The following material supplements the Prospectus dated November 1, 2012 to incorporate information about the new Specialist Managers.

The Value Equity Portfolio:

1. The following replaces the “Principal Investment Strategies” section on page 2 of the Prospectus:

Principal Investment Strategies

The Portfolio is designed to implement a value-oriented investment approach. A “value investor” seeks to select securities that trade for less than the intrinsic value of the issuing company, as measured by fundamental investment considerations such as earnings, book value and dividend paying ability. The Portfolio seeks to achieve its objective by investing primarily (i.e., at least 80% of its net assets) in a diversified portfolio of equity securities. In the unlikely event that a change in this investment policy is adopted by the Board of Trustees, shareholders will receive at least 60 days prior written notice before such change is implemented. The Portfolio may invest up to 20% of the total assets of the actively managed portion of the Portfolio in income-producing securities other than common stock, such as preferred stocks or bonds, including those that are convertible into common stock. These income-producing securities may be of any quality or maturity. The Portfolio may also invest in equity securities of mid capitalization issuers. As of the date of this Prospectus, companies with a market capitalization of between $5 billion and $15 billion would likely be included in the “mid cap” range. Up to 20% of the total assets of the total Portfolio may also be invested in securities issued by non-U.S. companies. The Portfolio may invest in securities issued by other investment companies, including Exchange-Traded Funds (“ETFs”) that invest in equity securities. The Portfolio may also invest in other instruments including option or futures contracts, and similar instruments in order to gain market exposure pending investment or to hedge against fluctuations in market price of the securities in which the Portfolio invests. Additionally, a portion of the Portfolio is managed using a “passive” or “index” investment approach designed to approximate as closely as practicable, before expenses, the performance of the Portfolio’s benchmark index and, from time to time, one or more identifiable subsets or other portions of that index.

The Portfolio is authorized to operate on a multi-manager basis. This means that a single Portfolio may be managed by more than one investment subadviser (“Specialist Manager”). The multi-manager structure is generally designed to provide investors access to broadly diversified investment styles. The Trust seeks to engage skilled Specialist Managers to provide a broad exposure to the relevant asset class and returns in excess of the Portfolio’s benchmark over time.

Principal Investment Strategies

The Portfolio is designed to implement a growth-oriented investment approach. “Growth investing” means that securities acquired for the Portfolio can be expected to have above-average potential for growth in revenue and earnings. The Portfolio seeks to achieve its objective by investing primarily (i.e., at least 80% of its net assets) in a diversified portfolio of equity securities. In the unlikely event that a change in this investment policy is adopted by the Board of Trustees, shareholders will receive at least 60 days prior written notice before such change is implemented.

The Portfolio may invest in securities issued by other investment companies, including ETFs, that invest in equity securities.

Accordingly, dividends paid by this Portfolio can generally be expected to be lower than those paid by The Value Equity Portfolio. Consistent with their respective investment styles, the Portfolio’s Specialist Managers may use instruments including option or futures contracts and similar instruments in order to gain market exposure pending investment or to hedge against fluctuations in market price of the securities in which the Portfolio invests.

4. The following is is added to the Section “More Information About Fund Investments and Risks—The Small Capitalization Equity Portfolio” on page 88:

The Ariel Investment Selection Process: Ariel uses independent thought and research to implement a four-part process. They screen more than 10,000 securities on size, valuation and industry parameters to yield roughly 2,000 issues. Of those they follow approximately 75 closely. They then determine whether or not an idea is cheap enough via a deep value strategy focusing on book value (often 1x or below), tangible book value, cash and other similar factors. There are no rigid criteria to their analytical process; they are trying to determine that a margin of safety exists between price and intrinsic value. They surround companies to

 

HCTPROSUPP- ADV-20130627

Page 8 of 37


paint a long-term picture and identify what others are missing. One key tool is their independent verification network of outside experts. Another tool is deciding the best methodology to determine whether a margin of safety exists. Once they have measured the gap between stock price and intrinsic value, they hold an informal discussion with any research members who are experts in the industry. The lead portfolio manager makes the final decision on whether or not to initiate a position. As natural contrarians, they sell a security when they believe that the valuation is no longer attractive due to assets and/or ability to generate profits and/or free cash flow. In keeping with their long-term patient approach, they will not sell a security because of a short-term disappointment. They will, however, sell a security if their investment thesis has changed, namely by a major shift in the competitive landscape, a deterioration in company fundamentals, and/or a loss of faith in management to execute the stated goals and objectives. The decision to sell is ultimately made by the lead portfolio manager.

The Mellon Capital Investment Selection Process: In selecting investments for that portion of the Portfolio allocated to it, Mellon Capital adheres to a “passive,” “indexing” or “rules-based” investment approach by which Mellon Capital attempts to approximate as closely as practicable, before expenses, the performance of one or more different segments of the Russell 2000(R) small capitalization universe (i.e. small capitalization value and small capitalization growth segments). The particular segments of the Russell 2000(R) universe that form the basis for Mellon Capital’s investments are determined by the Adviser in consultation with Mellon Capital. The Russell 2000(R) Indices are unmanaged, market cap-weighted indices, which are reviewed and reconstituted each year. Further information about the Russell 2000(R) Indices appears later in this Prospectus under the heading “Investment Risks and Strategies – About Benchmarks and Index Investing.” The Portfolio’s returns may vary from the returns of the Russell 2000(R) Indices.

In the unlikely event that a change in this investment policy is adopted by the Board of Trustees, shareholders will receive at least 60 days prior written notice before such change is implemented. Up to 20% of the total assets of the total Portfolio may also be invested in securities of “mid cap” issuers. The Portfolio may invest in securities issued by other investment companies, including ETFs, that invest in equity securities of “small cap” issuers. Consistent with this objective the Portfolio will invest in both dividend paying securities and securities that do not pay dividends. Also, consistent with their respective investment styles, the Portfolio’s Specialist Managers may use instruments such as option or futures contracts in order to gain market exposure pending investment or to hedge against fluctuations in market price of the securities in which the Portfolio invests. As of August 31, 2013, the market capitalization range of companies in the Russell 2000® Index was between approximately $500 million and $5 billion. Companies with a market capitalization between $5 billion and $15 billion would likely be included in the “mid cap” range.

The Portfolio is authorized to operate on a multi-manager basis. This means that a single Portfolio may be managed by more than one Specialist Manager. The multi-manager structure is generally designed to provide investors access to broadly diversified investment styles. The Trust seeks to engage skilled Specialist Managers to provide a broad exposure to the relevant asset class and returns in excess of the Portfolio’s benchmark over time.

Cupps, Frontier, IronBridge, Pzena, and Ariel are currently responsible for implementing the active component of the Portfolio’s investment strategy. The remaining portion of the Portfolio is managed using “passive” or “index” investment approaches that are designed to approximate as closely as practicable, before expenses, the performance of the Portfolio’s benchmark index or one or more identifiable subsets or other portions of that index (see “Fund Management,” included later in this Prospectus). Mellon Capital is currently responsible for implementing the passive component of the Portfolio’s investment strategy. Further information about the Specialist Managers, individual portfolio managers responsible for day-to-day investment decisions for the Portfolio, and the manner in which the Portfolio’s assets are allocated among them appears in the “Specialist Manager Guide” included later in this Prospectus.

4. The following is added to the Section “More Information About Fund Investments and Risks—The Institutional Small Capitalization Equity Portfolio” on page 90:

The Ariel Investment Selection Process: Ariel uses independent thought and research to implement a four-part process. They screen more than 10,000 securities on size, valuation and industry parameters to yield roughly 2,000 issues. Of those they follow approximately 75 closely. They then determine whether or not an idea is cheap enough via a deep value strategy focusing on book value (often 1x or below), tangible book value, cash and other similar factors. There are no rigid criteria to their analytical process; they are trying to determine that a margin of safety exists between price and intrinsic value. They surround companies to paint a long-term picture and identify what others are missing. One key tool is their independent verification network of outside experts. Another tool is deciding the best methodology to determine whether a margin of safety exists. Once they have measured the gap between stock price and intrinsic value, they hold an informal discussion with any research members who are experts in the industry. The lead portfolio manager makes the final decision on whether or not to initiate a position. As natural contrarians, they sell a security when they believe that the valuation is no longer attractive due to assets and/or ability to generate profits and/or free cash flow. In keeping with their long-term patient approach, they will not sell a security because of a short-term disappointment. They will, however, sell a security if their investment thesis has changed, namely by a major shift in the competitive landscape, a deterioration in company fundamentals, and/or a loss of faith in management to execute the stated goals and objectives. The decision to sell is ultimately made by the lead portfolio manager.

The Mellon Capital Investment Selection Process: In selecting investments for that portion of the Portfolio allocated to it, Mellon Capital adheres to a “passive,” “indexing” or “rules-based” investment approach by which Mellon Capital attempts to approximate as closely as practicable, before expenses, the performance of one or more different segments of the Russell 2000(R) small capitalization universe (i.e. small capitalization value and small capitalization growth segments). The particular segments of the Russell 2000(R) universe that form the basis for Mellon Capital’s investments are determined by the Adviser in consultation with Mellon Capital. The Russell 2000(R) Indices are unmanaged, market cap-weighted indices, which are reviewed and reconstituted each year. Further information about the Russell 2000(R) Indices appears later in this Prospectus under the heading “Investment Risks and Strategies – About Benchmarks and Index Investing.” The Portfolio’s returns may vary from the returns of the Russell 2000(R) Indices.

1. The following replaces the “Principal Investment Strategies” section on page 26 of the Prospectus:

Principal Investment Strategies

The Portfolio seeks to achieve its objective by investing primarily (i.e. at least 80% of its assets) in a portfolio of equity and debt securities issued by U.S. and non-U.S. real estate-related companies, including companies known as real estate investment trusts (REITs) and other real estate operating companies whose value is derived from ownership, development and management of underlying real estate properties. In the unlikely event that a change in this investment policy is adopted by the Board of Trustees, shareholders will receive at least 60 days prior written notice before such change is implemented. The Portfolio’s permissible investments include equity and equity-related securities of real estate-related companies, including common stock, preferred stock, convertible securities, warrants, options, depositary receipts and other similar equity equivalents. The Portfolio also may invest in equity and equity-related and fixed income securities, including debt securities, mortgage-backed securities and high yield debt. The Portfolio may invest in securities issued by other investment companies, including ETFs, that invest in securities issued by real estate-related companies. The Portfolio may also invest in companies which are located in emerging markets countries, as well as companies of any market capitalization.

Consistent with its investment style, the Portfolio’s Specialist Manager may use instruments such as option or futures contracts in order to gain market exposure pending investment or to hedge against fluctuations in market price of the securities in which the Portfolio invests.

The Portfolio is authorized to operate on a multi-manager basis. This means that a single Portfolio may be managed by more than one Specialist Manager. The multi-manager structure is generally designed to provide investors access to broadly diversified investment styles. The Trust seeks to engage skilled Specialist Managers to provide a broad exposure to the relevant asset class and returns in excess of the Portfolio’s benchmark over time.

