Please consider the charges, risks, expenses and investment objectives carefully before purchasing a variable annuity, variable life insurance product, a mutual fund or a model portfolio strategy. For an EQ Advisors Trust, EQ Premier VIP Trust or 1290 Funds® prospectus containing this and other information, please contact a financial professional or visit equitable-funds.com or 1290funds.com. Read it carefully before you invest or send money.

The investment strategies discussed here include mutual funds, variable annuity, variable life insurance products and model portfolios, which entail certain risks. This website does not make an offer or solicitation to buy or sell any securities or services. Equitable Investment Management does not provide legal or tax advice and we encourage you to consult your own lawyer, accountant or other advisor before making an investment.

The investment strategies are subject to the volatility of the financial markets, including that of the underlying investment options’ asset class (with respect to certain strategies that employ an asset allocation model). Diversification may not protect against market risk, loss of principal or volatility of returns. An investment may be risky and may not be suitable for an investors’ goals, objectives and risk tolerance. Investment returns and principal value will fluctuate so that an investor’s shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. Mutual funds are subject to the risk that the securities markets will move down, sometimes rapidly and unpredictably, based on overall economic conditions and other factors, which may negatively affect the fund’s performance. Equity securities held in a mutual fund involve the risk that the value of the securities may fluctuate, sometimes widely fluctuate, in response to changes in a company’s financial condition as well as general market, economic and political conditions and other factors. Investing in foreign securities involves specific additional risks, including but not limited to currency risk, political risk, and risk associated with varying accounting standards; investing in emerging markets may accentuate these risks. A mutual fund’s fixed-income investments are subject to fluctuations in price due to issuer and credit quality, rising interest rates and inflation.
