Performance

The performance quoted represents past performance and does not guarantee future results. Investment return and principal value of an investment will fluctuate so that shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. Current performance may be lower or higher than the performance quoted.

Total returns may reflect waivers and/or expense reimbursements by the manager and/or distributor for some or all of the periods shown. Performance would have been lower without such waivers and reimbursements.

Average annual total return as of month-end (01/31/2023)

Returns for less than one year are not annualized.

Index performance returns do not reflect any management fees, transaction costs, or expenses. Indices are unmanaged and one cannot invest directly in an index.

Average annual total return as of quarter-end (12/31/2022)

Returns for less than one year are not annualized.

Index performance returns do not reflect any management fees, transaction costs, or expenses. Indices are unmanaged and one cannot invest directly in an index.

Significant events

On December 2, 2020, Waddell & Reed Financial, Inc., the parent company of Ivy Investment Management Company, the investment adviser of the Ivy Funds, and Macquarie Management Holdings, Inc., the US holding company for Macquarie Group Limited’s US asset management business (“Macquarie”), announced that they had entered into an agreement whereby Macquarie would acquire the investment management business of Waddell & Reed Financial, Inc. (the “Transaction”). The Transaction closed on April 30, 2021. The Ivy Funds, as part of Delaware Funds by Macquarie, are now managed by Delaware Management Company and distributed by Delaware Distributors, L.P.

Carefully consider the Series' investment objectives, risk factors, charges, and expenses before investing. This and other information can be found in the Series' prospectus and its summary prospectus, which may be obtained by visiting delawarefunds.com/vip-literature or calling 800 523-1918. Investors should read the prospectus and the summary prospectus carefully before investing.

The Portfolio’s investment manager, Delaware Management Company (Manager), may permit its affiliates, Macquarie Investment Management Global Limited (MIMGL) and Macquarie Funds Management Hong Kong Limited, to execute Fund security trades on behalf of the Manager. The Manager may also seek quantitative support from MIMGL.

Investing involves risk, including the possible loss of principal.

Risk is increased in a concentrated portfolio since it holds a limited number of securities with each investment having a greater effect on the overall performance.

Natural or environmental disasters, such as earthquakes, fires, floods, hurricanes, tsunamis, and other severe weather-related phenomena generally, and widespread disease, including pandemics and epidemics, have been and can be highly disruptive to economies and markets, adversely impacting individual companies, sectors, industries, markets, currencies, interest and inflation rates, credit ratings, investor sentiment, and other factors affecting the value of the Series’ investments. Given the increasing interdependence among global economies and markets, conditions in one country, market, or region are increasingly likely to adversely affect markets, issuers, and/or foreign exchange rates in other countries. These disruptions could prevent the Series from executing advantageous investment decisions in a timely manner and could negatively impact the Series’ ability to achieve its investment objective. Any such event(s) could have a significant adverse impact on the value and risk profile of the Series.