The particular segments of these indices that form the basis for Mellon Capital’s investments are determined by the Adviser in consultation with Mellon Capital. The Dow Jones US Select REIT Index is designed to provide a measure of real estate securities that serve as proxies for direct real estate investing, in part by excluding securities whose value is not always closely tied to the value of the underlying real estate. The Index is a market capitalization weighted index of publicly traded REITs and is comprised of companies whose charters are the equity ownership and operation of commercial real estate and which operate under the REIT Act of 1960. The FTSE EPRA/NAREIT Global Real Estate Index Series is designed to represent general trends in eligible listed real estate stocks worldwide. Relevant real estate activities are defined as the ownership, trading and development of income-producing real estate. Further information about the Dow Jones US Select REIT Index and FTSE EPRA/NAREIT appears later in this Prospectus under the heading “Investment Risks and Strategies – About Benchmarks and Index Investing.” The Fund’s returns may vary from the returns of the Dow Jones US Select REIT Index and FTSE EPRA/NAREIT.

The Commodity Returns Strategy Portfolio

1. The following replaces the “Principal Investment Strategies” section on page 31 of the Prospectus:

Principal Investment Strategies

The Portfolio seeks to achieve its objective by investing in a diversified portfolio of commodity-related investments including securities issued by companies in commodity-related industries, commodity-linked structured notes (derivative debt instruments with principal and/or coupon payments linked to the performance of commodity indices) and other similar derivative instruments, investment vehicles that invest in commodities and commodity-related instruments. Securities of companies in commodities-related industries may include common stocks, depositary receipts, preferred securities, rights to subscribe for or purchase any such securities, warrants, convertible securities and other equity and commodity-linked securities issued by such companies. For this purpose, commodities are assets that have tangible properties, such as oil, metal and agricultural products. Commodity-related industries include, but are not limited to: (i) those directly engaged in the production of commodities, such as minerals, metals, agricultural commodities, chemicals, pulp and paper, building materials, oil and gas, other energy or natural resources, and (ii) companies that provide services to commodity producers. The Portfolio considers a company to be in a commodity-related industry if, as determined by the relevant Specialist Manager, at least 50% of the company’s assets, revenues or net income are derived from, or related to, such activities. The Portfolio may invest without limitation in foreign securities, including securities issued by companies in emerging markets. The Portfolio may invest in securities issued by other investment companies, including ETFs, that invest in commodity-related investments. The Portfolio also intends to gain exposure to commodity markets by investing a portion of its assets in two wholly-owned subsidiaries organized under the laws of the Cayman Islands (the “Subsidiaries”). The Subsidiaries may invest without limitation in commodity-linked derivative instruments, such as swaps, futures and options. The Portfolio may invest in commodity swap, variance swap and total return swap agreements and the Portfolio maintains liquid assets sufficient to cover the full notional value of any such swap positions. The Subsidiaries may also invest in debt securities, some of which are intended to serve as margin or collateral for the Subsidiaries’ derivatives positions, and other investment vehicles that invest in commodities and commodity-related instruments. The Subsidiaries are managed by the same Specialist Managers that advise the Portfolio.

In determining securities in which to invest, the Portfolio’s management team will evaluate the countries’ economic and political climates with prospects for sustained macro and micro economic growth.

The Mellon Capital Investment Selection Process: In selecting investments for that portion of the Portfolio allocated to it, Mellon Capital adheres to a “passive,” “indexing” or “rules-based” investment approach by which Mellon Capital attempts to approximate as closely as practicable, before expenses, the performance of one or more different segments of the MSCI EM Index. The particular segments of the MSCI EM Index that form the basis for Mellon Capital’s investments are determined by the Adviser in consultation with Mellon Capital. The MSCI EM Index is an unmanaged free float-adjusted market capitalization index that is designed to measure equity market performance of emerging markets. Further information about the MSCI EM Index appears later in this Prospectus under the heading “Investment Risks and Strategies – About Benchmarks and Index Investing.” The Fund’s returns may vary from the returns of the MSCI EM Index.

The Core Fixed Income Portfolio

1. The following replaces the “Principal Investment Strategies” section on page 49 of the Prospectus:

Principal Investment Strategies

The Portfolio invests primarily (e.g. at least 80% of its net assets) in a diversified portfolio of fixed income securities. The Portfolio, under normal circumstances, will invest at least 80% of its assets in fixed income securities that, at the time of purchase, are rated in one of four highest rating categories assigned by one of the major independent rating agencies or are, in the view of the Specialist Manager, deemed to be of comparable quality. In the unlikely event that a change in this investment policy is adopted by the Board of Trustees, shareholders will receive at least 60 days prior written notice before such change is implemented. Securities in the fourth highest rating category may have speculative characteristics. From time to time, a substantial portion of the Portfolio may be invested in any of the following: (1) investment grade mortgage-backed or asset-backed securities; (2) securities issued or fully guaranteed by the U.S. Government, Federal Agencies, or sponsored agencies; (3) investment grade fixed income securities issued by U.S. corporations; or (4) municipal bonds (i.e., debt securities issued by municipalities and related entities). Under normal conditions, the Portfolio may invest up to 20% of its assets in high yield securities (“junk bonds”) and up to 20% of its assets in cash or money market instruments in order to maintain liquidity, or in the event that the Specialist Manager determines that securities meeting the Portfolio’s investment objective and policies are not otherwise readily available for purchase. The Portfolio may invest in securities issued by other investment companies, including ETFs, that invest in fixed income securities. Consistent with its investment policies, the Portfolio may purchase and sell securities without regard to the effect on portfolio turnover. The Portfolio has historically had significant portfolio turnover (e.g., over 200% annually), and it is anticipated that such portfolio turnover will continue in the future. High portfolio turnover will cause the Portfolio to incur additional transaction costs; higher transaction costs will reduce total return. High portfolio turnover also is likely to generate short-term capital gains, which, once distributed, is taxed to the shareholder as ordinary income. Securities purchased for the Portfolio will have varying maturities, but under normal circumstances the Portfolio will have an effective dollar weighted average portfolio maturity of between five and ten years. The Portfolio may engage in transactions involving “derivative instruments” both in order to hedge against fluctuations in the market value of the securities in which the Portfolio invests and to achieve market exposure pending investment and, in the case of asset-backed and similar securities, for investment purposes.

The Portfolio is authorized to operate on a multi-manager basis. This means that a single Portfolio may be managed by more than one Specialist Manager. The multi-manager structure is generally designed to provide investors access to broadly diversified investment styles. The Trust seeks to engage skilled Specialist Managers to provide a broad exposure to the relevant asset class and returns in excess of the Portfolio’s benchmark over time.

The Fixed Income Opportunity Portfolio

1. The following replaces the “Principal Investment Strategies” section on page 53 of the Prospectus:

Principal Investment Strategies

Under normal circumstances, the portfolio invests primarily (i.e., at least 80% of net assets) in a portfolio of fixed income securities. In the unlikely event that a change in this investment policy is adopted by the Board of Trustees, shareholders will receive at least 60 days prior written notice before such change is implemented. A principal investment strategy of the Portfolio is to invest in high yield securities including “junk bonds”. Under normal circumstances, at least 50% of the Portfolio’s assets will be invested in junk bonds. These securities are fixed income securities that are rated below the fourth highest category assigned by one of the major independent rating agencies or are, in the view of the Specialist Manager, deemed to be of comparable quality. Such securities may include: corporate bonds, collateralized loan obligations (CLOs), collateralized bond obligations (CBOs) and collateralized debt obligations (CDOs) (expected to be limited to less than 15% of the Portfolio), agency and non-agency mortgage-backed securities, collateralized mortgage obligations, commercial mortgage-backed securities and asset-backed securities, REITs, foreign fixed income securities, including emerging market debt, convertible bonds, preferred stocks, treasury inflation bonds, loan participations, swaps and fixed and floating rate loans. The Portfolio may invest in securities issued by other investment companies, including ETFs, that invest in fixed income securities.

The Portfolio may invest in U.S. government securities, including but not limited to treasuries, agencies and commercial paper. The Portfolio may also hold a portion of its assets in cash or money market instruments in order to maintain liquidity or in the event that the Specialist Manager determines that securities meeting the Portfolio’s investment objective and policies are not otherwise readily available for purchase.

Consistent with its investment policies, the Portfolio may purchase and sell high yield securities. Purchases and sales of securities may be effected without regard to the effect on portfolio turnover. Securities purchased for the Portfolio will have varying maturities, but, under normal circumstances, the Portfolio will have an effective dollar weighted average portfolio maturity of between 5 and 10 years. The Portfolio may engage in transactions involving “derivative instruments” both in order to hedge against fluctuations in the market value of the securities in which the Portfolio invests and to achieve market exposure pending investment.

The performance benchmark for this Portfolio is the Barclays Capital U.S. High Yield Ba/B 2% Issuer Capped Index, an unmanaged index of high yield securities that is widely recognized as an indicator of the performance of such securities. The Specialist Managers actively manage the interest rate risk of the Portfolio relative to this benchmark.

The Portfolio is authorized to operate on a multi-manager basis. This means that a single Portfolio may be managed by more than one Specialist Manager. The multi-manager structure is generally designed to provide investors access to broadly diversified investment styles. The Trust seeks to engage skilled Specialist Managers to provide a broad exposure to the relevant asset class and returns in excess of the Portfolio’s benchmark over time.

Principal Investment Strategies

The Portfolio seeks to achieve its objective by investing primarily (i.e. at least 80% of its net assets) in a portfolio of U.S. fixed income securities issued or fully guaranteed by the U.S. Government, Federal Agencies, or sponsored agencies. In the unlikely event that a change in this investment policy is adopted by the Board of Trustees, shareholders will receive at least 60 days prior written notice before such change is implemented.

Overall credit quality of the Portfolio will be maintained at a level substantially equal to that of the Barclays Capital U.S. Government Index. The Portfolio will attempt to be fully invested at all times in U.S. Government fixed income securities, but may hold cash positions at times to adjust the duration of the Portfolio to more closely approximate that of the Barclays Capital U.S. Government Index, to replicate the interest rate sensitivity of the securities in the Barclays Capital U.S. Government Index, or to approximate the exposure to cash in the Barclays Capital U.S. Government Index from coupon payments, principal payments or called securities. The Portfolio intends to maintain an effective dollar weighted average portfolio

The U.S. Mortgage/Asset Backed Fixed Income Securities Portfolio

1. The following replaces the “Principal Investment Strategies” section on page 66 of the Prospectus:

Principal Investment Strategies

The Portfolio seeks to achieve its objective by investing primarily (i.e. at least primarily 80% of net assets) in a portfolio of publicly issued, investment grade mortgage and asset backed securities. In the unlikely event that a change in this investment policy is adopted by the Board of Trustees, shareholders will receive at least 60 days prior written notice before such change is implemented. In general the portfolio will maintain aggregate characteristics similar to the Barclays Capital U.S. Securitized Index.

The Portfolio may invest in securities issued by other investment companies, including ETFs, that invest in mortgage and asset backed securities. The Portfolio may also invest in U.S. Treasury and agency securities. Securities must be rated investment-grade or better by a nationally recognized credit rating agency at the time of purchase or, if not rated by an agency, of comparable credit quality as determined by the Specialist Manager at the time of purchase.

The Short-Term Municipal Bond Portfolio

1. The following replaces the “Principal Investment Strategies” section on page 70 of the Prospectus:

Principal Investment Strategies

The Portfolio’s principal investment strategy is to invest at least 80% of its net assets in municipal bonds (i.e., debt securities issued by municipalities and related entities, the interest on which is exempt from Federal income tax) (“Tax-Exempt Securities”) so that it will qualify to pay “exempt-interest dividends.” The Portfolio intends to maintain a dollar-weighted effective average portfolio maturity of no longer than three years. The Portfolio invests primarily in securities that are rated in one of the top four rating categories of a nationally recognized statistical rating organization or, if unrated, that are determined by the Specialist Manager to be of comparable quality. In the unlikely event that a change in this investment policy is adopted by the Board of Trustees, shareholders will receive at least 60 days prior written notice before such change is implemented. Fixed income securities rated in the fourth highest rating category by a rating agency may have speculative characteristics. The Portfolio does not currently intend to invest in obligations, the interest on which is a preference item for purposes of the Federal alternative minimum tax.

