  Investment Objective & Strategy  
The investment seeks current income and preservation of capital.
The fund normally invests at least 80% of its net assets in securities of exchange-traded funds. The advisor typically expects to allocate its investments in Underlying ETFs such that 80% of such allocation is invested in Underlying ETFs that invest primarily in fixed-income securities and money market instruments and approximately 20% of such allocation is invested in Underlying ETFs that invest primarily in equity securities of large, medium and small sized companies, and may include other investments such as commodities and commodity futures. The fund is non-diversified.
  Morningstar Category: Conservative Allocation
Funds in allocation categories seek to provide both income and capital appreciation by primarily investing in multiple asset classes, including stocks, bonds, and cash. These conservative strategies prioritize preservation of capital over appreciation. They typically expect volatility similar to a strategic equity exposure between 15% and 30%. 
  Investment Risks
Non-Diversified Funds: Funds that invest more of their assets in a single issuer involve additional risks, including share price fluctuations, because of the increased concentration of investments.
Fund of Funds: An investment option with mutual funds in its portfolio may be subject to the expenses of those mutual funds in addition to those of the investment option itself.
