting in losses or<br />underperformance.<br /> <br />Equity Securities Risk: The Fund's investments in equity securities are subject<br />to the risk that stock prices will fall and may underperform other asset<br />classes. Individual stock prices fluctuate from day-to-day and may decline<br />significantly. The prices of individual stocks may be negatively affected by<br />poor company results or other factors affecting individual prices, as well as<br />industry and/or economic trends and developments affecting industries or the<br />securities market as a whole.<br /> <br />Growth Style Risk: Generally, "growth" stocks are stocks of companies which a<br />sub-adviser believes have anticipated earnings ranging from steady to<br />accelerated growth. Many investors buy growth stocks because of anticipated<br />superior earnings growth, but earnings disappointments often result in sharp<br />price declines. Growth companies usually invest a high portion of earnings in<br />their own businesses so their stocks may lack the dividends that can cushion<br />share prices in a down market. In addition, the value of fast growing stocks <br />may be more sensitive to changes in current or expected earnings than the <br />values of other stocks, as the fast growing stocks trade at higher multiples <br />of current earnings.<br /> <br />Active Trading Risk: High portfolio turnover rates that are associated with<br />active trading may result in higher transaction costs, which can adversely<br />affect the Fund's performance. Active trading tends to be more pronounced <br />during periods of increased market volatility.<br /> <br />Convertible Securities Risk: Convertible security values may be affected by<br />market interest rates, issuer defaults and underlying common stock values;<br />security values may fall if market interest rates rise and rise if market<br />interest rates fall. Additionally, an issuer may have the right to buy back <br />the securities at a time unfavorable to the Fund.<br /> <br />Depositary Receipts Risk: Depositary receipts are generally subject to the same<br />risks as the foreign securities that they evidence or into which they may be<br />converted. Depositary receipts may or may not be jointly sponsored by the<br />underlying issuer. The issuers of unsponsored depositary receipts are not<br />obligated to disclose information that is considered material in the United<br />States. Therefore, there may be less information available regarding these<br />issuers and there may not be a correlation between such information and the<br />market value of the depositary receipts. Certain depositary receipts are not<br />listed on an exchange and therefore may be considered to be illiquid securities.<br /> <br />Foreign Investment Risk: Investment in foreign securities involves risks due to<br />several factors, such as illiquidity, the lack of public information, changes in<br />the exchange rates between foreign currencies and the U.S. dollar, unfavorable<br />political and legal developments, or economic and financial instability. Foreign<br />companies are not subject to the U.S. accounting and financial reporting standards <br />and may have riskier settlement procedures. U.S. investments that are denominated <br />in foreign currencies or that are traded in foreign markets, or securities of U.S. <br />companies that have significant foreign operations may be subject to foreign <br />investment risk.<br /> <br />Market Risk: The Fund's share price can fall because of weakness in the broad<br />market, a particular industry, or specific holdings or due to adverse political<br />or economic developments here or abroad, changes in investor psychology, or<br />heavy institutional selling. The price of individual securities may fluctuate,<br />sometimes dramatically, from day to day. The prices of stocks and other equity<br />securities tend to be more volatile than those of fixed-income securities.<br /> <br />Mid-Capitalization Company Risk: Investing primarily in medium capitalization<br />companies carries the risk that due to current market conditions these companies<br />may be out of favor with investors. Stocks of medium capitalization companies<br />may be more volatile than those of larger companies due to, among other reasons,<br />narrower product lines, more limited financial resources and fewer experienced<br />managers.<br /> <br />Sector Risk: Companies with similar characteristics may be grouped together in<br />broad categories called sectors. Sector risk is the risk that securities of<br />companies within specific sectors of the economy can perform differently than<br />the overall market. This may be due to changes in such things as the regulatory<br />or competitive environment or to changes in investor perceptions regarding a<br />sector. Because the Fund may allocate relatively more assets to certain sectors<br />than others, the Fund's performance may be more susceptible to any developments<br />which affect those sectors emphasized by the Fund.<br /> <br />Small Capitalization Company Risk: Investing primarily in small capitalization<br />companies carries the risk that due to current market conditions these companies<br />may be out of favor with investors. Small companies often are in the early<br />stages of development with limited product lines, markets, or financial resources <br />and managements lacking depth and experience, which may cause their stock prices <br />to be more volatile than those of larger companies. Small company stocks may be <br />less liquid yet subject to abrupt or erratic price movements. It may take a <br />substantial period of time before the Fund realizes a gain on an investment in a <br />small-cap company, if it realizes any gain at all.<br /> <br />Special-Situations Risk: Small companies and emerging growth companies are often<br />involved in "special situations." Securities of special situation companies may<br />decline in value and adversely affect the fund's performance if the anticipated<br />benefits of the special situation do not materialize.</tt> Fees and Expenses of the Fund Principal Investment Strategies of the Fund <tt>The following Risk/Return Bar Chart and Table illustrate the risks of investing<br />in the Fund by showing changes in the Fund's performance from calendar year to<br />calendar year and comparing the Fund's average annual returns to those of the<br />Russell Midcap&#xAE; Growth Index.

The sub-adviser's assessment of a<br />particular security or company may prove incorrect, resulting in losses or<br />underperformance.<br /> <br />Equity Securities Risk: The Fund's investments in equity securities are subject<br />to the risk that stock prices will fall and may underperform other asset classes. <br />Individual stock prices fluctuate from day-to-day and may decline significantly. <br />The prices of individual stocks may be negatively affected by poor company <br />results or other factors affecting individual prices, as well as industry and/or <br />economic trends and developments affecting industries or the securities market <br />as a whole.<br /> <br />Value Style Risk: Generally, "value" stocks are stocks of companies that a<br />sub-adviser believes are currently undervalued in the marketplace. A sub-adviser's <br />judgments that a particular security is undervalued in relation to the company's <br />fundamental economic value may prove incorrect and the price of the company's stock <br />may fall or may not approach the value the sub-adviser has placed on it.<br /> <br />Large Capitalization Company Risk: Investing primarily in large capitalization<br />companies carries the risk that due to current market conditions these companies<br />may be out of favor with investors. Large-cap companies may be unable to respond<br />quickly to new competitive challenges or attain the high growth rate of successful <br />smaller companies.<br /> <br />Market Risk: The Fund's share price can fall because of weakness in the broad<br />market, a particular industry, or specific holdings or due to adverse political<br />or economic developments here or abroad, changes in investor psychology, or<br />heavy institutional selling.

