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 (as applicable) for some or all of the periods shown. Performance would have been lower without such waivers and reimbursements.

Resources

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.

Investing involves risk, including the possible loss of principal.

Investments in small and/or medium-sized companies typically exhibit greater risk and higher volatility than larger, more established companies.

Narrowly focused investments may exhibit higher volatility than investments in multiple industry sectors.

REIT investments are subject to many of the risks associated with direct real estate ownership, including changes in economic conditions, credit risk, and interest rate fluctuations.

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.

Macquarie VIP Funds are not available for direct investment except for issuers of variable insurance product contracts. They are available only through the purchase of certain variable insurance products.

Nothing presented should be construed as a recommendation to purchase or sell any security or follow any investment technique or strategy.