Principal Investment Strategies

The Portfolio seeks to achieve its objective by investing primarily (i.e., at least 80% of net assets) in a diversified portfolio of intermediate-term fixed income securities, the interest on which is exempt from regular Federal income tax. These securities, which include both securities issued by municipalities and so-called “private activity bonds,” are referred to as “Municipal Securities.” Municipal Securities acquired for the Portfolio will generally be rated in one of the three highest rating categories assigned by one of the major independent rating agencies, or are, in the view of the Specialist Manager, deemed to be of comparable quality. The Portfolio is, however, authorized to invest up to 15% of its assets in Municipal Securities that are rated in the fourth highest category. Fixed income securities rated in the fourth highest rating category by a rating agency may have speculative characteristics. Also, the Portfolio is authorized to invest up to 20% of its net assets in taxable instruments. It is a fundamental policy of the Portfolio that, under normal circumstances, at least 80% of its net assets will be invested in Municipal Securities. Municipal Securities purchased for the Portfolio will have varying maturities, but under normal circumstances the Portfolio will have an effective dollar weighted average portfolio maturity of between five and ten years.

1. The following replaces the second paragraph under the “Calculating NAV” section of “Shareholder Information” on page 118 of the Prospectus:

The value of each Portfolio’s investments is generally determined by current market quotations. When reliable market quotations are not readily available for any security, the fair value of that security will be determined by a committee established by the Trust’s Board of Trustees (“Board”) in accordance with procedures adopted by the Board. The fair valuation process is designed to value the subject security at the price a Portfolio would reasonably expect to receive upon its current sale. Fair value pricing may be employed, for example, if the value of a security held by a Portfolio has been materially affected by an event that occurs after the close of the market in which the security is traded, in the event of a trading halt in a security for which market quotations are normally available or with respect to securities that are deemed illiquid. When this fair value pricing method is employed, the prices of securities used in the daily computation of a Portfolio’s NAV per share may differ from quoted or published prices for the same securities. Additionally, security valuations determined in accordance with the fair value pricing method may not fluctuate on a daily basis, as would likely occur in the case of securities for which market quotations are readily available. Consequently, changes in the fair valuation of portfolio securities may be less frequent and of greater magnitude than changes in the price of portfolio securities valued based on market quotations.

2. The following supplements the “Principal Investment Risks” section on page 67 of the Prospectus:

 

   

Multi-Manager Risk – The risk that the Trust may be unable to (a) identify and retain Specialist Managers who achieve superior investment records relative to other similar investments, (b) pair Specialist Managers that have complementary investment styles, or (c) effectively allocate Portfolio assets among Specialist Managers to enhance the return and reduce the volatility that would typically be expected of any one management style. A multi-manager Portfolio may, under certain circumstances, incur trading costs that might not occur in a Portfolio that is served by a single Specialist Manager.

The following material supplements the Prospectus dated November 1, 2012 to incorporate information about the new Specialist Managers.

The Institutional Value Equity Portfolio

1. The following replaces the “Principal Investment Strategies” section on page 2 of the Prospectus:

Principal Investment Strategies

The Portfolio is designed to implement a value-oriented investment approach. A “value investor” seeks to select securities that trade for less than the intrinsic value of the issuing company, as measured by fundamental investment considerations such as earnings, book value and dividend paying ability. The Portfolio seeks to achieve its objective by investing primarily (i.e., at least 80% of its net assets) in a diversified portfolio of equity securities. In the unlikely event that a change in this investment policy is adopted by the Board of Trustees, shareholders will receive at least 60 days prior written notice before such change is implemented. The Portfolio may also invest in equity securities of mid capitalization issuers As of the date of this Prospectus, companies with a market capitalization of between $5 billion and $15 billion would likely be included in the “mid cap” range. Up to 20% of the total assets of the actively managed portion of the Portfolio may be invested in income-producing securities other than common stock, such as preferred stocks or bonds, including those that are convertible into common stock. These income-producing securities may be of any quality or maturity. Up to 20% of the total assets of the total Portfolio may also be invested in securities issued by non-U.S. companies. The Portfolio may invest in securities issued by other investment companies, including ETFs, that invest in equity securities. Consistent with their respective investment styles, the Portfolio’s Specialist Managers may use instruments including option or futures contracts and similar instruments in order to pursue their investment objectives, gain market exposure pending investment or to hedge against fluctuations in market price of the securities in which the Portfolio invests. In accordance with applicable interpretations of the SEC, such derivative instruments may be treated as equity securities for purposes of meeting its investment objective, if these instruments have economic characteristics similar to those of equity securities. Additionally, a portion of the Portfolio is managed using a “passive” or “index” investment approach designed to approximate as closely as practicable, before expenses, the performance of the Portfolio’s benchmark index and, from time to time, one or more identifiable subsets or other portions of that index.

The Portfolio is authorized to operate on a multi-manager basis. This means that a single Portfolio may be managed by more than one Specialist Manager. The multi-manager structure is generally designed to provide investors access to broadly diversified investment styles. The Trust seeks to engage skilled Specialist Managers to provide a broad exposure to the relevant asset class and returns in excess of the Portfolio’s benchmark over time.

Specialist Managers. A portion of the Portfolio is managed in accordance with an “active management” approach, which involves the buying and selling of securities based upon economic, financial and market analysis and investment judgment. ICAP, AllianceBernstein and Pacific Investment Management Company LLC (“PIMCO”) are currently responsible for implementing the active component of the Portfolio’s investment strategy. Additionally, a portion of the Portfolio is managed using “passive” or “index” investment approaches designed to approximate as closely as practicable, before expenses, the performance of the Portfolio’s benchmark index or one or more identifiable subsets or other portions of that index (see “Fund Management,” included later in this Prospectus). Mellon Capital and Cadence are currently responsible for implementing the passive component for the Portfolio’s investment strategy. The investment selection process for each of these Specialist Managers is described below; further information about the Specialist Managers, individual portfolio managers responsible for day-to-day investment decisions for the Portfolio, and the manner in which the Portfolio’s assets are allocated between them appears in the “Specialist Manager Guide” included later in this Prospectus.

4. The following is added to the Section “More Information About Fund Investments and Risks—The Institutional Value Equity Portfolio” on page 55 of the Prospectus:

The Mellon Capital Investment Selection Process: In selecting investments for that portion of the Portfolio allocated to it, Mellon Capital adheres to a “passive,” “indexing” or “rules-based” investment approach by which Mellon Capital attempts to approximate as closely as practicable, before expenses, the performance of one or more different segments of the Russell 1000(R) Value Index. The particular segments of the Russell 1000(R) Value Index that form the basis for Mellon Capital’s investments are determined by the Adviser in consultation with Mellon Capital. The Russell 1000(R) Value Index is an unmanaged, market cap-weighted index, which is reviewed and reconstituted each year. Further information about the Russell 1000(R) Value Index appears later in this Prospectus under the heading “Investment Risks and Strategies – About Benchmarks and Index Investing.” The Portfolio’s returns may vary from the returns of the Russell 1000(R) Value Index.

The Cadence Investment Selection Process: In selecting investments for that portion of the Portfolio allocated to it, Cadence adheres to a “passive,” “indexing” or “rules-based” investment approach by which Cadence attempts to approximate as closely as practicable, before expenses, the performance of one or more different segments of the Russell 1000® Index. The particular segments of the Russell 1000® Value Index that form the basis for Cadence’s investments are determined by the Adviser in consultation with Cadence. The Portfolio’s returns may vary from the returns of the Russell 1000 Index.

The Institutional Growth Equity Portfolio

1. The following replaces the “Principal Investment Strategies” section on page 6 of the Prospectus:

Principal Investment Strategies

The Portfolio is designed to implement a growth-oriented investment approach. “Growth investing” means that securities acquired for the Portfolio can be expected to have above-average potential for growth in revenue and earnings. The Portfolio seeks to achieve its objective by investing primarily (i.e., at least 80% of its net assets) in a diversified portfolio of equity securities. In the unlikely event that a change in this investment policy is adopted by the Board of Trustees, shareholders will receive at least 60 days prior written notice before such change is implemented. The Portfolio may invest up to 20% of the total assets of the actively managed portion of the Portfolio in income-producing securities other than common stock, such as preferred stocks or bonds, including those that are convertible into common stock. These income-producing securities may be of any quality or maturity. The Portfolio may also invest in equity securities of mid capitalization issuers. As of the date of this Prospectus, companies with a market capitalization of between $5 billion and $15 billion would likely be included in the “mid cap” range. Up to 20% of the total assets of the total Portfolio may also be invested in securities issued by non-U.S. companies. The Portfolio may invest in securities issued by other investment companies, including ETFs, that invest in equity securities. Although some of the equity securities in which the Portfolio will invest are expected to be dividend paying issues, income is a secondary consideration in the stock selection process. Accordingly, dividends paid by this Portfolio can generally be expected to be lower than those paid by The Institutional Value Equity Portfolio. Consistent with their respective investment styles, the Portfolio’s Specialist Managers may use instruments including option or futures contracts and similar instruments in order to pursue their investment objectives, gain market exposure pending investment or to hedge against fluctuations in market price of the securities in which the Portfolio invests. In accordance with applicable interpretations of the SEC, such derivative instruments may be treated as equity securities for purposes of meeting its investment objective, if these instruments have economic characteristics similar to those of equity securities.

The Portfolio is authorized to operate on a multi-manager basis. This means that a single Portfolio may be managed by more than one Specialist Manager. The multi-manager structure is generally designed to provide investors access to broadly diversified investment styles. The Trust seeks to engage skilled Specialist Managers to provide a broad exposure to the relevant asset class and returns in excess of the Portfolio’s benchmark over time.

Jennison, PIMCO and SGA are currently responsible for implementing the active component of the Portfolio’s investment strategy. The remaining portion of the Portfolio is managed using “passive” or “index” investment approaches that are designed to approximate as closely as practicable, before expenses, the performance of the Portfolio’s benchmark index or one or more identifiable subsets or other portions of that index (see “Fund Management,” included later in this Prospectus). Mellon Capital is currently responsible for implementing the passive component of the Portfolio’s investment strategy.

4. The following is added to the Section “More Information About Fund Investments and Risks—The Institutional Growth Equity Portfolio” on page 57 of the Prospectus:

The Mellon Capital Investment Selection Process: In selecting investments for that portion of the Portfolio allocated to it, Mellon Capital adheres to a “passive,” “indexing” or “rules-based” investment approach by which Mellon Capital attempts to approximate as closely as practicable, before expenses, the performance of the one or more different segments of the Russell 1000(R) Growth Index.

Further information about the Russell 1000(R) Growth Index appears later in this Prospectus under the heading “Investment Risks and Strategies – About Benchmarks and Index Investing.” The Portfolio’s returns may vary from the returns of the Russell 1000(R) Growth Index.