Foreign <br />companies are not subject to the U.S. accounting and financial reporting standards <br />and may have riskier settlement procedures. U.S. investments that are denominated <br />in foreign currencies or that are traded in foreign markets, or securities of U.S.<br />companies that have significant foreign operations may be subject to foreign<br />investment risk.<br /> <br />Depositary Receipts Risk: Depositary receipts are generally subject to the same<br />risks as the foreign securities that they evidence or into which they may be<br />converted. Depositary receipts may or may not be jointly sponsored by the<br />underlying issuer. The issuers of unsponsored depositary receipts are not<br />obligated to disclose information that is considered material in the United<br />States. Therefore, there may be less information available regarding the issuers<br />and there may not be a correlation between such information and the market value<br />of the depositary receipts. Certain depositary receipts are not listed on an<br />exchange and therefore may be considered to be illiquid securities.<br /> <br />Geographic Concentration Risk: If the Fund invests a significant portion of its<br />assets in issuers located in a single country, a limited number of countries, or<br />a particular geographic region, it assumes the risk that economic, political and<br />social conditions in those countries or that region may have a significant impact <br />on its investment performance.<br /> <br />Market Risk: The Fund's share price can fall because of weakness in the broad<br />market, a particular industry, or specific holdings or due to adverse political<br />or economic developments here or abroad, changes in investor psychology, or<br />heavy institutional selling. The price of individual securities may fluctuate,<br />sometimes dramatically, from day to day. The prices of stocks and other equity<br />securities tend to be more volatile than those of fixed-income securities.<br /> <br />Small and Medium Capitalization Company Risk: Companies with smaller market<br />capitalizations (particularly under $1 billion depending on the market) tend to<br />be at early stages of development with limited product lines, market access for<br />products, financial resources, access to new capital, or depth in management. It<br />may be difficult to obtain reliable information and financial data about these<br />companies. Consequently, the securities of smaller companies may not be as<br />readily marketable and may be subject to more abrupt or erratic market movements. <br />Securities of medium sized companies are usually more volatile and entail greater <br />risks than securities of large companies. In addition, small and medium sized <br />companies may be traded in over-the-counter (OTC) markets as opposed to being <br />traded on an exchange. OTC securities may trade less frequently and in smaller <br />volume than exchange-listed stocks, which may cause these securities to be more <br />volatile than exchange-listed stocks and may make it more difficult to buy and <br />sell these securities at prevailing market prices. The Fund determines relative <br />market capitalizations using U.S. standards. Accordingly, the Fund's non-U.S. <br />investments may have large capitalizations relative to market capitalizations <br />of companies based outside the United States.</tt> Fees and Expenses of the Fund Principal Investment Strategies of the Fund <tt>The following Risk/Return Bar Chart and Table illustrate the risks of investing<br />in the Fund by showing changes in the Fund's performance from calendar year to<br />calendar year and comparing the Fund's average annual returns to those of the<br />MSCI EAFE Small Cap Index (net).

As with any mutual fund,<br />there is no guarantee that the Fund will be able to achieve its investment<br />objective. If the value of the assets of the Fund goes down, you could lose<br />money.<br /> <br />The following is a summary of the principal risks of investing in the Fund.<br /> <br />Junk Bond Risk: High yielding, high risk fixed-income securities, or junk bonds,<br />may involve significantly greater credit risk, market risk and interest rate<br />risk compared to higher rated fixed-income securities because issuers of lower<br />rated fixed-income securities are less secure financially and their securities<br />are more sensitive to downturns in the economy. The market for lower rated<br />fixed-income securities may not be as liquid as that for more highly rated<br />securities.<br /> <br />Active Management Risk: The investment style or strategy used by the Fund may<br />fail to produce the intended result. The sub-adviser's assessment of a<br />particular security or company may prove incorrect, resulting in losses or<br />underperformance.<br /> <br />Call or Prepayment Risk: During periods of falling interest rates, a bond issuer<br />may "call" a bond to repay it before its maturity date. The Fund may only be<br />able to invest the bond's proceeds at lower interest rates, resulting in a<br />decline in the Fund's income.<br /> <br />Credit Risk: The issuer of a fixed-income security owned by the Fund may be<br />unable to make interest or principal payments.<br /> <br />Foreign Investment Risk: Investment in foreign securities involves risks due to<br />several factors, such as illiquidity, the lack of public information, changes in<br />the exchange rates between foreign currencies and the U.S. dollar, unfavorable<br />political and legal developments, or economic and financial instability. Foreign<br />companies are not subject to the U.S. accounting and financial reporting<br />standards and may have riskier settlement procedures. U.S. investments that are<br />denominated in foreign currencies or that are traded in foreign markets, or<br />securities of U.S. companies that have significant foreign operations may be<br />subject to foreign investment risk.<br /> <br />Interest Rate Risk: The value of fixed-income securities may decline when<br />interest rates go up or increase when interest rates go down. The interest<br />earned on fixed-income securities may decline when interest rates go down or<br />increase when interest rates go up. Longer-term and lower coupon bonds tend to<br />be more sensitive to changes in interest rates.<br /> <br />Market Risk: The Fund's share price can fall because of weakness in the broad<br />market, a particular industry, or specific holdings or due to adverse political<br />or economic developments here or abroad, changes in investor psychology, or<br />heavy institutional selling. The price of individual securities may fluctuate,<br />sometimes dramatically, from day to day. The prices of stocks and other equity<br />securities tend to be more volatile than those of fixed-income securities.</tt> Fees and Expenses of the Fund Principal Investment Strategies of the Fund <tt>The following Risk/Return Bar Chart and Table illustrate the risks of investing<br />in the Fund by showing changes in the Fund's performance from calendar year to<br />calendar year and comparing the Fund's average annual returns to those of the<br />Citigroup High-Yield Market Index.

The sub-adviser's assessment of a particular <br />security or company may prove incorrect, resulting in losses or underperformance.<br /> <br />Active Trading Risk: High portfolio turnover rates that are associated with<br />active trading may result in higher transaction costs, which can adversely<br />affect the Fund's performance. Active trading tends to be more pronounced <br />during periods of increased market volatility.<br /> <br />Credit Risk: The issuer of a fixed-income security owned by the Fund may be<br />unable to make interest or principal payments.<br /> <br />Foreign Investment Risk: Investment in foreign securities involves risks due to<br />several factors, such as illiquidity, the lack of public information, changes in<br />the exchange rates between foreign currencies and the U.S. dollar, unfavorable<br />political and legal developments, or economic and financial instability. Foreign<br />companies are not subject to the U.S. accounting and financial reporting standards <br />and may have riskier settlement procedures. U.S. investments that are denominated <br />in foreign currencies or that are traded in foreign markets, or securities of U.S. <br />companies that have significant foreign operations may be subject to foreign <br />investment risk.<br /> <br />Interest Rate Risk: The value of fixed-income securities may decline when interest <br />rates go up or increase when interest rates go down.

