The Enhanced US Large Company Portfolio is a no-load mutual fund designed to achieve a total return which exceeds the total return performance of the S&P 500® Index. Total return is comprised of income and capital appreciation. Generally, the portfolio may invest in (1) stocks represented in the S&P 500® Index; (2) stock index futures, options on stock indices and stock index futures, and swap agreements on stock indices and shares of investment companies that invest in stock indices; (3) options on stock indices, stock index futures, options on stock index futures and swap agreements based on indices other than, but similar to, the S&P 500® Index (such instruments whether or not based on the S&P 500® Index are hereinafter collectively referred to as "Index Derivatives"). The portfolio may invest all of its assets in Index Derivatives. Certain of these Index Derivatives are speculative and may subject the portfolio to additional risks. Assets of the portfolio not invested in S&P 500® Index or Index Derivatives may be invested in short-term fixed income obligations. The portfolio's investment in fixed income obligations will be considered investment grade at the time of purchase. The fixed income obligations purchased by the portfolio will typically mature within two years from the date of settlement and the average dollar-weighted maturity of the fixed income obligations will be two years or less. The portfolio may use foreign currency contracts to hedge foreign currency risks or to transfer balances from one currency to another. The portfolio uses index swap agreements and/or stock index futures to hedge against changes in securities prices.

Market Risk
Even a long-term investment approach cannot guarantee a profit. Economic, political, and issuer-specific events will cause the value of securities, and the funds that own them, to rise or fall. Because the value of your investment in a fund will fluctuate, there is a risk that you will lose money.

Foreign Securities and Currencies Risk
Foreign securities prices may decline or fluctuate because of: (a) economic or political actions of foreign governments, and/or (b) less regulated or liquid securities markets. Investors holding these securities are also exposed to foreign currency risk (the possibility that foreign currency will fluctuate in value against the US dollar).