The Institutional Small Capitalization Equity Portfolio

1. The following replaces the “Principal Investment Strategies” section on page 10 of the Prospectus:

Principal Investment Strategies

The Portfolio invests primarily (i.e., at least 80% of its net assets) in a diversified portfolio of equity securities of “small cap” issuers. The Portfolio is designed to invest primarily in equity securities of U.S. issuers which have market capitalizations that are comparable to the capitalization of companies in the Russell 2000(R) Index at the time of purchase. In the unlikely event that a change in this investment policy is adopted by the Board of Trustees, shareholders will receive at least 60 days prior written notice before such change is implemented. Up to 20% of the total assets of the total Portfolio may also be invested in securities of “mid cap” issuers. The Portfolio may invest in securities issued by other investment companies, including ETFs, that invest in equity securities of “small cap” issuers. Consistent with this objective the Portfolio will invest in both dividend paying securities and securities that do not pay dividends. Also, consistent with their respective investment styles, the Portfolio’s Specialist Managers may use instruments such as option or futures contracts in order to gain market exposure pending investment or to hedge against fluctuations in market price of the securities in which the Portfolio invests. As of August 31, 2013, the market capitalization range of companies in the Russell 2000® Index was between approximately $500 million and $5 billion. Companies with a market capitalization between $5 billion and $15 billion would likely be included in the “mid cap” range.

The Portfolio is authorized to operate on a multi-manager basis. This means that a single Portfolio may be managed by more than one Specialist Manager. The multi-manager structure is generally designed to provide investors access to broadly diversified investment styles. The Trust seeks to engage skilled Specialist Managers to provide a broad exposure to the relevant asset class and returns in excess of the Portfolio’s benchmark over time.

4. The following is added to the Section “More Information About Fund Investments and Risks - The Institutional Small Capitalization Equity Portfolio” on page 58:

The Ariel Investment Selection Process: Ariel uses independent thought and research to implement a four-part process. They screen more than 10,000 securities on size, valuation and industry parameters to yield roughly 2,000 issues. Of those they follow approximately 75 closely. They then determine whether or not an idea is cheap enough via a deep value strategy focusing on book value (often 1x or below), tangible book value, cash and other similar factors. There are no rigid criteria to their analytical process; they are trying to determine that a margin of safety exists between price and intrinsic value. They surround companies to

 

HCTPROSUPP- INSTL-20130627

Page 5 of 27


paint a long-term picture and identify what others are missing. One key tool is their independent verification network of outside experts. Another tool is deciding the best methodology to determine whether a margin of safety exists. Once they have measured the gap between stock price and intrinsic value, they hold an informal discussion with any research members who are experts in the industry. The lead portfolio manager makes the final decision on whether or not to initiate a position. As natural contrarians, they sell a security when they believe that the valuation is no longer attractive due to assets and/or ability to generate profits and/or free cash flow. In keeping with their long-term patient approach, they will not sell a security because of a short-term disappointment. They will, however, sell a security if their investment thesis has changed, namely by a major shift in the competitive landscape, a deterioration in company fundamentals, and/or a loss of faith in management to execute the stated goals and objectives. The decision to sell is ultimately made by the lead portfolio manager.

The Mellon Capital Investment Selection Process: In selecting investments for that portion of the Portfolio allocated to it, Mellon Capital adheres to a “passive,” “indexing” or “rules-based” investment approach by which Mellon Capital attempts to approximate as closely as practicable, before expenses, the performance of one or more different segments of the Russell 2000(R) small capitalization universe (i.e. small capitalization value and small capitalization growth segments). The particular segments of the Russell 2000(R) universe that form the basis for Mellon Capital’s investments are determined by the Adviser in consultation with Mellon Capital. The Russell 2000(R) Indices are unmanaged, market cap-weighted indices, which are reviewed and reconstituted each year. Further information about the Russell 2000(R) Indices appears later in this Prospectus under the heading “Investment Risks and Strategies – About Benchmarks and Index Investing.” The Portfolio’s returns may vary from the returns of the Russell 2000(R) Indices.

The Real Estate Securities Portfolio

1. The following replaces the “Principal Investment Strategies” section on page 14 of the Prospectus:

Principal Investment Strategies

The Portfolio seeks to achieve its objective by investing primarily (i.e. at least 80% of its assets) in a portfolio of equity and debt securities issued by U.S. and non-U.S. real estate-related companies, including companies known as real estate investment trusts (REITs) and other real estate operating companies whose value is derived from ownership, development and management of underlying real estate properties. In the unlikely event that a change in this investment policy is adopted by the Board of Trustees, shareholders will receive at least 60 days prior written notice before such change is implemented. The Portfolio’s permissible investments include equity and equity-related securities of real estate-related companies, including common stock, preferred stock, convertible securities, warrants, options, depositary receipts and other similar equity equivalents. The Portfolio also may invest in equity and equity-related and fixed income securities, including debt securities, mortgage-backed securities and high yield debt. The Portfolio may invest in securities issued by other investment companies, including ETFs, that invest in securities issued by real estate-related companies. The Portfolio may also invest in companies which are located in emerging markets countries, as well as companies of any market capitalization.

Consistent with its investment style, the Portfolio’s Specialist Manager may use instruments such as option or futures contracts in order to gain market exposure pending investment or to hedge against fluctuations in market price of the securities in which the Portfolio invests.

The Portfolio is authorized to operate on a multi-manager basis. This means that a single Portfolio may be managed by more than one Specialist Manager. The multi-manager structure is generally designed to provide investors access to broadly diversified investment styles.

The Mellon Capital Investment Selection Process: In selecting investments for that portion of the Portfolio allocated to it, Mellon Capital adheres to a “passive,” “indexing” or “rules-based” investment approach by which Mellon Capital attempts to approximate as closely as practicable, before expenses, the performance of one or more different segments of the Dow Jones US Select REIT Index and FTSE EPRA/NAREIT. The particular segments of these indices that form the basis for Mellon Capital’s investments are determined by the Adviser in consultation with Mellon Capital. The Dow Jones US Select REIT Index is designed to provide a measure of real estate securities that serve as proxies for direct real estate investing, in part by excluding securities whose value is not always closely tied to the value of the underlying real estate. The Index is a market capitalization weighted index of publicly traded REITs and is comprised of companies whose charters are the equity ownership and operation of commercial real estate and which operate under the REIT Act of 1960. The FTSE EPRA/NAREIT Global Real Estate Index Series is designed to represent general trends in eligible listed real estate stocks worldwide. Relevant real estate activities are defined as the ownership, trading and development of income-producing real estate. Further information about the Dow Jones US Select REIT Index and FTSE EPRA/NAREIT appears later in this Prospectus under the heading “Investment Risks and Strategies – About Benchmarks and Index Investing.” The Fund’s returns may vary from the returns of the Dow Jones US Select REIT Index and FTSE EPRA/NAREIT.

The Commodity Returns Strategy Portfolio

Principal Investment Strategies

The Portfolio seeks to achieve its objective by investing in a diversified portfolio of commodity-related investments including securities issued by companies in commodity-related industries, commodity-linked structured notes (derivative debt instruments with principal and/or coupon payments linked to the performance of commodity indices) and other similar derivative instruments, investment vehicles that invest in commodities and commodity-related instruments. Securities of companies in commodities-related industries may include common stocks, depositary receipts, preferred securities, rights to subscribe for or purchase any such securities, warrants, convertible securities and other equity and commodity-linked securities issued by such companies. For this purpose, commodities are assets that have tangible properties, such as oil, metal and agricultural products. Commodity-

related industries include, but are not limited to: (i) those directly engaged in the production of commodities, such as minerals, metals, agricultural commodities, chemicals, pulp and paper, building materials, oil and gas, other energy or natural resources, and (ii) companies that provide services to commodity producers. The Portfolio considers a company to be in a commodity-related industry if, as determined by the relevant Specialist Manager, at least 50% of the company’s assets, revenues or net income are derived from, or related to, such activities. The Portfolio may invest without limitation in foreign securities, including securities issued by companies in emerging markets. The Portfolio may invest in securities issued by other investment companies, including ETFs, that invest in commodity-related investments. The Portfolio also intends to gain exposure to commodity markets by investing a portion of its assets in two wholly-owned subsidiaries organized under the laws of the Cayman Islands (the “Subsidiaries”). The Subsidiaries may invest without limitation in commodity-linked derivative instruments, such as swaps, futures and options. The Portfolio may invest in commodity swap, variance swap and total return swap agreements and the Portfolio maintains liquid assets sufficient to cover the full notional value of any such swap positions. The Subsidiaries may also invest in debt securities, some of which are intended to serve as margin or collateral for the Subsidiaries’ derivatives positions, and other investment vehicles that invest in commodities and commodity-related instruments. The Subsidiaries are managed by the same Specialist Managers that advise the Portfolio.

The Portfolio may invest in equity and fixed income securities and may invest in companies of any market capitalization.

The Portfolio is authorized to operate on a multi-manager basis. This means that the Portfolio may be managed by more than one Specialist Manager. The multi-manager structure is generally designed to provide investors access to broadly diversified investment styles. The Trust seeks to engage skilled Specialist Managers to provide a broad exposure to the relevant asset class and returns in excess of the Portfolio’s benchmark over time.

In determining securities in which to invest, the Portfolio’s management team will evaluate the countries’ economic and political climates with prospects for sustained macro and micro economic growth. The Portfolio’s management team will take into account traditional securities valuation methods, including (but not limited to) an analysis of price in relation to assets, earnings, cash flows, projected earnings growth, inflation and interest rates.

The Core Fixed Income Portfolio

1. The following replaces the “Principal Investment Strategies” section on page 33 of the Prospectus:

Principal Investment Strategies

The Portfolio invests primarily (e.g. at least 80% of its net assets) in a diversified portfolio of fixed income securities. The Portfolio, under normal circumstances, will invest at least 80% of its assets in fixed income securities that, at the time of purchase, are rated in one of four highest rating categories assigned by one of the major independent rating agencies or are, in the view of the Specialist Manager, deemed to be of comparable quality. In the unlikely event that a change in this investment policy is adopted by the Board of Trustees, shareholders will receive at least 60 days prior written notice before such change is implemented. Securities in the fourth highest rating category may have speculative characteristics. From time to time, a substantial portion of the Portfolio may be invested in any of the following: (1) investment grade mortgage-backed or asset-backed securities; (2) securities issued or fully guaranteed by the U.S. Government, Federal Agencies, or sponsored agencies; (3) investment grade fixed income securities issued by U.S. corporations; or (4) municipal bonds (i.e., debt securities issued by municipalities and related entities). Under normal conditions, the Portfolio may invest up to 20% of its assets in high yield securities (“junk bonds”) and up to 20% of its assets in cash or money market instruments in order to maintain liquidity, or in the event that the Specialist Manager determines that securities meeting the Portfolio’s investment objective and policies are not otherwise readily available for purchase. The Portfolio may invest in securities issued by other investment companies, including ETFs, that invest in fixed income securities. Consistent with its investment policies, the Portfolio may purchase and sell securities without regard to the effect on portfolio turnover. The Portfolio has historically had significant portfolio turnover (e.g., over 200% annually), and it is anticipated that such portfolio turnover will continue in the future. High portfolio turnover will cause the Portfolio to incur additional transaction costs; higher transaction costs will reduce total return. High portfolio turnover also is likely to generate short-term capital gains, which, once distributed, is taxed to the shareholder as ordinary income. Securities purchased for the Portfolio will have varying maturities, but under normal circumstances the Portfolio will have an effective dollar weighted average portfolio maturity of between five and ten years. The Portfolio may engage in transactions involving “derivative instruments” both in order to hedge against fluctuations in the market value of the securities in which the Portfolio invests and to achieve market exposure pending investment and, in the case of asset-backed and similar securities, for investment purposes.