The price of individual securities may fluctuate,<br />sometimes dramatically, from day to day. The prices of stocks and other equity<br />securities tend to be more volatile than those of fixed-income securities.<br /> <br />Mortgage Risk: Mortgage-related securities are similar to other debt securities<br />in that they are subject to credit risk and interest rate risk. Mortgage-related<br />securities may be issued or guaranteed by the U.S. Government, its agencies or<br />instrumentalities or may be non-guaranteed securities issued by private issuers.<br />These securities are also subject to the risk that issuers will prepay the<br />principal more quickly or more slowly than expected, which could cause the Fund<br />to invest the proceeds in less attractive investments or increase the volatility<br />of their prices.<br /> <br />Non-Mortgage Asset-Backed Securities Risk: Certain non-mortgage asset-backed<br />securities are issued by private parties rather than the U.S. Government or its<br />agencies or government-sponsored entities. If a private issuer fails to pay<br />interest or repay principal, the assets backing these securities may be<br />insufficient to support the payments on the securities.<br /> <br />U.S. Government Obligations Risk: Unlike U.S. Treasury obligations, securities<br />issued or guaranteed by federal agencies or authorities and U.S.<br />Government-sponsored instrumentalities or enterprises may or may not be backed<br />by the full faith and credit of the U.S. Government and are therefore subject to<br />greater credit risk than securities issued or guaranteed by the U.S. Treasury.</tt> Fees and Expenses of the Fund Principal Investment Strategies of the Fund <tt>The following Risk/Return Bar Chart and Table illustrate the risks of investing<br />in the Fund by showing changes in the Fund's performance from calendar year to<br />calendar year and comparing the Fund's average annual returns to those of the<br />Barclays U.S. Aggregate Bond Index.

High portfolio turnover rates of the Underlying Funds can <br />adversely affect the Fund's performance. Active trading tends to be more pronounced <br />during periods of increased market volatility.<br /> <br />Affiliated Fund Risk: In managing the Fund that invests in Underlying Funds, the<br />sub-adviser has the authority to select and substitute the Underlying Funds. The<br />sub-adviser may be subject to potential conflicts of interest in allocating the<br />Fund's assets among the various Underlying Funds because the sub-adviser receives <br />fees in connection with its management of certain of the Underlying Funds.<br /> <br />Call or Prepayment Risk: During periods of falling interest rates, a bond issuer<br />may "call" a bond to repay it before its maturity date. An Underlying Fund may<br />only be able to invest the bond's proceeds at lower interest rates, resulting in<br />a decline in the Underlying Fund's income.<br /> <br />Credit Risk: The issuer of a fixed-income security owned by an Underlying Fund<br />may be unable to make interest or principal payments.<br /> <br />Equity Securities Risk: The Underlying Funds may invest in equity securities,<br />which are subject to the risk that stock prices will fall and may underperform<br />other asset classes. Individual stock prices fluctuate from day-to-day and may<br />decline significantly. The prices of individual stocks may be negatively<br />affected by poor company results or other factors affecting individual prices,<br />as well as industry and/or economic trends and developments affecting industries<br />or the securities market as a whole.<br /> <br />Foreign Investment Risk: The Underlying Funds may invest in foreign securities.<br />Investment in foreign securities involves risks due to several factors, such as<br />illiquidity, the lack of public information, changes in the exchange rates<br />between foreign currencies and the U.S. dollar, unfavorable political and legal<br />developments, or economic and financial instability. Foreign companies are not<br />subject to the U.S. accounting and financial reporting standards and may have<br />riskier settlement procedures. U.S. investments that are denominated in foreign<br />currencies or that are traded in foreign markets, or securities of U.S.<br />companies that have significant foreign operations may be subject to foreign<br />investment risk.<br /> <br />Interest Rate Risk: The Underlying Funds may invest in fixed-income securities.<br />The value of fixed-income securities may decline when interest rates go up or<br />increase when interest rates go down. The interest earned on fixed-income<br />securities may decline when interest rates go down or increase when interest<br />rates go up. Longer-term and lower coupon bonds tend to be more sensitive to<br />changes in interest rates.<br /> <br />Investment Company Risk: The risks of the Fund owning shares of other investment<br />companies such as the Underlying Funds involve substantially the same risks as<br />investing directly in the securities held by the Underlying Funds. An investment<br />company may not achieve its investment objective or execute its investment<br />strategy effectively, which may adversely affect the Fund's performance. In<br />addition, the total return from investments in other investment companies will<br />be reduced by the operating expenses and fees of the investment company. <br /><br />Large Capitalization Company Risk: The Underlying Funds may invest in large<br />capitalization companies. Investing primarily in large capitalization companies<br />carries the risk that due to current market conditions these companies may be<br />out of favor with investors. Large-cap companies may be unable to respond<br />quickly to new competitive challenges or attain the high growth rate of<br />successful smaller companies.<br /> <br />Junk Bond Risk: The Underlying Funds may invest in high yielding, high risk<br />fixed-income securities (often referred to as "junk bonds"), which typically<br />involve significantly greater credit risk, market risk and interest rate risk<br />compared to higher rated fixed-income securities because issuers of lower rated<br />fixed-income securities. Issuers of junk bonds are less secure financially and<br />their securities are more sensitive to downturns in the economy. The market for<br />junk bonds may not be as liquid as that for more highly rated securities.<br /> <br />Market Risk: The share price of the Underlying Funds and, as a result, the share<br />price of the Fund can fall because of weakness in the broad market, a particular<br />industry, or specific holdings or due to adverse political or economic developments <br />here or abroad, changes in investor psychology, or heavy institutional selling. The <br />price of individual securities may fluctuate, sometimes dramatically, from day to <br />day. The prices of stocks and other equity securities tend to be more volatile <br />than those of fixed-income securities.<br /> <br />Model Risk: The Fund's asset allocation model may fail to produce the optimal<br />portfolio allocation.<br /> <br />Real Estate Investments Risk: The Underlying Funds may invest in real estate<br />securities. Securities of companies in the real estate industry are sensitive to<br />several factors, such as changes in real estate values, interest rates, cash<br />flow, occupancy rates, and greater company liabilities.<br /> <br />Small and Medium Capitalization Company Risk: The Underlying Funds may invest in<br />small- and medium-capitalization companies. Securities of small- and mid-cap<br />companies are usually more volatile and entail greater risks than securities of<br />large companies.</tt> Fees and Expenses of the Fund Principal Investment Strategies of the Fund <tt>The following Risk/Return Bar Chart and Table illustrate the risks of investing<br />in the Fund by showing changes in the Fund's performance from calendar year to<br />calendar year and comparing the Fund's average annual returns to those of the<br />S&amp;P 500&#xAE; and a blended index.

