The underlying funds listed below are only available as investment options in variable insurance products issued by life insurance companies. They are not offered or made available directly to the public. These portfolios may contain different investments than the similarly named mutual funds offered by the money manager; therefore, investment results may differ. Fund holdings and investment strategies are subject to change. Investments in some funds may involve certain risks and may not be appropriate for all investors.

Before investing in a Best of America® IV fund, you should carefully consider its investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses. This and other important information is contained in the fund's prospectus, which can be obtained from your investment professional or by contacting Nationwide. Please read the prospectus carefully before investing.

Fund profiles must be read together with these IMPORTANT DISCLOSURES. For a more complete picture of any fund, you should also consult a current performance report and prospectus. Profiles may not be available for every fund.