The Portfolio is authorized to operate on a multi-manager basis. This means that a single Portfolio may be managed by more than one Specialist Manager. The multi-manager structure is generally designed to provide investors access to broadly diversified investment styles. The Trust seeks to engage skilled Specialist Managers to provide a broad exposure to the relevant asset class and returns in excess of the Portfolio’s benchmark over time.

The Fixed Income Opportunity Portfolio

1. The following replaces the “Principal Investment Strategies” section on page 37 of the Prospectus:

Principal Investment Strategies

Under normal circumstances, the portfolio invests primarily (i.e., at least 80% of net assets) in a portfolio of fixed income securities. In the unlikely event that a change in this investment policy is adopted by the Board of Trustees, shareholders will receive at least 60 days prior written notice before such change is implemented. A principal investment strategy of the Portfolio is to invest in high yield securities including “junk bonds”. Under normal circumstances, at least 50% of the Portfolio’s assets will be invested in junk bonds. These securities are fixed income securities that are rated below the fourth highest category assigned by one of the major independent rating agencies or are, in the view of the Specialist Manager, deemed to be of comparable quality. Such securities may include: corporate bonds, collateralized loan obligations (CLOs), collateralized bond obligations (CBOs) and collateralized debt obligations (CDOs) (expected to be limited to less than 15% of the Portfolio), agency and non-agency mortgage-backed securities, collateralized mortgage obligations, commercial mortgage-backed securities and asset-backed securities, REITs, foreign fixed income securities, including emerging market debt, convertible bonds, preferred stocks, treasury inflation bonds, loan participations, swaps and fixed and floating rate loans. The Portfolio may invest in securities issued by other investment companies, including ETFs, that invest in fixed income securities.

The Portfolio may invest in U.S. government securities, including but not limited to treasuries, agencies and commercial paper. The Portfolio may also hold a portion of its assets in cash or money market instruments in order to maintain liquidity or in the event that the Specialist Manager determines that securities meeting the Portfolio’s investment objective and policies are not otherwise readily available for purchase.

Consistent with its investment policies, the Portfolio may purchase and sell high yield securities. Purchases and sales of securities may be effected without regard to the effect on portfolio turnover. Securities purchased for the Portfolio will have varying maturities, but, under normal circumstances, the Portfolio will have an effective dollar weighted average portfolio maturity of between 5 and 10 years. The Portfolio may engage in transactions involving “derivative instruments” both in order to hedge against fluctuations in the market value of the securities in which the Portfolio invests and to achieve market exposure pending investment.

The performance benchmark for this Portfolio is the Barclays Capital U.S. High Yield Ba/B 2% Issuer Capped Index, an unmanaged index of high yield securities that is widely recognized as an indicator of the performance of such securities. The Specialist Managers actively manage the interest rate risk of the Portfolio relative to this benchmark.

The Portfolio is authorized to operate on a multi-manager basis. This means that a single Portfolio may be managed by more than one Specialist Manager. The multi-manager structure is generally designed to provide investors access to broadly diversified investment styles. The Trust seeks to engage skilled Specialist Managers to provide a broad exposure to the relevant asset class and returns in excess of the Portfolio’s benchmark over time.

Principal Investment Strategies

The Portfolio seeks to achieve its objective by investing primarily (i.e. at least 80% of its net assets) in a portfolio of U.S. fixed income securities issued or fully guaranteed by the U.S. Government, Federal Agencies, or sponsored agencies. In the unlikely event that a change in this investment policy is adopted by the Board of Trustees, shareholders will receive at least 60 days prior written notice before such change is implemented. In general the portfolio will maintain aggregate characteristics similar to the Barclays Capital U.S. Government Index. Securities held by the Portfolio will be rated investment grade or better by at least two rating agencies at the time of purchase if not rated by an agency, of comparable credit quality as determined by the Specialist Manager at the time of purchase. Overall credit quality of the Portfolio will be maintained at a level substantially equal to that of the Barclays Capital U.S. Government Index. The Portfolio will attempt to be fully invested at all times in U.S. Government fixed income securities, but may hold cash positions at times to adjust the duration of the Portfolio to more closely approximate that of the Barclays Capital U.S. Government Index, to replicate the interest rate sensitivity of the securities in the Barclays Capital U.S. Government Index, or to approximate the exposure to cash in the Barclays Capital U.S. Government Index from coupon payments, principal payments or called securities. The Portfolio intends to maintain an effective dollar weighted average portfolio maturity similar to that of the Barclays Capital U.S. Government Index. The Portfolio may invest in securities issued by other investment companies, including ETFs, that invest in U.S. fixed income securities issued or fully guaranteed by the U.S. Government, Federal Agencies, or sponsored agencies.

The Portfolio will seek to invest in U.S. dollar denominated agency and non-agency mortgage-backed securities backed by loans secured by residential, multifamily and commercial properties including, but not limited to: pass throughs, collateralized mortgage obligations (“CMOs”), real estate mortgage investment conduits (“REMICs”), stripped mortgage-backed securities (“SMBS”), project loans, construction loans, and adjustable rate mortgages. The Portfolio may invest in securities issued by other investment companies, including ETFs, that invest in mortgage and asset backed securities. The Portfolio may also invest in U.S. Treasury and agency securities. Securities must be rated investment-grade or better by a nationally recognized credit rating agency at the time of purchase or, if not rated by an agency, of comparable credit quality as determined by the Specialist Manager at the time of purchase. The Portfolio may engage in transactions involving “derivative instruments” both in order to hedge against fluctuations in the market value of the securities in which the Portfolio invests and to achieve market exposure pending investment and, in the case of asset-backed and similar securities, for investment purposes. Securities purchased for the Portfolio will have varying maturities, but under normal circumstances the Portfolio will have an effective dollar weighted average portfolio maturity of between three and five years.

The Portfolio is authorized to operate on a multi-manager basis. This means that a single Portfolio may be managed by more than one Specialist Manager. The multi-manager structure is generally designed to provide investors access to broadly diversified investment styles. The Trust seeks to engage skilled Specialist Managers to provide a broad exposure to the relevant asset class and returns in excess of the Portfolio’s benchmark over time.

1. The following replaces the second paragraph under the “Calculating NAV” section of “Shareholder Information” on page 82 of the Prospectus:

The value of each Portfolio’s investments is generally determined by current market quotations. When reliable market quotations are not readily available for any security, the fair value of that security will be determined by a committee established by the Trust’s Board of Trustees (“Board”) in accordance with procedures adopted by the Board. The fair valuation process is designed to value the subject security at the price a Portfolio would reasonably expect to receive upon its current sale. Fair value pricing may be employed, for example, if the value of a security held by a Portfolio has been materially affected by an event that occurs after the close of the market in which the security is traded, in the event of a trading halt in a security for which market quotations are normally available or with respect to securities that are deemed illiquid. When this fair value pricing method is employed, the prices of securities used in the daily computation of a Portfolio’s NAV per share may differ from quoted or published prices for the same securities. Additionally, security valuations determined in accordance with the fair value pricing method may not fluctuate on a daily basis, as would likely occur in the case of securities for which market quotations are readily available. Consequently, changes in the fair valuation of portfolio securities may be less frequent and of greater magnitude than changes in the price of portfolio securities valued based on market quotations.

The following material supplements the Prospectus dated November 1, 2012 to incorporate information about the new Specialist Managers.

The Value Equity Portfolio:

1. The following replaces the “Principal Investment Strategies” section on page 2 of the Prospectus:

Principal Investment Strategies

The Portfolio is designed to implement a value-oriented investment approach. A “value investor” seeks to select securities that trade for less than the intrinsic value of the issuing company, as measured by fundamental investment considerations such as earnings, book value and dividend paying ability. The Portfolio seeks to achieve its objective by investing primarily (i.e., at least 80% of its net assets) in a diversified portfolio of equity securities. In the unlikely event that a change in this investment policy is adopted by the Board of Trustees, shareholders will receive at least 60 days prior written notice before such change is implemented. The Portfolio may invest up to 20% of the total assets of the actively managed portion of the Portfolio in income-producing securities other than common stock, such as preferred stocks or bonds, including those that are convertible into common stock. These income-producing securities may be of any quality or maturity. The Portfolio may also invest in equity securities of mid capitalization issuers. As of the date of this Prospectus, companies with a market capitalization of between $5 billion and $15 billion would likely be included in the “mid cap” range. Up to 20% of the total assets of the total Portfolio may also be invested in securities issued by non-U.S. companies. The Portfolio may invest in securities issued by other investment companies, including Exchange-Traded Funds (“ETFs”) that invest in equity securities. The Portfolio may also invest in other instruments including option or futures contracts, and similar instruments in order to gain market exposure pending investment or to hedge against fluctuations in market price of the securities in which the Portfolio invests. Additionally, a portion of the Portfolio is managed using a “passive” or “index” investment approach designed to approximate as closely as practicable, before expenses, the performance of the Portfolio’s benchmark index and, from time to time, one or more identifiable subsets or other portions of that index.

The Portfolio is authorized to operate on a multi-manager basis. This means that a single Portfolio may be managed by more than one investment subadviser (“Specialist Manager”). The multi-manager structure is generally designed to provide investors access to broadly diversified investment styles. The Trust seeks to engage skilled Specialist Managers to provide a broad exposure to the relevant asset class and returns in excess of the Portfolio’s benchmark over time.

In accordance with applicable interpretations of the SEC, such derivative instruments may be treated as equity securities for purposes of meeting its investment objective, if these instruments have economic characteristics similar to those of equity securities. Additionally, a portion of the Portfolio is managed using a “passive” or “index” investment approach designed to approximate as closely as practicable, before expenses, the performance of the Portfolio’s benchmark index and, from time to time, one or more identifiable subsets or other portions of that index.

The Growth Equity Portfolio:

1. The following replaces the “Principal Investment Strategies” section on page 10 of the Prospectus:

Principal Investment Strategies

The Portfolio is designed to implement a growth-oriented investment approach. “Growth investing” means that securities acquired for the Portfolio can be expected to have above-average potential for growth in revenue and earnings. The Portfolio seeks to achieve its objective by investing primarily (i.e., at least 80% of its net assets) in a diversified portfolio of equity securities. In the unlikely event that a change in this investment policy is adopted by the Board of Trustees, shareholders will receive at least 60 days prior written notice before such change is implemented. The Portfolio may invest up to 20% of the total assets of the actively managed portion of the Portfolio in income-producing securities other than common stock, such as preferred stocks or bonds, including those that are convertible into common stock. These income-producing securities may be of any quality or maturity. The Portfolio may also invest in equity securities of mid capitalization issuers. As of the date of this Prospectus, companies with a market capitalization of between $5 billion and $15 billion would likely be included in the “mid cap” range. Up to 20% of the total assets of the total Portfolio may also be invested in securities issued by non-U.S. companies. The Portfolio may invest in securities issued by other investment companies, including ETFs, that invest in equity securities. Although some of the equity securities in which the Portfolio will invest are expected to be dividend paying issues, income is a secondary consideration in the stock selection process. Accordingly, dividends paid by this Portfolio can generally be expected to be lower than those paid by The Value Equity Portfolio. Consistent with their respective investment styles, the Portfolio’s Specialist Managers may use instruments including option or futures contracts and similar instruments in order to gain market exposure pending investment or to hedge against fluctuations in market price of the securities in which the Portfolio invests.