If the value of the assets of the Fund goes down, you could lose<br />money.<br /> <br />The following is a summary of the principal risks of investing in the Fund.<br /> <br />Active Management Risk: The investment style or strategy used by the Fund may<br />fail to produce the intended result. The sub-adviser's assessment of a<br />particular security or company may prove incorrect, resulting in losses or<br />underperformance.<br /> <br />Active Trading Risk: High portfolio turnover rates that are associated with<br />active trading may result in higher transaction costs, which can adversely<br />affect the Fund's performance. Active trading tends to be more pronounced <br />during periods of increased market volatility.<br /> <br />Convertible Securities Risk: Convertible security values may be affected by<br />market interest rates, issuer defaults and underlying common stock values;<br />security values may fall if market interest rates rise and rise if market<br />interest rates fall. Additionally, an issuer may have the right to buy back <br />the securities at a time unfavorable to the Fund.<br /> <br />Depositary Receipts Risk: Depositary receipts are generally subject to the <br />same risks as the foreign securities that they evidence or into which they <br />may be converted. Depositary receipts may or may not be jointly sponsored <br />by the underlying issuer. The issuers of unsponsored depositary receipts are <br />not obligated to disclose information that is considered material in the <br />United States. Therefore, there may be less information available regarding <br />the issuers and there may not be a correlation between such information and <br />the market value of the depositary receipts. Certain depositary receipts are <br />not listed on an exchange and therefore may be considered to be illiquid <br />securities.<br /> <br />Equity Securities Risk: The Fund's investments in equity securities are subject<br />to the risk that stock prices will fall and may underperform other asset classes. <br />Individual stock prices fluctuate from day-to-day and may decline significantly. <br />The prices of individual stocks may be negatively affected by poor company <br />results or other factors affecting individual prices, as well as industry and/or <br />economic trends and developments affecting industries or the securities market <br />as a whole.<br /> <br />Large Capitalization Company Risk: Investing primarily in large capitalization<br />companies carries the risk that due to current market conditions these companies<br />may be out of favor with investors.

The price of individual securities may fluctuate,<br />sometimes dramatically, from day to day. The prices of stocks and other equity<br />securities tend to be more volatile than those of fixed-income securities.<br /> <br />Small and Medium Capitalization Company Risk: The Securities of small- and<br />mid-cap companies are usually more volatile and entail greater risks than<br />securities of large companies.<br /> <br />Warrant Risk: A warrant entitles the holder to purchase a specified amount of<br />securities at a pre-determined price. Warrants may not track the value of the <br />securities the holder is entitled to purchase and may expire worthless if the <br />market price of the securities is below the exercise price of the warrant.</tt> Fees and Expenses of the Fund Principal Investment Strategies of the Fund <tt>The following Risk/Return Bar Chart and Table illustrate the risks of <br />investing in the Fund by showing changes in the Fund's performance from <br />calendar year to calendar year and comparing the Fund's average annual <br />returns to those of the Russell 1000&#xAE; Growth Index.

Active trading tends to be more pronounced during<br />periods of increased market volatility.<br /> <br />Call or Prepayment Risk: During periods of falling interest rates, a bond issuer<br />may "call" a bond to repay it before its maturity date. The Fund may only be<br />able to invest the bond's proceeds at lower interest rates, resulting in a<br />decline in the Fund's income.<br /> <br />Credit Risk: The issuer of a fixed-income security owned by the Fund may be<br />unable to make interest or principal payments.<br /> <br />Emerging Markets Risk: In addition to the risks associated with investments in<br />foreign securities, emerging market securities are subject to additional risks,<br />which cause these securities generally to be more volatile than securities of<br />issuers located in developed countries.<br /> <br />Foreign Investment Risk: Investment in foreign securities involves risks due to<br />several factors, such as illiquidity, the lack of public information, changes in<br />the exchange rates between foreign currencies and the U.S. dollar, unfavorable<br />political and legal developments, or economic and financial instability. Foreign<br />companies are not subject to the U.S. accounting and financial reporting standards <br />and may have riskier settlement procedures. U.S. investments that are denominated <br />in foreign currencies or that are traded in foreign markets, or securities of U.S. <br />companies that have significant foreign operations may be subject to foreign <br />investment risk.<br /> <br />Interest Rate Risk: The value of fixed-income securities may decline when<br />interest rates go up or increase when interest rates go down. The interest<br />earned on fixed-income securities may decline when interest rates go down or<br />increase when interest rates go up. Longer-term and lower coupon bonds tend to<br />be more sensitive to changes in interest rates.<br /> <br />Loan Risk: Declines in prevailing interest rates may increase prepayments of<br />loans and may expose the Fund to a lower rate of return if it reinvests the<br />repaid principal in loans with lower yields. No active trading market may exist<br />for certain loans, which may impair the ability of the Fund to realize the full<br />value of such loans in the event of the need to liquidate such assets. Moreover, <br />adverse market conditions may impair the liquidity of some actively traded loans.<br /> <br />Junk Bond Risk: High yielding, high risk fixed-income securities (often referred<br />to as "junk bonds"), may involve significantly greater credit risk, market risk<br />and interest rate risk compared to higher rated fixed-income securities because<br />issuers of lower rated fixed-income securities are less secure financially and<br />their securities are more sensitive to downturns in the economy. The market for<br />lower rated fixed-income securities may not be as liquid as that for more highly<br />rated securities.<br /> <br />Market Risk: The Fund's share price can fall because of weakness in the broad<br />market, a particular industry, or specific holdings or due to adverse political<br />or economic developments here or abroad, changes in investor psychology, or<br />heavy institutional selling. The price of individual securities may fluctuate,<br />sometimes dramatically, from day to day. The prices of stocks and other equity<br />securities tend to be more volatile than those of fixed-income securities.<br /> <br />Mortgage- and Asset-Backed Securities Risk: Mortgage- and asset-backed<br />securities represent interests in "pools" of mortgages or other assets,<br />including consumer loans or receivables held in trust. The characteristics of<br />these mortgage-backed and asset-backed securities differ from traditional<br />fixed-income securities. Mortgage-backed securities are subject to "prepayment<br />risk" and "extension risk." Prepayment risk is the risk that, when interest<br />rates fall, certain types of obligations will be paid off by the obligor more<br />quickly than originally anticipated and the Fund may have to invest the proceeds<br />in securities with lower yields. Extension risk is the risk that, when interest<br />rates rise, certain obligations will be paid off by the obligor more slowly than<br />anticipated, causing the value of these securities to fall. Small movements in<br />interest rates (both increases and decreases) may quickly and significantly<br />reduce the value of certain mortgage-backed securities. These securities also<br />are subject to risk of default on the underlying mortgage, particularly during<br />periods of economic downturn.<br /> <br />U.S. Government Obligations Risk: Unlike U.S. Treasury obligations, securities<br />issued or guaranteed by federal agencies or authorities and U.S.<br />Government-sponsored instrumentalities or enterprises may or may not be backed<br />by the full faith and credit of the U.S. Government and are therefore subject to<br />greater credit risk than securities issued or guaranteed by the U.S. Treasury.</tt> Fees and Expenses of the Fund Principal Investment Strategies of the Fund <tt>The following Risk/Return Bar Chart and Table illustrate the risks of investing<br />in the Fund by showing changes in the Fund's performance from calendar year to<br />calendar year and comparing the Fund's average annual returns to those of the<br />Barclays U.S. Aggregate Bond Index.

