Investment Objectives: The Portfolio
seeks to provide capital appreciation and income while seeking to manage volatility.
Fees and Expenses of the Portfolio: This
table describes the fees and expenses that you may pay if you buy and hold shares of the Portfolio. The table and the example do
not include any fees or sales charges imposed by your variable annuity contract. If they were included, your costs would be higher.
Please refer to your variable annuity prospectus for information on the separate account fees and expenses associated with your
(fees paid directly from your investment)
Annual Portfolio Operating Expenses
(expenses that you pay each year as a percentage of the value
of your investment)
The Portfolio’s adviser
has contractually agreed, until at least April 30, 2017, to waive 0.60% of its advisory fee. This waiver is not subject to recoupment
by the adviser. The waiver may be terminated only by the Portfolio's Board of Trustees, on 60 days’ written notice to the
Example: This Example is intended
to help you compare the cost of investing in the Portfolio with the cost of investing in other mutual funds.
The Example assumes that you invest $10,000
in the Portfolio for the time periods indicated and then redeem all of your shares at the end of those periods. You would pay the
same expenses if you did not redeem your shares. However, each variable annuity contract and separate account involves fees and
expenses that are not included in the Example. If these fees and expenses were included in the Example, your overall expenses would
be higher. The Example also assumes that your investment has a 5% return each year and that the Portfolio's operating expenses
remain the same. Although your actual costs may be higher or lower, based upon these assumptions your costs would be:
Portfolio Turnover: The Portfolio pays
transaction costs, such as commissions, when it buys and sells securities or instruments (or "turns over" its portfolio).
These costs, which are not reflected in annual portfolio operating expenses or in the Example, affect the Portfolio's performance.
A higher portfolio turnover rate may indicate higher transaction costs. During the most recent fiscal year ended December 31,
2015, the Portfolio’s portfolio turnover rate was 1% of the average value of its portfolio.
Principal Investment Strategies: Global
Atlantic Investment Advisors, LLC (the “Adviser”) allocates a portion of the Portfolio to a Capital Appreciation and
Income Component and a portion to a Managed Risk Component. The Capital Appreciation and Income Component seeks to achieve its
objective by investing in the BlackRock Global Allocation V.I. Fund (the “Underlying Fund”), which is offered by a
different prospectus. The Managed Risk Component is managed pursuant to a strategy that seeks to manage portfolio volatility and
provide downside risk management.
The Adviser seeks to achieve the Portfolio’s
investment objective by allocating, under normal circumstances, at least 80% of the Portfolio’s net assets, plus any borrowings
for investment purposes, to the Capital Appreciation and Income Component, which is invested solely in the Underlying Fund, and
up to 20% of the Portfolio’s net assets to the Managed Risk Component.
The Underlying Fund has a fully managed investment
policy utilizing domestic and foreign equity securities, debt and money market securities, the combination of which will be varied
from time to time both with respect to types of securities and markets in response to changing market and economic trends. Generally,
the Underlying Fund’s portfolio will include both equity and debt securities. Equity securities include common stock, preferred
stock, securities convertible into common stock, rights and warrants or securities or other instruments whose price is linked to
the value of common stock. At any given time, however, the Underlying Fund may emphasize either debt securities or equity securities.
In selecting equity investments, the Underlying Fund mainly seeks securities that the Underlying Fund’s management believes
are undervalued. The Underlying Fund may buy debt securities of varying maturities, debt securities paying a fixed or fluctuating
rate of interest, and debt securities of any kind, including, by way of example, securities issued or guaranteed by the U.S. Government
or its agencies or instrumentalities, by foreign governments or international agencies or supranational entities, or by domestic
or foreign private issuers, debt securities convertible into equity securities, inflation-indexed bonds, structured notes, loan
assignments and loan participations. In addition, the Underlying Fund may invest up to 35% of its total assets in “junk bonds,”
corporate loans and distressed securities. The Underlying Fund may also invest in Real Estate Investment Trusts (“REITs”)
and securities related to real assets (like real estate- or precious metals-related securities) such as stock, bonds or convertible
bonds issued by REITS or companies that mine precious metals.
When choosing investments, the Underlying Fund’s
management considers various factors, including opportunities for equity or debt investments to increase in value, expected dividends
and interest rates. The Underlying Fund generally seeks diversification across markets, industries and issuers as one of its strategies
to reduce volatility. The Underlying Fund has no geographic limits on where it may invest. This flexibility allows the Underlying
Fund’s management to look for investments in markets around the world, including emerging markets, that it believes will
provide the best asset allocation to meet the Underlying Fund’s objective. The Underlying Fund may invest in the securities
of companies of any market capitalization.
Generally, the Underlying Fund may invest in
the securities of corporate and governmental issuers located anywhere in the world. The Underlying Fund may emphasize foreign securities
when the Underlying Fund’s management expects these investments to outperform U.S. securities. When choosing investment markets,
the Underlying Fund’s management considers various factors, including economic and political conditions, potential for economic
growth and possible changes in currency exchange rates. In addition to investing in foreign securities, the Underlying Fund actively
manages its exposure to foreign currencies through the use of forward currency contracts and other currency derivatives. The Underlying
Fund may own foreign cash equivalents or foreign bank deposits as part of the Underlying Fund’s investment strategy. The
Underlying Fund will also invest in non-U.S. currencies. The Underlying Fund may underweight or overweight a currency based on
the Underlying Fund’s management team’s outlook.
