1The Account's benchmark is a composite index composed of the Russell 3000® Index, Barclays U.S. Aggregate Bond Index and the MSCI EAFE+Canada. The Russell 3000 Index is an unmanaged index of stocks of the 3,000 largest publicly traded U.S. companies, based on market capitalization, and represents about 98% of the total market capitalization of the publicly traded U.S. equity market. The Barclays U.S. Aggregate Bond Index tracks the performance of the U.S. investment-grade fixed-rate bond market, including government and credit securities, agency mortgage pass-through securities, asset-backed securities, and commercial mortgage-backed securities. These indices are weighted, meaning that the return of a larger security has a greater effect on the index's return than that of a smaller one. The MSCIEAFE® + Canada Index tracks the performance of the leading stocks in 21 MSCI developed countries outside of North America--in Europe, Australasia and the Far East, as well as in Canada. The MSCI EAFE® + Canada Index constructs indices country by country, and then assembles the country indices into regional indices. The MSCI EAFE® + Canada Index is primarily a large-capitalization index, with approximately 65% of its stocks falling in this category. Morgan Stanley determines the composition of the index based on a combination of factors including regional/country exposure, price, trading volume and significant owners, and can change its composition at any time. You cannot invest directly in these indices.
Morningstar is an independent service that rates mutual funds and variable annuities.
For each fund/account with at least a three-year history, Morningstar calculates a Morningstar Rating™ based on a Morningstar Risk-Adjusted Return measure that accounts for variation in a fund's/account's monthly performance (including the effects of sales charges, loads, and redemption fees), placing more emphasis on downward variations and rewarding consistent performance. Where applicable, Morningstar's performance rankings are based on linked performance that considers the differences in expense ratios, while actual performance data shown does not reflect such differences.
The top 10 percent of funds/accounts in a category receive five stars, the next 22.5 percent receive four stars, and the next 35 percent receive three stars, the next 22.5 percent receive two stars and the bottom 10 percent receive one star. (Each share class is counted as a fraction of one fund/account within this scale and rated separately, which may cause slight variations in the distribution percentages.) Morningstar proprietary ratings on U.S.-domiciled funds/accounts reflect historical risk-adjusted performance, are subject to change every month. They are derived from a weighted average of the performance figures associated with its three-, five- and ten-year (if applicable) Morningstar Rating metrics. Please note, Morningstar now rates group variable annuities within the open-end mutual fund universe.