As with any mutual fund,<br />there is no guarantee that the Fund will be able to achieve its investment<br />objective. If the value of the assets of the Fund goes down, you could lose<br />money.<br /> <br />The following is a summary of the principal risks of investing in the Fund.<br />&#xA0;&#xA0;<br />Equity Securities Risk: The Fund's investments in equity securities are subject<br />to the risk that stock prices will fall and may underperform other asset classes. <br />Individual stock prices fluctuate from day-to-day and may decline significantly. <br />The prices of individual stocks may be negatively affected by poor company <br />results or other factors affecting individual prices, as well as industry and/or <br />economic trends and developments affecting industries or the securities market <br />as a whole.<br /> <br />Preferred Stock Risk: Unlike common stock, preferred stock generally pays a<br />fixed dividend from a company's earnings and may have a preference over common<br />stock on the distribution of a company's assets in the event of bankruptcy or<br />liquidation. Preferred stockholders' liquidation rights are subordinate to the<br />company's debt holders and creditors. If interest rates rise, the fixed dividend<br />on preferred stocks may be less attractive and the price of preferred stocks may<br />decline. Preferred stockholders typically do not have voting rights.<br /> <br />Convertible Securities Risk: The values of the convertible securities in which<br />the Fund may invest also will be affected by market interest rates, the risk<br />that the issuer may default on interest or principal payments and the value of<br />the underlying common stock into which these securities may be converted.<br />Specifically, since these types of convertible securities pay fixed interest and<br />dividends, their values may fall if market interest rates rise and rise if market <br />interest rates fall. At times a convertible security may be more susceptible to <br />fixed-income security related risks, while at other times such a security may be <br />more susceptible to equity security related risks. Additionally, an issuer may <br />have the right to buy back certain of the convertible securities at a time and <br />a price that is unfavorable to the Fund.<br /> <br />Foreign Investment Risk: Investment in foreign securities involves risks due to<br />several factors, such as illiquidity, the lack of public information, changes in<br />the exchange rates between foreign currencies and the U.S. dollar, unfavorable<br />political and legal developments, or economic and financial instability. Foreign<br />companies are not subject to the U.S. accounting and financial reporting<br />standards and may have riskier settlement procedures. U.S. investments that are<br />denominated in foreign currencies or that are traded in foreign markets, or<br />securities of U.S. companies that have significant foreign operations may be<br />subject to foreign investment risk.<br /> <br />Market Risk: The Fund's share price can fall because of weakness in the broad<br />market, a particular industry, or specific holdings or due to adverse political<br />or economic developments here or abroad, changes in investor psychology, or<br />heavy institutional selling. The price of individual securities may fluctuate,<br />sometimes dramatically, from day to day. The prices of stocks and other equity<br />securities tend to be more volatile than those of fixed-income securities.<br /> <br />Social Criteria Risk: Social criteria screening limits the availability of<br />investment opportunities for the Fund. If the Fund changes its social criteria<br />or a company stops meeting the Fund's social criteria, the Fund will sell the<br />affected investments even if this means the Fund loses money.</tt> Fees and Expenses of the Fund Principal Investment Strategies of the Fund <tt>The following Risk/Return Bar Chart and Table illustrate the risks of investing<br />in the Fund by showing changes in the Fund's performance from calendar year to<br />calendar year and comparing the Fund's average annual returns to those of the<br />S&amp;P 500&#xAE; Index.

A sub-adviser's assessment of a particular<br />security or company may prove incorrect, resulting in losses or<br />underperformance.<br /> <br />Equity Securities Risk: A Fund's investments in equity securities are subject to<br />the risk that stock prices will fall and may underperform other asset classes.<br />Individual stock prices fluctuate from day-to-day and may decline significantly. <br />The prices of individual stocks may be negatively affected by poor company results <br />or other factors affecting individual prices, as well as industry and/or economic<br />trends and developments affecting industries or the securities market as a whole.<br /> <br />Value Style Risk: Generally, "value" stocks are stocks of companies that a<br />sub-adviser believes are currently undervalued in the marketplace. A sub-adviser's <br />judgments that a particular security is undervalued in relation to the company's <br />fundamental economic value may prove incorrect and the price of the company's <br />stock may fall or may not approach the value the sub-adviser has placed on it.<br /> <br />Active Trading Risk: High portfolio turnover rates that are associated with active <br />trading may result in higher transaction costs, which can adversely affect the <br />Fund's performance. Active trading tends to be more pronounced during periods of <br />increased market volatility.<br /> <br />Market Risk: The Fund's share price can fall because of weakness in the broad<br />market, a particular industry, or specific holdings or due to adverse political<br />or economic developments here or abroad, changes in investor psychology, or<br />heavy institutional selling. The price of individual securities may fluctuate,<br />sometimes dramatically, from day to day. The prices of stocks and other equity<br />securities tend to be more volatile than those of fixed-income securities.<br /> <br />Small Capitalization Company Risk: Investing primarily in small capitalization<br />companies carries the risk that due to current market conditions these companies<br />may be out of favor with investors. Small companies often are in the early<br />stages of development with limited product lines, markets, or financial resources <br />and managements lacking depth and experience, which may cause their stock prices <br />to be more volatile than those of larger companies. Small company stocks may be <br />less liquid yet subject to abrupt or erratic price movements.

