Important Risk Considerations

The series may not achieve its objective and/or you could lose money on your investment in the series.

Stock markets and investments in individual stocks are volatile and can decline significantly in response to issuer, market, economic, industry, political, regulatory, geopolitical, and other conditions.

Investments in foreign markets can involve greater risk and volatility than U.S. investments because of adverse market, economic, industry, political, regulatory, geopolitical, or other conditions.

Investments in small-cap companies can be more volatile than investments in larger companies.

Please see the prospectus for further information on these and other risk considerations.

Before purchasing any variable product, consider the objectives, risks, charges, and expenses associated with the underlying investment option(s) and those of the product itself. For a prospectus, or summary prospectus if available, containing this and other information, contact your investment or insurance professional. Read the prospectus carefully before investing.
