The Ivy VIP Pathfinder Managed Volatility Portfolios' investment manager, Ivy Investment Management Company, manages the investments in the underlying funds. An investment sub-advisor, Securian Asset Management, Inc., manages the volatility management strategy.
The performance of each Ivy VIP Pathfinder Portfolio is dependent on the performance of its underlying funds, and each Portfolio will assume the risks associated with its underlying funds. Because an investor is investing in funds indirectly through the Portfolio, the investor will pay a proportionate share of the applicable expenses of the underlying funds, as well as the expenses of the particular Portfolio. Please consult the prospectus for additional information about fees and expenses.
The Morningstar ETF Allocation Series Portfolios are not Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs), instead they consist of five risk-based asset allocation portfolios that invest in underlying ETFs, which are typically open-end investment companies or unit investment trusts. ETFs entail the same risks as direct stock ownership and portfolios structured as "fund of funds" will entail the same risks associated with the underlying funds and may have higher expenses than underlying funds purchased directly in the Separate Account.
The Ivy Variable Insurance Portfolios, Inc. are managed by Ivy Investment Management Company and distributed by Ivy Distributors, Inc.

Here is a list of the risks associated with the variable insurance product's underlying investment choices. For specific risks related to each investment, see the prospectus.
The asset classes used here are provided by Securian Financial Services, Inc. (Securian Financial Services). Securian Financial Services reviews and updates the analysis on an annual basis. Securian Financial Services uses holdings based analysis as the primary determinant of investment style and asset class, but may supplement this analysis with returns based style analysis or qualitative information. Holdings based analysis is a technique that analyzes the underlying holdings of a fund to identify the overall style of the fund at a point in time or over a particular time period. Because the funds are classified according to their actual underlying holdings, the classification may not correspond to the stated investment style as described by the fund’s prospectus or other documents or by other ranking firms. A fund’s asset class category is subject to change at any time. You should read the fund’s prospectus carefully to understand the risks and objectives of the fund before you invest in it.
Asset Allocation: Neither diversification nor asset allocation guarantee against loss, they are methods used to manage risk. Because these funds deploy an asset allocation strategy, investment risks may vary. One should consult the prospectus for details.
Emerging Markets: Investments in emerging markets involve heightened risks due to their smaller size, decreased liquidity and exposure to political turmoil or rapid changes in economic conditions not normally experienced by more developed countries.
High Yield: High yield, lower-rated (junk) bonds generally have greater price swings and higher default risks. Debt obligations are affected by changes in interest rates and the creditworthiness of their issuers.
International Bond: Investment risks associated with international investing, in addition to other risks, may include currency fluctuations, political, social and economic instability and differences in accounting standards when investing in foreign markets. Debt obligations are affected by changes in interest rates and the creditworthiness of their issuers.
International Large Cap: Investment risks associated with international investing, in addition to other risks, may include currency fluctuations, political, social and economic instability and differences in accounting standards when investing in foreign markets.
International Small Cap: Investments in small, mid or micro cap companies involve greater risks not associated with investing in more established companies, such as business risk, stock price fluctuations, increased sensitivity to changing economic conditions, less certain growth prospects and illiquidity. Investment risks associated with international investing, in addition to other risks, may include currency fluctuations, political, social and economic instability and differences in accounting standards when investing in foreign markets.
Managed Volatility: Although Managed Volatility Portfolios seek to minimize the impact of market downturns, their hedging strategies may limit some upside potential. As with any variable investment, investing in Managed Volatility Portfolios involves investment risk, including the loss of principal. Neither diversification nor asset allocation guarantee against loss, they are methods used to manage risk. Because these funds deploy an asset allocation strategy, investment risks may vary. One should consult the prospectus for details.
Natural Resources & Commodities: Investments in commodities and natural resources involve heightened risk due to leveraging and speculative investment practices, lack of periodic valuation requirements and potentially complex tax structures.
Real Estate Equities: Investment risks associated with real estate investing, in addition to other risks, include rental income fluctuation, depreciation, property tax value changes, and differences in real estate market values.
Sector: Investments that focus in one sector may involve a greater degree of risk and volatility than an investment with greater diversification.
Small/Mid Cap Growth, Small/Mid Cap Value and Small/Mid Cap Blend: Investments in small, mid or micro cap companies involve greater risks not associated with investing in more established companies, such as business risk, stock price fluctuations, increased sensitivity to changing economic conditions, less certain growth prospects and illiquidity.
U.S. Domestic Short/Intermediate/Long-Term Bond: Investments in fixed income securities are subject to the creditworthiness of their issuers and interest rate risk. As such, the net asset value of bond and real estate funds will fall as interest rates rise.

This may limit the ability to increase the contract value through additional purchase payments. If an optional benefit is elected in the contract, this may also limit the ability to increase the value used to calculate the optional benefit.

An annuity is intended to be a long-term, tax-deferred retirement vehicle. Earnings are taxable as ordinary income when distributed, and if withdrawn before age 59 1/2, may be subject to a 10% federal tax penalty. If the annuity will fund an IRA or other tax qualified plan, the tax deferral feature offers no additional value. Qualified distributions from a Roth IRA are generally excluded from gross income, but taxes and penalties may apply to non-qualified distributions. Please consult a tax advisor for specific information. There are charges and expenses associated with annuities, such as deferred sales charges for early withdrawals. Variable annuities have additional expenses such as mortality and expense risk, administrative charge, investment management fees and rider fees. Variable annuities are subject to market fluctuation, investment risk and loss of principal.