Performance Information The following Risk/Return Bar Chart and Table illustrate the risks of investing in the Fund by showing changes in the Fund's performance from calendar year to calendar year and comparing the Fund's average annual returns to those of the Citi Treasury 3 Month Index. Annual Fund Operating Expenses (expenses that you pay each year as a percentage of the value of your investment) Average Annual Total Returns (For the periods ended December 31, 2011) Although the Fund seeks to preserve the value of your investment at $1.00 per share, it is possible to lose money by investing in the Fund. <tt>There can be no assurance that the Fund's investment objective will be met or<br />that the net return on an investment in the Fund will exceed what could have<br />been obtained through other investment or savings vehicles. As with any mutual<br />fund, there is no guarantee that the Fund will be able to achieve its investment<br />objective. Although the Fund seeks to preserve the value of your investment at<br />$1.00 per share, it is possible to lose money by investing in the Fund. An<br />investment in the Fund is not insured or guaranteed by the Federal Deposit<br />Insurance Corporation or any other government agency. Because of the following<br />principal risks the value of your investment may fluctuate and you could lose<br />money:<br /> <br />The following is a summary of the principal risks of investing in the Fund.<br /> <br />Credit Risk: The issuer of a fixed-income security owned by the Fund may be<br />unable to make interest or principal payments.<br /> <br />Financial Services Exposure Risk: A substantial portion of the Fund's portfolio<br />may be comprised of money market instruments issued by banks. As a result, <br />events affecting issuers in the financial services industry, including changes in <br />government regulation and interest rates and economic downturns, may impact<br />the creditworthiness of such issuers or their ability to honor their financial<br />obligations. These events could have a negative impact on the Fund.<br /> <br />Interest Rate Risk: The value of fixed-income securities may decline when interest <br />rates go up or increase when interest rates go down. The interest earned on <br />fixed-income securities may decline when interest rates go down or increase when <br />interest rates go up. Longer-term and lower coupon bonds tend to be more sensitive <br />to changes in interest rates.<br /> <br />Risks of Investing in Money Market Securities: An investment in the Fund is<br />subject to the risk that the value of its investments in high-quality short-term<br />obligations ("money market securities") may be subject to changes in interest<br />rates, changes in the rating of any money market security and in the ability of<br />an issuer to make payments of interest and principal.<br /> <br />U.S. Government Obligations Risk: Unlike U.S. Treasury obligations, securities issued <br />or guaranteed by federal agencies or authorities and U.S. Government-sponsored <br />instrumentalities or enterprises may or may not be backed by the full faith and credit <br />of the U.S. Government and are therefore subject to greater credit risk than securities <br />issued or guaranteed by the U.S. Treasury.</tt> Fees and Expenses of the Fund Principal Investment Strategies of the Fund <tt>The following Risk/Return Bar Chart and Table illustrate the risks of investing<br />in the Fund by showing changes in the Fund's performance from calendar year to<br />calendar year and comparing the Fund's average annual returns to those of the<br />Citi Treasury 3 Month Index.

The Fund invests <br />its assets in Underlying Funds that invest in securities that seek growth of <br />capital, such as stocks, and securities that generate current income, such as <br />bonds and U.S. government-issued securities. The Fund generally has a lower level <br />of risk than the Aggressive Growth Lifestyle Fund but a greater level of risk than <br />the Conservative Growth Lifestyle Fund.<br /> <br />The Fund's indirect holdings are primarily in domestic and foreign fixed-income<br />securities and equity securities of domestic large-capitalization companies. The<br />Fund's indirect holdings may also include foreign and domestic equity securities<br />of medium- and small-capitalization companies and lower rated fixed-income<br />securities (often referred to as "junk bonds").<br /> <br />Asset allocation is the most critical investment decision that you make as an<br />investor. Selecting the appropriate combination should be based on your personal<br />investment goals, time horizons and risk tolerance. The projected asset<br />allocation ranges for the Fund are as follows: <br /><br />&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;-&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;fixed-income securities&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;30%-70% <br />&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;-&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;domestic equity securities&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;30%-50% <br />&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;-&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;international equity securities&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;0%-20% <br />&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;-&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;real estate securities&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;0%-10%&#xA0;&#xA0;<br /><br />This Fund is managed so that it can serve as a complete investment program for<br />you or as a core part of your larger portfolio. The Underlying Funds have been<br />selected to represent a reasonable spectrum of investment options for the Fund.<br />The sub-adviser has based the target investment percentages for the Fund on the<br />degree to which it believes the Underlying Funds, in combination, to be<br />appropriate for the Fund's investment objective.

