Strategy And Objective

The Emerging Markets Portfolio pursues its investment objective by investing substantially all of its assets in the Emerging Markets Series. The Emerging Markets Series purchases a broad market coverage of larger companies associated with emerging markets, which may include frontier markets (emerging market countries in an earlier stage of development), authorized for investment by the Advisor s Investment Committee ( Approved Markets ). The Advisor s definition of large varies across countries and is based primarily on market capitalization. A company s market capitalization is the number of its shares outstanding times its price per share. In each country authorized for investment, the Advisor first ranks eligible companies listed on selected exchanges based on the companies market capitalizations. The Advisor then defines the minimum market capitalization for a large company in that country. For example,based on market capitalization data as of December 31, 2019, Mexico had a size threshold of $4,167 million or above, and Czech Republic had a size threshold of $3,202 million or above.These thresholds will change due to market conditions. In addition, the Advisor may consider a company s size, value, and/or profitability relative to other eligible companies when makinginvestment decisions for the Emerging Markets Series. Securities are considered value stocks primarily because a company s shares have a low price in relation to their book value. In assessing value, the Advisor may consider additional factors such as price to cash flow or price to earnings ratios. In assessing profitability, the Advisor may consider different ratios, such as that of earnings or profits from operations relative to book value or assets. The criteria the Advisor uses for assessing value or profitability are subject to change from time to time. The Advisor may also adjust the representation in the Emerging Markets Series of an eligible company, or exclude a company, after considering such factors as free float, momentum, trading strategies, liquidity, size, value, profitability, and other factors that the Advisor determines to be appropriate. The Advisor may also adjust the representation in the Series of an eligible company, or exclude a company, that the Advisor believes to be negatively impacted by environmental, social or governance factors (including accounting practices and shareholder rights)to a greater degree relative to other issuers.As a non-fundamental policy, under normal circumstances, the Emerging Markets Series will invest at least 80% of its net assets in emerging markets investments that are defined in the Prospectus as Approved Market securities.The Emerging Markets Series may gain exposure to companies associated with Approved Markets by purchasing equity securities in the form of depositary receipts, which may be listed or traded outside the issuer s domicile country. The Emerging Markets Series and the Emerging Markets Portfolio each may purchase or sell futures contracts and options on futures contracts for Approved Market or other equity market securities and induces, including those of the United States, to adjust market exposure based on actual or expected cash inflows to or outflows from the Series or Portfolio. The Series and Portfolio do not intend to sell futures contracts to establish short positions in individual securities or to use derivatives for purposes of speculation or leveraging investment returns.The Emerging Markets Series may lend its portfolio securities to generate additional income.
