Investment Strategy

The Portfolio invests 100% of its assets into a single interest bearing deposit account at a bank. Specifically the Portfolio invests in an omnibus deposit account at Union Bank & Trust. Deposits made into the omnibus account on behalf of investors are pooled in this account where they are commingled with deposits of other investors in the Portfolio. The account earns a competitive rate with interest compounded and paid daily into the account. The interest rate will be reviewed by the bank periodically and is subject to change at any time.

How to Interpret the Charts

The performance charts display historical performance for Invest529 portfolios. Two values are represented on each chart. The first value is the daily NAV (net asset value) and is represented by the blue line on the chart. The second value is the percent change of the NAV based on a selected timeframe and is represented by the purple line. A date selector can be found underneath the chart that allows for custom date ranges to be chosen. These charts also feature the ability to zoom into pre-determined time periods (Note: Selecting a zoom period will not change the previously selected date range).

The Portfolio seeks income consistent with the preservation of principal.

Investment Risks

The portfolio invests 100% of its assets in a single interest bearing omnibus deposit account at Union Bank & Trust. The rate of interest applicable to this account will be reviewed periodically and is subject to change at any time.

Investments in the Portfolio may not be insured by the FDIC to the full value of the investment. Although deposits in the omnibus account in which the Portfolio invests are insured by the FDIC on a ‘pass–through’ basis to each account owner up to $250,000, the amount of the FDIC insurance applicable to any account owner may be less than $250,000 if the account owner has other eligible FDIC insured accounts. In addition, the amount of FDIC insurance applicable to an account owner is subject to applicable law and the rules and regulations of the FDIC which change from time to time.

Investments in the Portfolio may not be insured by the FDIC if the FDIC determines certain requirements have not been met. VA529 and Union Bank & Trust must meet certain requirements in order for FDIC insurance to ‘pass–through’ to individual account owners invested in the Portfolio. If VA529 and Union Bank & Trust do not meet those requirements, deposits in the omnibus account may not be insured by the FDIC.