Annual Fund Operating Expenses (expenses that you pay each year as a percentage of the value of your investment) Average Annual Total Returns (For the periods ended December 31, 2011) Portfolio Turnover <tt>There can be no assurance that the Fund's investment objective will be met or<br />that the net return on an investment in the Fund will exceed what could have<br />been obtained through other investment or savings vehicles. Shares of the Fund<br />are not bank deposits and are not guaranteed or insured by any bank, government<br />entity or the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation. As with any mutual fund,<br />there is no guarantee that the Fund will be able to achieve its investment<br />objective. If the value of the assets of the Fund goes down, you could lose<br />money.<br /> <br />The risks of investing in the Fund include indirect risks associated with the<br />Fund's investments in Underlying Funds. The value of your investment in the Fund<br />may be affected by one or more of the following risks, which are described in<br />more detail in the sections "Additional Information About the Fund's Investment<br />Strategies and Investment Risks" and the "Investment Glossary" in the<br />Prospectus, any of which could cause the Fund's return, the price of the Fund's<br />shares or the Fund's yield to fluctuate. Please note that there are many other<br />circumstances that could adversely affect your investment and prevent the Fund<br />from reaching its objective, which are not described here.<br /> <br />Active Trading Risk: The Underlying Funds may actively trade, which is associated <br />with high portfolio turnover rates and which may result in higher transaction <br />costs to the Underlying Fund. High portfolio turnover rates of the Underlying <br />Funds can adversely affect the Fund's performance. Active trading tends to be <br />more pronounced during periods of increased market volatility.<br /> <br />Affiliated Fund Risk: In managing the Fund that invests in Underlying Funds, the<br />sub-adviser has the authority to select and substitute the Underlying Funds. The<br />sub-adviser may be subject to potential conflicts of interest in allocating the<br />Fund's assets among the various Underlying Funds because the sub-adviser receives <br />fees in connection with its management of certain of the Underlying Funds.<br /> <br />Call or Prepayment Risk: During periods of falling interest rates, a bond issuer<br />may "call" a bond to repay it before its maturity date. An Underlying Fund may<br />only be able to invest the bond's proceeds at lower interest rates, resulting in<br />a decline in the Underlying Fund's income.<br /> <br />Credit Risk: The issuer of a fixed-income security owned by the Fund may be<br />unable to make interest or principal payments.<br /> <br />Equity Securities Risk: The Underlying Funds may invest in equity securities,<br />which are subject to the risk that stock prices will fall and may underperform<br />other asset classes. Individual stock prices fluctuate from day-to-day and may<br />decline significantly. The prices of individual stocks may be negatively<br />affected by poor company results or other factors affecting individual prices,<br />as well as industry and/or economic trends and developments affecting industries<br />or the securities market as a whole.<br /> <br />Foreign Investment Risk: The Underlying Funds may invest in foreign securities.<br />Investment in foreign securities involves risks due to several factors, such as<br />illiquidity, the lack of public information, changes in the exchange rates<br />between foreign currencies and the U.S. dollar, unfavorable political and legal<br />developments, or economic and financial instability. Foreign companies are not<br />subject to the U.S. accounting and financial reporting standards and may have<br />riskier settlement procedures. U.S. investments that are denominated in foreign<br />currencies or that are traded in foreign markets, or securities of U.S.<br />companies that have significant foreign operations may be subject to foreign<br />investment risk.<br /> <br />Interest Rate Risk: The Underlying Funds may invest in fixed-income securities.<br />The value of fixed-income securities may decline when interest rates go up or<br />increase when interest rates go down. The interest earned on fixed-income<br />securities may decline when interest rates go down or increase when interest<br />rates go up. Longer-term and lower coupon bonds tend to be more sensitive to<br />changes in interest rates.<br /> <br />Investment Company Risk: The risks of the Fund owning shares of other investment<br />companies such as the Underlying Funds involve substantially the same risks as<br />investing directly in the securities held by the Underlying Funds. An investment<br />company may not achieve its investment objective or execute its investment<br />strategy effectively, which may adversely affect the Fund's performance. In<br />addition, the total return from investments in other investment companies will<br />be reduced by the operating expenses and fees of the investment company. <br /><br />Large Capitalization Company Risk: The Underlying Funds may invest in large<br />capitalization companies. Investing primarily in large capitalization companies<br />carries the risk that due to current market conditions these companies may be<br />out of favor with investors. Large-cap companies may be unable to respond<br />quickly to new competitive challenges or attain the high growth rate of<br />successful smaller companies.<br /> <br />Junk Bond Risk: The Underlying Funds may invest in high yielding, high risk<br />fixed-income securities (often referred to as "junk bonds"), which typically<br />involve significantly greater credit risk, market risk and interest rate risk<br />compared to higher rated fixed-income securities. Issuers of junk bonds are less<br />secure financially and their securities are more sensitive to downturns in the<br />economy. The market for junk bonds may not be as liquid as that for more highly<br />rated securities.<br /> <br />Market Risk: The share price of the Underlying Funds and, as a result, the share<br />price of the Fund can fall because of weakness in the broad market, a particular<br />industry, or specific holdings or due to adverse political or economic developments <br />here or abroad, changes in investor psychology, or heavy institutional selling. <br />The price of individual securities may fluctuate, sometimes dramatically, from <br />day to day. The prices of stocks and other equity securities tend to be more <br />volatile than those of fixed-income securities.<br /> <br />Model Risk: The Fund's asset allocation model may fail to produce the optimal<br />portfolio allocation.<br /> <br />Real Estate Investments Risk: The Underlying Funds may invest in real estate<br />securities. Securities of companies in the real estate industry are sensitive to<br />several factors, such as changes in real estate values, interest rates, cash<br />flow, occupancy rates, and greater company liabilities.<br /> <br />Small and Medium Capitalization Company Risk: The Underlying Funds may invest in<br />small- and medium-capitalization companies. Securities of small- and mid-cap<br />companies are usually more volatile and entail greater risks than securities of<br />large companies.</tt> Fees and Expenses of the Fund Principal Investment Strategies of the Fund <tt>The following Risk/Return Bar Chart and Table illustrate the risks of investing<br />in the Fund by showing changes in the Fund's performance from calendar year to<br />calendar year and comparing the Fund's average annual returns to those of the<br />S&amp;P 500&#xAE; Index and a blended index.

