IMPORTANT INFORMATION: All investments involve risk, including loss of principal. Past performance is no guarantee of future results. Please see each product's web page for specific details regarding investment objective, risks, performance and other important information. Review this information carefully before you make any investment decision.
Carefully consider a fund's investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses before investing. Please view the prospectus or summary prospectus for this and other information. Read it carefully.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION: An investor should consider the Program’s investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses before investing. The Program Disclosure Statement, which contains more information, should be read carefully before investing. If an investor and/or an investor’s beneficiary are not Colorado taxpayers, they should consider before investing whether their home states offer 529 plans that provide state tax and other benefits such as financial aid, scholarship funds, and protection from creditors that are only available to state taxpayers investing in such plans.
Blended Benchmark performance is shown for illustrative purposes only. The benchmark for each Investment Option is a hypothetical blend of unmanaged indices for the underlying asset classes corresponding to the Investment Option's target allocations within each asset class. Investors cannot invest directly in an index, and unmanaged index returns do not reflect any fees, expenses or sales charges. An Investment Option's benchmark may change over time to reflect changes in an asset class benchmark, the Investment Option's underlying funds and/or the Investment Option's target allocations to such funds. When an Investment Option's benchmark changes, the benchmark’s new composition is utilized to calculate benchmark performance for periods from and after such change. Benchmark performance for periods prior to the change is not recalculated or restated based on the benchmark’s new composition.

CollegeInvest -- a division of the Colorado Department of Higher Education, which oversees the Colorado-sponsored 529 college savings programs -- has decided to retain TIAA-CREF Tuition Financing, Inc. (“TFI”) as the successor program manager for Scholars Choice. TFI intends to utilize funds managed by Nuveen, an investment manager affiliate of TFI, in managing Scholars Choice portfolios. Legg Mason, through its subsidiaries QS Investors, LLC and Legg Mason Investor Services, LLC, will work with TFI to transfer program assets, records, and management responsibilities while continuing to provide services under the terms of the services agreement on a transition basis, until such time as the transfer is completed. The goal of the parties is to complete the transfer in or about June 2021.
