Designed to help investors build a strategically allocated broadly diversified portfolio with one investment. Active Allocation Fund typically invests 80% of assets in a "core allocation" of Oppenheimer funds and 20% in a "tactical component." The core allocation is rebalanced at least annually, while the tactical component will be invested in various Oppenheimer funds and other securities seeking to "tilt" the entire portfolio in an attempt to take advantage of temporary current market conditions. When selecting funds for the tactical component, the portfolio manager takes advantage of proprietary, quantitative models that identify and validate price trends in each segment of the market to find advantageous investment opportunities. Portfolio Series seeks to offer investors professional asset allocation with the greatest degree of diversification and return potential for the appropriate level of risk. Each portfolio provides OppenheimerFunds' unique structure and disciplined investment strategy which includes an array of powerful diversifiers that may help create stability over the long term. The full range of tailored portfolios is run by managers who have weathered the challenge of varied market environments.

In managing the portfolio, the Manager will have the authority to select and substitute certain underlying Oppenheimer funds, as designated in the prospectus, and may be subject to potential conflicts of interest because the fees paid to it by some underlying funds are higher than the fees paid by others. However, the Manager is obligated to act in each portfolio's best interests when selecting underlying funds. Each of the underlying funds in which the portfolio invests has its own investment risks, and those risks can affect the value of each portfolio's shares and investment. In addition, there is no guarantee that the underlying funds will achieve their investment objectives. The underlying funds may change their investment objectives or policies without the approval of the portfolio, and a portfolio may be forced to sell its shares of underlying funds at a disadvantageous time. While the Fund may be appropriate for a portion of a retirement plan investment, it is not a complete investment program. See the prospectus for additional risks of investing in the Fund.
Special Risks: Fixed income investing entails credit and interest rate risks. When interest rates rise, bond prices generally fall, and the Fund's share prices can fall. Below-investment-grade ("high yield" or "junk") bonds are more at risk of default and are subject to liquidity risk. Foreign investments may be volatile and involve additional expenses and special risks, including currency fluctuations, foreign taxes and geopolitical risks. Emerging and developing market investments may be especially volatile. Value investing involves the risk that undervalued securities may not appreciate as anticipated. Investments in securities of technology companies may be especially volatile. Small and mid-sized company stock is typically more volatile than that of larger, more established businesses, as these stocks tend to be more sensitive to changes in earnings expectations. It may take a substantial period of time to realize a gain on an investment in a small or mid-sized company, if any gain is realized at all. Investments in securities of growth companies may be volatile. Derivative instruments whose values depend on the performance of an underlying security, asset, interest rate, index or currency, entail potentially higher volatility and risk of loss compared to traditional stock or bond investments. Inflation-indexed debt securities are bonds structured to seek to provide protection against inflation. If inflation declines, the principal amount or the interest rate of an inflation-indexed bond will be adjusted downward. This will result in reduced income and may result in a decline in the bond's price which could cause losses for the Fund. Interest payments on inflation-protected debt securities can be unpredictable and will vary as the principal or interest rate is adjusted for inflation. Inflation-indexed debt securities are also subject to the risks associated with investments in fixed income securities. Diversification does not guarantee profit or protect against loss.

Shares of Oppenheimer funds are not deposits or obligations of any bank, are not guaranteed by any bank, are not insured by the FDIC or any other agency, and involve investment risks, including the possible loss of the principal amount invested.

Before investing in any of the Oppenheimer funds, investors should carefully consider a fund's investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses.