The Institutional Growth Equity Portfolio

1. The following replaces the “Principal Investment Strategies” section on page 14 of the Prospectus:

Principal Investment Strategies

The Portfolio is designed to implement a growth-oriented investment approach. “Growth investing” means that securities acquired for the Portfolio can be expected to have above-average potential for growth in revenue and earnings. The Portfolio seeks to achieve its objective by investing primarily (i.e., at least 80% of its net assets) in a diversified portfolio of equity securities. In the unlikely event that a change in this investment policy is adopted by the Board of Trustees, shareholders will receive at least 60 days prior written notice before such change is implemented. The Portfolio may invest up to 20% of the total assets of the actively managed portion of the Portfolio in income-producing securities other than common stock, such as preferred stocks or bonds, including those that are convertible into common stock. These income-producing securities may be of any quality or maturity. The Portfolio may also invest in equity securities of mid capitalization issuers. As of the date of this Prospectus, companies with a market capitalization of between $5 billion and $15 billion would likely be included in the “mid cap” range. Up to 20% of the total assets of the total Portfolio may also be invested in securities issued by non-U.S. companies. The Portfolio may invest in securities issued by other investment companies, including ETFs, that invest in equity securities. Although some of the equity securities in which the Portfolio will invest are expected to be dividend paying issues, income is a secondary consideration in the stock selection process. Accordingly, dividends paid by this Portfolio can generally be expected to be lower than those paid by The Institutional Value Equity Portfolio. Consistent with their respective investment styles, the Portfolio’s Specialist Managers may use instruments including option or futures contracts and similar instruments in order to pursue their investment objectives, gain market exposure pending investment or to hedge against fluctuations in market price of the securities in which the Portfolio invests. In accordance with applicable interpretations of the SEC, such derivative instruments may be treated as equity securities for purposes of meeting its investment objective, if these instruments have economic characteristics similar to those of equity securities.

The Portfolio is authorized to operate on a multi-manager basis. This means that a single Portfolio may be managed by more than one Specialist Manager. The multi-manager structure is generally designed to provide investors access to broadly diversified investment styles. The Trust seeks to engage skilled Specialist Managers to provide a broad exposure to the relevant asset class and returns in excess of the Portfolio’s benchmark over time.

The Small Capitalization Equity Portfolio:

1. The following replaces the “Principal Investment Strategies” section on page 18 of the Prospectus:

Principal Investment Strategies

The Portfolio invests primarily (i.e., at least 80% of its net assets) in a diversified portfolio of equity securities of “small cap” issuers. The Portfolio is designed to invest primarily in equity securities of U.S. issuers which have market capitalizations that are comparable to the capitalization of companies in the Russell 2000(R) Index at the time of purchase. In the unlikely event that a change in this investment policy is adopted by the Board of Trustees, shareholders will receive at least 60 days prior written notice before such change is implemented. Up to 20% of the total assets of the total Portfolio may also be invested in securities of “mid cap” issuers. The Portfolio may invest in securities issued by other investment companies, including ETFs, that invest in equity securities of “small cap” issuers. Consistent with its objective the Portfolio will invest in both dividend paying securities and securities that do not pay dividends. Also, consistent with their respective investment styles, the Portfolio’s Specialist Managers may use instruments such as option or futures contracts in order to gain market exposure pending investment or to hedge against fluctuations in market price of the securities in which the Portfolio invests. As of August 31, 2013, the market capitalization range of companies in the Russell 2000® Index was between approximately $500 million and $5 billion. Companies with a market capitalization between $5 billion and $15 billion would likely be included in the “mid cap” range.

The Portfolio is authorized to operate on a multi-manager basis. This means that a single Portfolio may be managed by more than one Specialist Manager. The multi-manager structure is generally designed to provide investors access to broadly diversified investment styles. The Trust seeks to engage skilled Specialist Managers to provide a broad exposure to the relevant asset class and returns in excess of the Portfolio’s benchmark over time.

The Ariel Investment Selection Process: Ariel uses independent thought and research to implement a four-part process. They screen more than 10,000 securities on size, valuation and industry parameters to yield roughly 2,000 issues. Of those they follow approximately 75 closely. They then determine whether or not an idea is cheap enough via a deep value strategy focusing on book value (often 1x or below), tangible book value, cash and other similar factors. There are no rigid criteria to their analytical process; they are trying to determine that a margin of safety exists between price and intrinsic value. They surround companies to paint a long-term picture and identify what others are missing. One key tool is their independent verification network of outside experts. Another tool is deciding the best methodology to determine whether a margin of safety exists. Once they have measured the gap between stock price and intrinsic value, they hold an informal discussion with any research members who are experts in the industry. The lead portfolio manager makes the final decision on whether or not to initiate a position. As natural contrarians, they sell a security when they believe that the valuation is no longer attractive due to assets and/or ability to generate profits and/or free cash flow. In keeping with their long-term patient approach, they will not sell a security because of a short-term disappointment. They will, however, sell a security if their investment thesis has changed, namely by a major shift in the competitive landscape, a deterioration in company fundamentals, and/or a loss of faith in management to execute the stated goals and objectives. The decision to sell is ultimately made by the lead portfolio manager.

The Commodity Returns Strategy Portfolio

1. The following replaces the “Principal Investment Strategies” section on page 31 of the Prospectus:

Principal Investment Strategies

The Portfolio seeks to achieve its objective by investing in a diversified portfolio of commodity-related investments including securities issued by companies in commodity-related industries, commodity-linked structured notes (derivative debt instruments with principal and/or coupon payments linked to the performance of commodity indices) and other similar derivative instruments, investment vehicles that invest in commodities and commodity-related instruments. Securities of companies in commodities-related industries may include common stocks, depositary receipts, preferred securities, rights to subscribe for or purchase any such securities, warrants, convertible securities and other equity and commodity-linked securities issued by such companies. For this purpose, commodities are assets that have tangible properties, such as oil, metal and agricultural products. Commodity-related industries include, but are not limited to: (i) those directly engaged in the production of commodities, such as minerals, metals, agricultural commodities, chemicals, pulp and paper, building materials, oil and gas, other energy or natural resources, and (ii) companies that provide services to commodity producers. The Portfolio considers a company to be in a commodity-related industry if, as determined by the relevant Specialist Manager, at least 50% of the company’s assets, revenues or net income are derived from, or related to, such activities. The Portfolio may invest without limitation in foreign securities, including securities issued by companies in emerging markets. The Portfolio may invest in securities issued by other investment companies, including ETFs, that invest in commodity-related investments. The Portfolio also intends to gain exposure to commodity markets by investing a portion of its assets in two wholly-owned subsidiaries organized under the laws of the Cayman Islands (the “Subsidiaries”). The Subsidiaries may invest without limitation in commodity-linked derivative instruments, such as swaps, futures and options. The Portfolio may invest in commodity swap, variance swap and total return swap agreements and the Portfolio maintains liquid assets sufficient to cover the full notional value of any such swap positions. The Subsidiaries may also invest in debt securities, some of which are intended to serve as margin or collateral for the Subsidiaries’ derivatives positions, and other investment vehicles that invest in commodities and commodity-related instruments. The Subsidiaries are managed by the same Specialist Managers that advise the Portfolio.

The Portfolio may invest in equity and fixed income securities and may invest in companies of any market capitalization.

The Portfolio is authorized to operate on a multi-manager basis. This means that the Portfolio may be managed by more than one Specialist Manager. The multi-manager structure is generally designed to provide investors access to broadly diversified investment styles.

Typically 80% of the Portfolio’s net assets will be invested in equity securities, equity swaps, structured equity notes, equity linked notes and depositary receipts concentrated in emerging market countries. In the unlikely event that a change in this investment policy is adopted by the Board of Trustees, shareholders will receive at least 60 days prior written notice before such change is implemented. The Portfolio invests primarily in the Morgan Stanley Capital International® Emerging Market Index (“MSCI EM Index”) countries. As the MSCI EM Index introduces new emerging market countries, the Portfolio may include those countries among the countries in which it may invest. In determining securities in which to invest, the Portfolio’s management team will evaluate the countries’ economic and political climates with prospects for sustained macro and micro economic growth. The Portfolio’s management team will take into account traditional securities valuation methods, including (but not limited to) an analysis of price in relation to assets, earnings, cash flows, projected earnings growth, inflation and interest rates.

The Core Fixed Income Portfolio

1. The following replaces the “Principal Investment Strategies” section on page 48 of the Prospectus:

Principal Investment Strategies

The Portfolio invests primarily (e.g. at least 80% of its net assets) in a diversified portfolio of fixed income securities. The Portfolio, under normal circumstances, will invest at least 80% of its assets in fixed income securities that, at the time of purchase, are rated in one of four highest rating categories assigned by one of the major independent rating agencies or are, in the view of the Specialist Manager, deemed to be of comparable quality. In the unlikely event that a change in this investment policy is adopted by the Board of Trustees, shareholders will receive at least 60 days prior written notice before such change is implemented. Securities in the fourth highest rating category may have speculative characteristics. From time to time, a substantial portion of the Portfolio may be invested in any of the following: (1) investment grade mortgage-backed or asset-backed securities; (2) securities issued or fully guaranteed by the U.S. Government, Federal Agencies, or sponsored agencies; (3) investment grade fixed income securities issued by U.S. corporations; or (4) municipal bonds (i.e., debt securities issued by municipalities and related entities). Under normal conditions, the Portfolio may invest up to 20% of its assets in high yield securities (“junk bonds”) and up to 20% of its assets in cash or money market instruments in order to maintain liquidity, or in the event that the Specialist Manager determines that securities meeting the Portfolio’s investment objective and policies are not otherwise readily available for purchase. The Portfolio may invest in securities issued by other investment companies, including ETFs, that invest in fixed income securities. Consistent with its investment policies, the Portfolio may purchase and sell securities without regard to the effect on portfolio turnover. The Portfolio has historically had significant portfolio turnover (e.g., over 200% annually), and it is anticipated that such portfolio turnover will continue in the future. High portfolio turnover will cause the Portfolio to incur additional transaction costs; higher transaction costs will reduce total return. High portfolio turnover also is likely to generate short-term capital gains, which, once distributed, is taxed to the shareholder as ordinary income. Securities purchased for the Portfolio will have varying maturities, but under normal circumstances the Portfolio will have an effective dollar weighted average portfolio maturity of between five and ten years. The Portfolio may engage in transactions involving “derivative instruments” both in order to hedge against fluctuations in the market value of the securities in which the Portfolio invests and to achieve market exposure pending investment and, in the case of asset-backed and similar securities, for investment purposes.

The Portfolio is authorized to operate on a multi-manager basis. This means that a single Portfolio may be managed by more than one Specialist Manager. The multi-manager structure is generally designed to provide investors access to broadly diversified investment styles. The Trust seeks to engage skilled Specialist Managers to provide a broad exposure to the relevant asset class and returns in excess of the Portfolio’s benchmark over time.

The Fixed Income Opportunity Portfolio

1. The following replaces the “Principal Investment Strategies” section on page 52 of the Prospectus:

Principal Investment Strategies

Under normal circumstances, the portfolio invests primarily (i.e., at least 80% of net assets) in a portfolio of fixed income securities. In the unlikely event that a change in this investment policy is adopted by the Board of Trustees, shareholders will receive at least 60 days prior written notice before such change is implemented. A principal investment strategy of the Portfolio is to invest in high yield securities including “junk bonds”. Under normal circumstances, at least 50% of the Portfolio’s assets will be invested in junk bonds. These securities are fixed income securities that are rated below the fourth highest category assigned by one of the major independent rating agencies or are, in the view of the Specialist Manager, deemed to be of comparable quality. Such securities may include: corporate bonds, collateralized loan obligations (CLOs), collateralized bond obligations (CBOs) and collateralized debt obligations (CDOs) (expected to be limited to less than 15% of the Portfolio), agency and non-agency mortgage-backed securities, collateralized mortgage obligations, commercial mortgage-backed securities and asset-backed

securities, REITs, foreign fixed income securities, including emerging market debt, convertible bonds, preferred stocks, treasury inflation bonds, loan participations, swaps and fixed and floating rate loans. The Portfolio may invest in securities issued by other investment companies, including ETFs, that invest in fixed income securities.