A portion of the Fund's indirect holdings may also include fixed-income <br />securities of foreign issuers. The Fund's indirect holdings in fixed- income <br />securities may include high yielding, high risk fixed-income securities (often <br />referred to as "junk bonds").<br /> <br />Asset allocation is the most critical investment decision that you make as an<br />investor. Selecting the appropriate combination should be based on your personal<br />investment goals, time horizons and risk tolerance. The projected asset<br />allocation ranges for the Fund are as follows:<br /><br />&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;-&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;domestic equity securities&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;45%- 70%<br />&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;-&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;fixed-income securities&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;10%- 50%<br />&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;-&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;international equity securities&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;5%- 25% <br />&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;-&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;real estate securities&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;&#xA0;0%- 15% <br /><br />This Fund is managed so that it can serve as a complete investment program for<br />you or as a core part of your larger portfolio.<br /> <br />The Underlying Funds have been selected to represent a reasonable spectrum of<br />investment options for the Fund. The sub-adviser has based the target investment<br />percentages for the Fund on the degree to which it believes the Underlying<br />Funds, in combination, to be appropriate for the Fund's investment objective.<br />The sub-adviser may change the asset allocation ranges and the particular<br />Underlying Funds in which the Fund may invest from time to time.<br /> <br />The Underlying Funds in which the Fund invests may engage in active and frequent<br />trading of portfolio securities in an effort to achieve their investment objectives.</tt> AGGRESSIVE GROWTH LIFESTYLE FUND The Total Annual Fund Operating Expenses for the Fund does not correlate to the ratio of net expenses to average net assets provided in the Financial Highlights table of the annual report, which reflects the net operating expenses of the Fund (0.10%) and does not include Acquired Fund Fees and Expenses. "Acquired Fund Fees and Expenses" include fees and expenses incurred indirectly by the Fund as a result of investments in shares of one or more mutual funds, hedge funds, private equity funds or other pooled investment vehicles. Expense Example Investment Objective Of course, past performance is not necessarily an indication of how the Fund will perform in the future. If the value of the assets of the Fund goes down, you could lose money. Principal Risks of Investing in the Fund 1.00 Fees and expenses incurred at the contract level are not reflected in the bar chart or table. If these amounts were reflected, returns would be less than those shown. Performance Information The following Risk/Return Bar Chart and Table illustrate the risks of investing in the Fund by showing changes in the Fund's performance from calendar year to calendar year and comparing the Fund's average annual returns to those of the S&P 500 ® Index and a blended index. Annual Fund Operating Expenses (expenses that you pay each year as a percentage of the value of your investment) Average Annual Total Returns (For the periods ended December 31, 2011) Portfolio Turnover <tt>There can be no assurance that the Fund's investment objective will be met or<br />that the net return on an investment in the Fund will exceed what could have<br />been obtained through other investment or savings vehicles. Shares of the Fund<br />are not bank deposits and are not guaranteed or insured by any bank, government<br />entity or the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation. As with any mutual fund,<br />there is no guarantee that the Fund will be able to achieve its investment<br />objective. If the value of the assets of the Fund goes down, you could lose<br />money.<br /> <br />The risks of investing in the Fund include indirect risks associated with the<br />Fund's investments in Underlying Funds. The value of your investment in the Fund<br />may be affected by one or more of the following risks, which are described in<br />more detail in the sections "Additional Information About the Fund's Investment<br />Strategies and Investment Risks" and the "Investment Glossary" in the Prospectus, <br />any of which could cause the Fund's return, the price of the Fund's shares or <br />the Fund's yield to fluctuate. Please note that there are many other circumstances <br />that could adversely affect your investment and prevent the Fund from reaching <br />its objective, which are not described here.<br /> <br />Active Trading Risk: The Underlying Funds may actively trade, which is<br />associated with high portfolio turnover rates and which may result in higher<br />transaction costs to the Underlying Fund. High portfolio turnover rates of the<br />Underlying Funds can adversely affect the Fund's performance. Active trading<br />tends to be more pronounced during periods of increased market volatility.<br /> <br />Affiliated Fund Risk: In managing the Fund that invests in Underlying Funds, the<br />sub-adviser has the authority to select and substitute the Underlying Funds. The <br />sub-adviser may be subject to potential conflicts of interest in allocating the <br />Fund's assets among the various Underlying Funds because the sub-adviser receives <br />fees in connection with its management of certain of the Underlying Funds.<br /> <br />Equity Securities Risk: The Underlying Funds may invest in equity securities,<br />which are subject to the risk that stock prices will fall and may underperform<br />other asset classes. Individual stock prices fluctuate from day-to-day and may<br />decline significantly. The prices of individual stocks may be negatively<br />affected by poor company results or other factors affecting individual prices,<br />as well as industry and/or economic trends and developments affecting industries<br />or the securities market as a whole.<br /><br />Call or Prepayment Risk: During periods of falling interest rates, a bond issuer<br />may "call" a bond to repay it before its maturity date. An Underlying Fund may<br />only be able to invest the bond's proceeds at lower interest rates, resulting in<br />a decline in the Underlying Fund's income. <br /><br />Credit Risk: The issuer of a fixed-income security owned by an Underlying Fund<br />may be unable to make interest or principal payments.<br /> <br />Foreign Investment Risk: The Underlying Funds may invest in foreign securities.<br />Investment in foreign securities involves risks due to several factors, such as<br />illiquidity, the lack of public information, changes in the exchange rates<br />between foreign currencies and the U.S. dollar, unfavorable political and legal<br />developments, or economic and financial instability. Foreign companies are not<br />subject to the U.S. accounting and financial reporting standards and may have<br />riskier settlement procedures. U.S. investments that are denominated in foreign<br />currencies or that are traded in foreign markets, or securities of U.S.<br />companies that have significant foreign operations may be subject to foreign<br />investment risk.<br /> <br />Interest Rate Risk: The Underlying Funds may invest in fixed-income securities.<br />The value of fixed-income securities may decline when interest rates go up or<br />increase when interest rates go down. The interest earned on fixed-income<br />securities may decline when interest rates go down or increase when interest<br />rates go up. Longer-term and lower coupon bonds tend to be more sensitive to<br />changes in interest rates.<br /> <br />Investment Company Risk: The risks of the Fund owning shares of other investment<br />companies such as the Underlying Funds involve substantially the same risks as<br />investing directly in the securities held by the Underlying Funds. An investment<br />company may not achieve its investment objective or execute its investment<br />strategy effectively, which may adversely affect the Fund's performance. In<br />addition, the total return from investments in other investment companies will <br />be reduced by the operating expenses and fees of the investment company.<br /> <br />Large Capitalization Company Risk: The Underlying Funds may invest in large<br />capitalization companies. Investing primarily in large capitalization companies<br />carries the risk that due to current market conditions these companies may be<br />out of favor with investors. Large-cap companies may be unable to respond<br />quickly to new competitive challenges or attain the high growth rate of<br />successful smaller companies.<br /> <br />Junk Bond Risk: The Underlying Funds may invest in high yielding, high risk<br />fixed-income securities (often referred to as "junk bonds"), which typically<br />involve significantly greater credit risk, market risk and interest rate risk<br />compared to higher rated fixed-income securities. Issuers of junk bonds are less<br />secure financially and their securities are more sensitive to downturns in the<br />economy. The market for junk bonds may not be as liquid as that for more highly<br />rated securities.<br /> <br />Market Risk: The share price of the Underlying Funds and, as a result, the share<br />price of the Fund can fall because of weakness in the broad market, a particular<br />industry, or specific holdings or due to adverse political or economic developments <br />here or abroad, changes in investor psychology, or heavy institutional selling. <br />The price of individual securities may fluctuate, sometimes dramatically, from <br />day to day. The prices of stocks and other equity securities tend to be more <br />volatile than those of fixed-income securities.<br /> <br />Model Risk: The Fund's asset allocation model may fail to produce the optimal<br />portfolio allocation.<br /> <br />Real Estate Investments Risk: The Underlying Funds may invest in real estate<br />securities. Securities of companies in the real estate industry are sensitive to<br />several factors, such as changes in real estate values, interest rates, cash<br />flow, occupancy rates, and greater company liabilities.<br /> <br />Small and Medium Capitalization Company Risk: The Underlying Funds may invest in<br />small- and medium-capitalization companies. Securities of small- and mid-cap<br />companies are usually more volatile and entail greater risks than securities of<br />large companies.</tt> Fees and Expenses of the Fund Principal Investment Strategies of the Fund <tt>The following Risk/Return Bar Chart and Table illustrate the risks of investing<br />in the Fund by showing changes in the Fund's performance from calendar year to<br />calendar year and comparing the Fund's average annual returns to those of the<br />S&amp;P 500&#xAE; Index and a blended index. The blended index is comprised of the<br />Russell 3000&#xAE; Index (54%), the MSCI EAFE Index (net) (13%), the Barclays U.S. <br />Aggregate Bond Index (25%) and the FTSE European Public Real Estate Association <br />("EPRA")/National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts ("NAREIT") <br />Developed Index (8%). Fees and expenses incurred at the contract level are not <br />reflected in the bar chart or table. If these amounts were reflected, returns <br />would be less than those shown. Of course, past performance is not necessarily <br />an indication of how the Fund will perform in the future. <br /><br />During the periods shown in the bar chart below, the highest return for a quarter <br />was 16.88% (quarter ending September 30, 2009) and the lowest return for a quarter <br />was -17.12% (quarter ending December 31, 2008). For the year-to-date through <br />September 30, 2012, the Fund's return was 12.48%.</tt> <tt>This table describes the fees and expenses that you may pay if you buy and hold<br />shares of the Fund.
