Hypothetical Growth of $10,000

 3, 4 More Information
Shows growth of hypothetical $10,000 investment in Morgan Stanley Global Strategist fund over the selected time period

The chart illustrates the performance of a hypothetical $10,000 investment made in the fund ten years ago or on commencement of operations (whichever is later). Figures include reinvestment of capital gains and dividends, and reflect the effects of the annual annuity charge and the underlying fund's expenses. Figures do not reflect the effects of any applicable redemption fees, maintenance charges, or surrender fees, which would lower these figures. This chart is not intended to imply any future performance of the fund.

The performance data featured represents past performance, which is no guarantee of future results. Investment returns and the principal value of a variable annuity will fluctuate; therefore, you may have a gain or loss when money is withdrawn or received. Fund performance fluctuates and currently may be significantly higher or lower than stated.

Fund Overview


The investment seeks total return.


The fund seeks to achieve total return by investing in a blend of equity and fixed income securities of U.S. and non-U.S. issuers. In seeking to achieve this investment objective, it will implement a global tactical approach to achieving total return, and to control risk and volatility. The fund may invest in real estate investment trusts ("REITs") and mortgage-related or mortgage-backed securities. It may also invest in restricted and illiquid securities. The fund may invest a portion of its assets in below investment grade fixed income securities (commonly known as "junk bonds") and repurchase agreements.


Stock markets are volatile and can decline significantly in response to adverse issuer, political, regulatory, market, economic or other developments. These risks may be magnified in foreign markets. In general the bond market is volatile, and fixed income securities carry interest rate risk. (As interest rates rise, bond prices usually fall, and vice versa. This effect is usually more pronounced for longer-term securities.) Fixed income securities also carry inflation risk and credit and default risks for both issuers and counterparties. Additional risk information for this product may be found in the prospectus or other product materials, if available.