The Portfolio may invest in U.S. government securities, including but not limited to treasuries, agencies and commercial paper. The Portfolio may also hold a portion of its assets in cash or money market instruments in order to maintain liquidity or in the event that the Specialist Manager determines that securities meeting the Portfolio’s investment objective and policies are not otherwise readily available for purchase.

Consistent with its investment policies, the Portfolio may purchase and sell high yield securities. Purchases and sales of securities may be effected without regard to the effect on portfolio turnover. Securities purchased for the Portfolio will have varying maturities, but, under normal circumstances, the Portfolio will have an effective dollar weighted average portfolio maturity of between 5 and 10 years. The Portfolio may engage in transactions involving “derivative instruments” both in order to hedge against fluctuations in the market value of the securities in which the Portfolio invests and to achieve market exposure pending investment.

The performance benchmark for this Portfolio is the Barclays Capital U.S. High Yield Ba/B 2% Issuer Capped Index, an unmanaged index of high yield securities that is widely recognized as an indicator of the performance of such securities. The Specialist Managers actively manage the interest rate risk of the Portfolio relative to this benchmark.

The Portfolio is authorized to operate on a multi-manager basis. This means that a single Portfolio may be managed by more than one Specialist Manager. The multi-manager structure is generally designed to provide investors access to broadly diversified investment styles. The Trust seeks to engage skilled Specialist Managers to provide a broad exposure to the relevant asset class and returns in excess of the Portfolio’s benchmark over time.

In general the portfolio will maintain aggregate characteristics similar to the Barclays Capital U.S. Government Index. Securities held by the Portfolio will be rated investment grade or better by at least two rating agencies at the time of purchase if not rated by an agency, of comparable credit quality as determined by the Specialist Manager at the time of purchase. Overall credit quality of the Portfolio will be maintained at a level substantially equal to that of the Barclays Capital U.S. Government Index. The Portfolio will attempt to be fully invested at all times in U.S. Government fixed income securities, but may hold cash positions at times to adjust the duration of the Portfolio to more closely approximate that of the Barclays Capital U.S. Government Index, to replicate the interest rate sensitivity of the securities in the Barclays Capital U.S. Government Index, or to approximate the exposure to cash in the Barclays Capital U.S. Government Index from coupon payments, principal payments or called securities. The Portfolio intends to maintain an effective dollar weighted average portfolio maturity similar to that of the Barclays Capital U.S. Government Index. The Portfolio may invest in securities issued by other investment companies, including ETFs, that invest in U.S. fixed income securities issued or fully guaranteed by the U.S. Government, Federal Agencies, or sponsored agencies.

The Portfolio invests primarily in securities that are rated in one of the top four rating categories of a nationally recognized statistical rating organization or, if unrated, that are determined by the Specialist Manager to be of comparable quality. In the unlikely event that a change in this investment policy is adopted by the Board of Trustees, shareholders will receive at least 60 days prior written notice before such change is implemented. Fixed income securities rated in the fourth highest rating category by a rating agency may have speculative characteristics.

The Intermediate Term Municipal Bond Portfolio

1. The following replaces the “Principal Investment Strategies” section on page 73 of the Prospectus:

Principal Investment Strategies

The Portfolio seeks to achieve its objective by investing primarily (i.e., at least 80% of net assets) in a diversified portfolio of intermediate-term fixed income securities, the interest on which is exempt from regular Federal income tax. These securities, which include both securities issued by municipalities and so-called “private activity bonds,” are referred to as “Municipal Securities.” Municipal Securities acquired for the Portfolio will generally be rated in one of the three highest rating categories assigned by one of the major independent rating agencies, or are, in the view of the Specialist Manager, deemed to be of comparable quality. The Portfolio is, however, authorized to invest up to 15% of its assets in Municipal Securities that are rated in the fourth highest category. Fixed income securities rated in the fourth highest rating category by a rating agency may have speculative characteristics. Also, the Portfolio is authorized to invest up to 20% of its net assets in taxable instruments. It is a fundamental policy of the Portfolio that, under normal circumstances, at least 80% of its net assets will be invested in Municipal Securities. Municipal Securities purchased for the Portfolio will have varying maturities, but under normal circumstances the Portfolio will have an effective dollar weighted average portfolio maturity of between five and ten years. In the unlikely event that a change in this investment policy is adopted by the Board of Trustees, shareholders will receive at least 60 days prior written notice before such change is implemented. The Portfolio may invest in securities issued by other investment companies, including ETFs, that invest in municipal securities.

The Portfolio is authorized to operate on a multi-manager basis. This means that a single Portfolio may be managed by more than one Specialist Manager. The multi-manager structure is generally designed to provide investors access to broadly diversified investment styles. The Trust seeks to engage skilled Specialist Managers to provide a broad exposure to the relevant asset class and returns in excess of the Portfolio’s benchmark over time.

The Intermediate Term Municipal Bond II Portfolio

1. The following replaces the “Principal Investment Strategies” section on page 77 of the Prospectus:

Principal Investment Strategies

The Portfolio seeks to achieve its objective by investing primarily in a portfolio of municipal bonds (i.e., debt securities issued by municipalities and related entities, the interest on which is exempt from Federal income tax). It is the Portfolio’s policy that, under normal circumstances, at least 80% of its net assets will be invested in such securities (collectively, “Tax-Exempt Securities”). Tax-Exempt Securities may include general obligation bonds and notes, revenue bonds and notes (including industrial revenue bonds and municipal lease obligations), as well as participation interests relating to such securities. The Portfolio invests primarily in securities that are rated in one of the top four rating categories of a nationally recognized statistical rating organization or, if unrated, that are determined by the investment subadviser to be of comparable quality. The Portfolio intends to maintain a dollar-weighted effective average portfolio maturity of five to seven years. In the unlikely event that a change in this investment policy is adopted by the Board of Trustees, shareholders will receive at least 60 days prior written notice before such change is implemented. The Portfolio may invest in securities issued by other investment companies, including ETFs, that invest in municipal securities.

The Portfolio is authorized to operate on a multi-manager basis. This means that a single Portfolio may be managed by more than one Specialist Manager. The multi-manager structure is generally designed to provide investors access to broadly diversified investment styles.

1. The following replaces the second paragraph under the “Calculating NAV” section of “Shareholder Information” on page 117 of the Prospectus:

The value of each Portfolio’s investments is generally determined by current market quotations. When reliable market quotations are not readily available for any security, the fair value of that security will be determined by a committee established by the Trust’s Board of Trustees (“Board”) in accordance with procedures adopted by the Board. The fair valuation process is designed to value the subject security at the price a Portfolio would reasonably expect to receive upon its current sale. Fair value pricing may be employed, for example, if the value of a security held by a Portfolio has been materially affected by an event that occurs after the close of the market in which the security is traded, in the event of a trading halt in a security for which market quotations are normally available or with respect to securities that are deemed illiquid. When this fair value pricing method is employed, the prices of securities used in the daily computation of a Portfolio’s NAV per share may differ from quoted or published prices for the same securities. Additionally, security valuations determined in accordance with the fair value pricing method may not

MANAGEMENT OF THE TRUST

GOVERNANCE. The Trust’s Board of Trustees (“Board”) currently consists of five members. A majority of the members of the Board are individuals who are not “interested persons” of the Trust within the meaning of the Investment Company Act; in the discussion that follows, these Board members are referred to as “Independent Trustees.” The remaining Board member is a senior officer of the Adviser and is thus considered an “interested person” of the Trust for purposes of the Investment Company Act. This Board member is referred to as an “Affiliated Trustee.” Each Trustee serves until the election and qualification of his or her successor, unless the Trustee sooner resigns or is removed from office.

Day-to-day operations of the Trust are the responsibility of the Trust’s officers, each of whom is elected by, and serves at the pleasure of, the Board. The Board is responsible for the overall supervision and management of the business and affairs of the Trust and of each of the Trust’s separate investment portfolios (each, a “Portfolio” and collectively, the “Portfolios”), including the selection and general supervision of those investment advisory organizations (“Specialist Managers”) retained by the Trust to provide portfolio management services to the respective Portfolios. The Board also may retain new Specialist Managers or terminate particular Specialist Managers, if the Board deems it appropriate to do so in order to achieve the overall objectives of the Portfolio involved. More detailed information regarding the Trust’s use of a multi-manager structure appears in this Statement of Additional Information under the heading “Management of the Trust: Multi-Manager Structure.”

The Independent Trustees identified in the table above have served together on the Trust’s Board for 8 years. Taken as a whole, the Board represents a broad range of business and investment experience, as well as professional skills. Mr. Magarick has extensive experience in public accounting, tax and internal controls and was previously a Partner with BDO Seidman, LLP. Mr. Kling, who holds a B. S. from the Wharton School of The University of Pennsylvania, has over 40 years of experience in investment management and as a co-founder of ING Real Estate Securities, LLC, has extensive experience in the distribution of investment products. Mr. Williams brings to the Board the experience of a long term business owner, having founded, owned and operated a company that became, during his tenure, the country’s largest distributor of certain industrial equipment, as well as a market leader in pharmaceutical, commercial construction and other business segments. Mr. Wortham has over three decades of executive management experience, having served as a Trustee of The Wortham Foundation, a private philanthropic foundation with assets of approximately $260 million. He is also a life trustee of the Museum of Fine Arts Houston, serving on the executive, finance, investment and audit committees, and is a director of a large electrical transmission and distribution company. The Affiliated Trustee, Mr. Zion, was a certified public accountant with Coopers & Lybrand LLP prior to joining the Hirtle Callaghan organization, has served in executive capacities with companies affiliated with Hirtle Callaghan & Co., LLC for more than ten years.

COMMITTEES OF THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES. The Board has established several committees to assist the Trustees in fulfilling their oversight responsibilities.

The Nominating Committee is responsible for the nomination of individuals to serve as Independent Trustees. The Nominating Committee, whose members consist of all of the Independent Trustees, did not meet during the fiscal year ended June 30, 2012. The Nominating Committee will consider persons submitted by security holders for nomination to the Board. Recommendations for consideration by the Nominating Committee should be sent to the Secretary of the Trust in writing, together with appropriate biographical information concerning each such proposed nominee, at the principal executive office of the Trust. When evaluating individuals for recommendation for Board membership, the Nominating Committee considers the candidate’s knowledge of the mutual fund industry, educational background and experience and the extent to which such experience and background would enable the Board to maintain a diverse mix of skills and qualifications. Additionally, the entire Board annually performs a self-assessment with respect to its current members, which includes a review of their backgrounds, professional experience, qualifications and skills.

The Audit Committee is responsible for overseeing the audit process and the selection of independent registered public accounting firms for the Trust, as well as providing assistance to the full Board in fulfilling its responsibilities as they relate to fund accounting, tax compliance and the quality and integrity of the Trust’s financial reports. The Audit Committee, whose members consist of all of the Independent Trustees, held 5 meetings during the fiscal year ended June 30, 2012. Mr. Magarick currently serves as the Audit Committee Chairman.

