Prior to 07/10/2002, all performance figures reflect the performance of the Exeter Trust Company Group Trust for Employee Benefit Plans: All-Equity Collective Investment Trust fund (the “Collective”), which was managed by Manning & Napier Advisors, Inc. (predecessor to Manning & Napier Advisors, LLC), an affiliate of the distributor, and reorganized into the Manning & Napier Fund, Inc. Equity Series on 07/10/2002. The Collective was not open to the public generally or registered under the Investment Company Act of 1940 and the fees of the Collective were lower than the Series’ fees. Therefore, historical performance of the Collective would have been lower if the Collective had been subject to the same fees as the Series. Performance data quoted represents past performance and does not guarantee future results. Performance for periods greater than one year is annualized. The investment return and principal value of an investment will fluctuate, so that an investor’s shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. Current performance may be higher or lower than that quoted.

All investments involve risks, including possible loss of principal. As with any stock fund, the value of your investment will fluctuate in response to stock market movements. Investing in the Series will also involve a number of other risks, including issuer-specific risk, small-cap/mid-cap risk, and interest rate risk.
