Before investing in an Amerivest portfolio, be sure to carefully consider the underlying funds’ objectives, risks, charges, and expenses. For a prospectus containing this and other important information about each fund, contact an Amerivest Specialist at 888-310-7921. Please read the prospectus carefully before investing.

Steady income/returns will vary and all investments involve risk, including loss of income payments and loss of principal. Past performance does not guarantee future results. There is no assurance that the investment process will consistently lead to successful investing. Asset allocation and diversification do not eliminate the risk of experiencing investment losses.

Mutual funds are subject to market, exchange rate, political, credit, interest rate and prepayment risks, which vary depending on the type of mutual fund.

ETFs can entail risks similar to direct stock ownership, including market, sector, or industry risks. Some ETFs may involve international risk, currency risk, commodity risk, and interest rate risk. Trading prices may not reflect the net asset value of the underlying securities.

Amerivest Supplemental Income portfolios offer investment strategies designed to provide both income and total returns while limiting your exposure to volatility with a capital preservation strategy. Both the Conservative and Moderate portfolios are not cash, cash alternatives, or money market funds and should not be viewed as such. Both portfolios hold equity and bond mutual funds that have risks inherent to investing in these securities, including market and credit risk, and possible loss of value.

WealthRuler does not make specific asset class or security recommendations. Users enter criteria including desired retirement age, income and planned expense information, plan end date, and current value and allocation percentages of stocks, bonds and cash. The tool classifies a user into one of five portfolio strategy/risk tolerance models. These models, combined with time horizon, determine the return and risk assumptions used in the calculations. The tool runs multiple simulations to determine the likelihood of plan success, during average and poor market conditions. Results may vary with each use and over time. For complete details on criteria, methodology, limitations and key assumptions, please see Methodologies & Assumptions.

IMPORTANT: The projections or other information generated by WealthRuler regarding the likelihood of various investment outcomes are hypothetical in nature, do not reflect actual investment results and are not guarantees of future results.