Compliance and Risk Oversight Process. The Trustees overall responsibility for identifying and overseeing the operational, business and investment risks inherent in the operation of the Trust is handled by the Board as a whole and by the Board’s Audit Committee, particularly with respect to valuation and accounting matters. To assist them in carrying out their oversight responsibilities, the Trustees receive, in connection with each of the Board’s regular quarterly meetings, regular reports from the Trust’s Administrator with respect to portfolio compliance, fund accounting matters and matters relating to the computation of the Trust’s net asset value per share. The Trustees also receive reports, at least quarterly, from the Trust’s Chief Compliance Officer or “CCO”. These reports, together with presentations provided to the Board at its regular meetings and regular compliance conference calls (normally monthly) among the Advisor, the CCO and the Chair of the Board’s Audit Committee, are designed to keep the Board informed with respect to the effectiveness of the Trust’s overall compliance program including compliance with stated investment strategies, and to help ensure that the occurrence of any event or circumstance that may have a material adverse affect on the Trust are brought promptly to the attention of the Board and that appropriate action is taken to mitigate any such adverse effect. Additionally, the full Board annually receives a report from the Trust’s CCO and both the full Board and, at the discretion of the Independent Trustees, the Independent Trustees separately meet with the CCO for the purpose of discussing the extent to which the Trust’s overall compliance program is reasonably designed to detect and prevent violations of the federal securities laws and assessing the effectiveness of the overall compliance program. Additionally, both the Board, and the Audit Committee (or, Audit Committee Chair) meet at least annually with the Trust’s independent public accounting firm. As indicated above, the Audit Committee is comprised solely of Independent Trustees and the Audit Committee and its Chair are regular participants in the compliance and risk oversight process. To date, the Board has not found it necessary to specifically identify a “lead trustee” or to elect, as the Board’s Chairman, an Independent Trustee, although the Board reserves the right to do so in the future.

COMPENSATION ARRANGEMENTS. Since January 1, 2011, each of the Independent Trustees has been entitled to receive from the Trust a fee of (i) $50,000 per year; (ii) an additional $10,000 for each regular and special in person Board meeting attended by him (regardless of whether attendance is in person or by telephone), plus reimbursement for reasonable out-of-pocket expenses incurred in connection with his attendance at such meetings; (iii) $2,500 for each Audit Committee Meeting attended in person or telephonically and (iv) $2,500 per each regular and special telephonic meeting attended by him, plus reimbursement for reasonable out-of-pocket expenses incurred in connection with his attendance at such meetings. Committee Chairs receive an additional $10,000 annual fee.

TRUSTEE OWNERSHIP OF SECURITIES OF HC CAPITAL TRUST. The table below sets forth the extent of each Trustee’s beneficial interest in shares of the Portfolios as of December 31, 2011. For purposes of this table, beneficial interest includes any direct or indirect pecuniary interest in securities issued by the Trust and includes shares of any of the Trust’s Portfolios held by members of a Trustee’s immediate family. As of September 30, 2012, all of the officers and trustees of the Trust own, in the aggregate, less than one percent of the outstanding shares of the respective Portfolios of the Trust; officers and Trustees of the Trust may, however, be investment advisory clients of the Adviser and shareholders of the Trust.

Mr. Zion disclaims beneficial ownership of the Trust.
** Mr. Wortham serves as a trustee for the Wortham Foundation which held shares as of December 31, 2011 of over $100,000 in each of The Emerging Markets Portfolio, The Fixed Income Opportunity Portfolio, The Institutional Value Equity Portfolio, The Institutional Growth Equity Portfolio, The Institutional Small Capitalization Equity Portfolio and The Institutional International Equity Portfolio. Mr. Wortham has no beneficial interest in the Foundation.

MULTI-MANAGER STRUCTURE. As noted in the Prospectus, each of the Trust’s Portfolios is authorized to operate on a “multi-manager” basis. This means that a single Portfolio may be managed by more than one Specialist Manager. The multi-manager structure is generally designed to combine two or more investment styles. The goal of the multi-manager structure is to achieve a better rate of return with lower volatility than would typically be expected of any one management style. Its success depends upon the ability of the Adviser, under the oversight of the Board, to: (a) identify and retain Specialist Managers who have achieved and will continue to achieve superior investment records relative to selected benchmarks; (b) pair Specialist Managers that have complementary investment styles (e.g., top-down vs. bottom-up investment selections processes); (c) monitor Specialist Managers’ performance and adherence to stated styles; and (d) effectively allocate Portfolio assets among Specialist Managers. At present, the Value Equity, Growth Equity, Small Capitalization Equity, International Equity, Emerging Markets, Institutional Value Equity, Institutional Growth Equity, Institutional Small Capitalization Equity, Institutional International Equity, Fixed Income Opportunity, Core Fixed Income, Real Estate Securities, and Commodity Returns Strategy Portfolios each employ the multi-manager structure.

Engagement and Termination of Specialist Managers. The Board is responsible for making decisions with respect to the engagement and/or termination of Specialist Managers based on a continuing quantitative and qualitative evaluation of their skills and proven abilities in managing assets pursuant to specific investment styles. While superior performance is regarded as the ultimate goal, short-term performance by itself is not a significant factor in selecting or terminating Specialist Managers. From time to time, the Adviser may recommend, and the Board may consider, terminating the services of a Specialist Manager. The criteria for termination may include, but are not limited to, the following: (a) departure of key personnel from the Specialist Manager’s firm; (b) acquisition of the Specialist Manger by a third party; (c) change in or departure from investment style, or (d) prolonged poor performance relative to the relevant benchmark index.

The Board’s authority to retain Specialist Managers is subject to the provisions of Section 15(a) of the Investment Company Act. Section 15(a) prohibits any person from serving as an investment adviser to a registered investment company unless the written contract has been approved by the shareholders of that company. Rule 15a-4 under the Investment Company Act, however, provides for an exception from the provisions of Section 15(a). The rule permits an adviser to provide advisory services to an investment company before shareholder approval is obtained pursuant to the terms of an interim agreement in the event that a prior advisory contract is terminated by action of such company’s board; in such case, a new contract must be approved by such shareholders within 150 days of the effective date of the interim agreement, or such interim agreement will terminate. The Trust has relied upon the provisions of Rule 15a-4 from time to time, as more fully discussed in this Statement of Additional Information under the heading “Management of the Trust: Investment Advisory Arrangements.” The Board has authorized the Trust’s officers to request an order from the SEC that would exempt the Trust from the provisions of Section 15(a) and certain related provisions of the Investment Company Act. If issued, such an order would permit the Trust to enter into portfolio management agreements with Specialist Managers upon the approval of the Board but without submitting such contracts for the approval of the shareholders of the relevant Portfolio. The shareholders of each Portfolio have approved this structure. Unless otherwise permitted by law, the Board will not act in reliance upon such order with respect to any Portfolio unless the approval of the shareholders of that Portfolio is first obtained. The SEC has proposed a rule that, if adopted, would provide relief from Section 15(a) similar to that currently available only by SEC order. The Board may consider relying upon this rule, if adopted, in connection with the Trust’s multi-manager structure. There can be no assurance that the requested order will be issued by the SEC.

Allocation of Assets Among Specialist Managers. The Adviser is responsible for determining the level of assets that will be allocated among the Specialist Managers in those Portfolios that are served by two or more Specialist Managers. The Adviser and the Trust’s officers monitor the performance of both the overall Portfolio and of each Specialist Manager and, from time to time, may make changes in the allocation of assets to the Specialist Managers that serve a particular Portfolio. For example, a reallocation may be

made in the event that a Specialist Manager experiences variations in performance as a result of factors or conditions that affect the particular universe of securities emphasized by that investment manager, as a result of personnel changes within the manager’s organization or in connection with the engagement of an additional Specialist Manager for a particular Portfolio.

INVESTMENT ADVISORY ARRANGEMENTS. The services provided to the Trust by the Adviser and by the various Specialist Managers are governed under the terms of written agreements, in accordance with the requirements of the Investment Company Act. Each of these agreements is described below.

The HC Capital Agreement. The services provided to the Trust by the Adviser, described above and in the Prospectus, are governed under the terms of two written agreements with the Trust (“HC Capital Agreements”).

Each HC Capital Agreement provides for an initial term of two years. Thereafter, each HC Capital Agreement remains in effect from year to year so long as such continuation is approved, at a meeting called for the purpose of voting on such continuance, at least annually (i) by the vote of a majority of the Board or the vote of the holders of a majority of the outstanding securities of the Trust within the meaning of Section 2(a)(42) of the Investment Company Act; and (ii) by a majority of the Independent Trustees, by vote cast in person. Each of the HC Capital Agreements may be terminated at any time, without penalty, either by the Trust or by the Adviser, upon sixty days written notice and will automatically terminate in the event of its assignment as defined in the Investment Company Act. The HC Capital Agreements permit the Trust to use the logos and/or trademarks of the Adviser. In the event, however, that the HC Capital Agreements are terminated, the Adviser has the right to require the Trust to discontinue any references to such logos and/or trademarks and to change the name of the Trust as soon as is reasonably practicable. The HC Capital Agreements further provide that the Adviser will not be liable to the Trust for any error, mistake of judgment or of law, or loss suffered by the Trust in connection with the matters to which the HC Capital Agreements relate (including any action of any officer of the Adviser or employee in connection with the service of any such officer or employee as an officer of the Trust), whether or not any such action was taken in reliance upon information provided to the Trust by the Adviser, except losses that may be sustained as a result of willful misfeasance, reckless disregard of its duties, bad faith or gross negligence on the part of the Adviser.

The dates of the Board and shareholder approvals of the HC Capital Agreements with respect to each Portfolio are set forth as follows:

Portfolio Management Contracts with Specialist Managers. The provision of portfolio management services by the various Specialist Managers is governed by individual investment advisory contracts (each, a “Portfolio Management Contract”) between the relevant Specialist Manager and the Trust. Each of the Portfolio Management Contracts includes a number of similar provisions. Each Portfolio Management Contract provides that the named Specialist Manager will, subject to the overall supervision of the Board, provide a continuous investment program for the assets of the Portfolio to which such contract relates, or that portion of such assets as may be, from time, to time allocated to such Specialist Manager. Under their respective contracts, each Specialist Manager is responsible for the provision of investment research and management of all investments and other instruments and the selection of brokers and dealers through which securities transactions are executed. Each of the contracts provides that the named Specialist Manager will not be liable to the Trust for any error of judgment or mistake of law on the part of the Specialist Manager, or for any loss sustained by the Trust in connection with the purchase or sale of any instrument on behalf of the named Portfolio, except losses that may be sustained as a result of willful misfeasance, reckless disregard of its duties, bad faith or gross negligence on the part of the named Specialist Manager. Each of the Portfolio Management Contracts provides that it will remain in effect for an initial period of two years and then from year to year so long as such continuation is approved, at a meeting called to vote on such continuance, at least annually: (i) by the vote of a majority of the Board or the vote of the holders of a majority of the outstanding securities of the Trust within the meaning of Section 2(a)(42) of the Investment Company Act; and (ii) by a majority of the Independent Trustees, by vote cast in person, and further, that the contract may be terminated at any time, without penalty, either by the Trust or by the named Specialist Manager, in each case upon sixty days’ written notice. Each of the Portfolio Management Contracts provides that it will automatically terminate in the event of its assignment, as that term is defined in the Investment Company Act.