The Underlying Fund’s composite Reference
Benchmark has at all times since the Underlying Fund’s formation included a 40% weighting in non-US securities. The Reference
Benchmark is an unmanaged weighted index comprised as follows: 36% of the S&P 500 Index; 24% FTSE World (ex US) Index; 24%
BofA Merrill Lynch Current 5-year US Treasury Index; and 16% Citigroup Non-US Dollar World Government Bond Index. Throughout its
history, the Underlying Fund has maintained a weighting in non-US
securities, often exceeding the 40% Benchmark
weighting and rarely falling below this allocation. Under normal circumstances, the Underlying Fund will continue to allocate a
substantial amount (approximately 40% or more — unless market conditions are not deemed favorable by its adviser, in which
case the Underlying Fund would invest at least 30%) — of its total assets in securities of (i) foreign government issuers,
(ii) issuers organized or located outside the U.S., (iii) issuers which primarily trade in a market located outside the U.S., or
(iv) issuers doing a substantial amount of business outside the U.S., which the Underlying Fund considers to be companies that
derive at least 50% of their revenue or profits from business outside the U.S. or have at least 50% of their sales or assets outside
the U.S. The Underlying Fund will allocate its assets among various regions and countries including the United States (but in no
less than three different countries). For temporary defensive purposes the Underlying Fund may deviate very substantially from
the allocation described above.
The Underlying Fund may use derivatives, including
options, futures, indexed securities, inverse securities, swaps and forward contracts both to seek to increase the return of the
Underlying Fund and to hedge (or protect) the value of its assets against adverse movements in currency exchange rates, interest
rates and movements in the securities markets. The Underlying Fund may seek to provide exposure to the investment returns of real
assets that trade in the commodity markets through investment in commodity-linked derivative instruments and investment vehicles
that exclusively invest in commodities such as exchange traded funds, which are designed to provide this exposure without direct
investment in physical commodities. The Underlying Fund may also gain exposure to commodity markets by investing up to 25% of its
total assets in a wholly owned subsidiary of the Underlying Fund formed in the Cayman Islands (the “Subsidiary”), which
invests primarily in commodity-related instruments.
In the Managed Risk Component, the Portfolio's
Adviser seeks to manage return volatility by employing a sub-adviser, Milliman Financial Risk Management LLC (“Milliman”),
to execute a managed risk strategy, which consists of using hedge instruments to reduce the downside risk of the Portfolio's securities.
The sub-adviser may use hedge instruments to accomplish this goal, which may include: equity futures contracts, treasury futures
contracts, currency futures contracts, and other hedge instruments judged by the sub-adviser to be necessary to achieve the goals
of the managed risk strategy. The sub-adviser may also buy or sell hedge instruments based on one or more market indices in an
attempt to maintain the Portfolio’s volatility at the targeted level in an environment in which the sub-adviser expects market
volatility to decrease or increase, respectively. The sub-adviser selects individual hedge instruments that it believes will have
prices that are highly correlated to the Portfolio's positions. The sub-adviser adjusts hedge instruments to manage overall net
Portfolio risk exposure, in an attempt to stabilize the volatility of the Portfolio around a predetermined target level and reduce
the potential for portfolio losses during periods of significant and sustained market decline. The sub-adviser seeks to monitor
and forecast volatility in the markets using a proprietary model, and adjust the Portfolio’s hedge instruments accordingly.
In addition, the sub-adviser will monitor liquidity levels of relevant hedge instruments and transparency provided by exchanges
or the counterparties in hedging transactions. The sub-adviser adjusts futures positions to manage overall net Portfolio risk exposure.
The sub-adviser may, during periods of rising security prices, implement strategies to preserve gains on the Portfolio’s
positions. The sub-adviser may, during periods of falling security prices, implement additional strategies to reduce losses in
adverse market conditions. In these situations, the sub-adviser’s activity could significantly reduce the Portfolio’s
net economic exposure to equity securities. Following market declines, a downside rebalancing strategy will be used to decrease
the amount of hedge instruments used to hedge the Portfolio. The sub-adviser also adjusts hedge instruments to realign individual
hedges when the Adviser rebalances the Portfolio's asset allocation profile.
Depending on market conditions, scenarios may
occur where the Portfolio has no positions in any hedge instruments.
The Portfolio is non-diversified, which allows
it to invest a greater percentage of its assets in any one issuer than would otherwise be the case. However, through the Underlying
Fund, the Portfolio owns a diversified mix of equity and fixed-income securities.
Principal Investment Risks: As with all
mutual funds, there is the risk that you could lose money through your investment in the Portfolio. Many factors affect the Portfolio's

Purchase and Sale of Portfolio Shares: Shares
of the Portfolio are intended to be sold to certain separate accounts of Forethought Life Insurance Company. You and other purchasers
of variable annuity contracts will not own shares of the Portfolio directly. Rather, all shares will be held by the separate account
for your benefit and the benefit of other purchasers. You may purchase and redeem shares of the Portfolio on any day that the New
York Stock Exchange is open, or as permitted under your variable annuity contract.
Tax Information: It is the Portfolio's
intention to distribute income and gains to the separate accounts. Generally, owners of variable annuity contracts are not taxed
currently on income or gains realized by the separate accounts with respect to such contracts. However, some distributions from
such contracts may be taxable at ordinary income tax rates. In addition, distributions made to a contract owner who is younger
than 59 1/2 may be subject to a 10% penalty tax. Investors should ask their own tax advisors for more information on their own
tax situation, including possible state or local taxes. Please refer to your variable annuity contract prospectus for additional
information on taxes.
to Other Financial Intermediaries: The Portfolio or the Adviser may pay Forethought Life Insurance Company (“FLIC”)
for the sale of Portfolio shares and/or other services. These payments may create a conflict of interest by influencing FLIC and
your salesperson to recommend a variable contract and the Portfolio over another investment. Ask your salesperson or visit your
financial intermediary’s website for more information.
