Fund past performance, as shown, is no guarantee of how the fund will perform in the future. The performance shown has been annualized for periods greater than one year. Investment returns and principal value will fluctuate, so that an investor's shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. For current performance, visit www.icmarc.org.

Fund performance is shown comparing it to a "benchmark" which may be a (i) broad-based securities market index (ii) a group of mutual funds with similar investment objectives, or (iii) a short term government backed debt obligation such as a U.S. Treasury Bill. An index is not available for direct investment, is unmanaged, and does not reflect the costs of portfolio management or trading. A fund's portfolio may differ from the securities held in an index.

b. The MSCI All Country World Index (Net) is a free float-adjusted market capitalization weighted index that is designed to measure the equity market performance of large and mid-cap segments of developed and emerging markets.

c. The S&P 500 Index consists of 500 companies representing larger capitalization stocks traded in the U.S.

d. The custom benchmark is comprised of the S&P 500 Index, Russell 2000® Index, and MSCI ACWI ex USA Index (Net) in weighted percentages that correspond to the historical target allocations for the asset classes these indexes represent.

e. The custom benchmark is composed of market indexes that reflect the general performance of the primary asset classes in which the Fund invests, in weighted percentages that correspond to the historical target allocation to those asset classes for the Fund. Those asset class benchmarks are the S&P 500 Index and the MSCI EAFE Index (Net). Should the target allocations for the Fund between those asset classes change, the percentage allocations to the corresponding indexes will also change when calculating the custom benchmark.

For each fund with at least a three-year history, Morningstar calculates a Morningstar Rating™ based on a Morningstar Risk-Adjusted Return measure that accounts for variation in a fund's monthly performance (including the effects of sales charges, loads, fee waivers, and redemption fees), placing more emphasis on downward variations and rewarding consistent performance. The top 10% of funds in each category receive 5 stars, the next 22.5% receive 4 stars, the next 35% receive 3 stars, the next 22.5% receive 2 stars and the bottom 10% receive 1 star. The Overall Morningstar Rating for a fund is derived from a weighted average of the performance figures associated with its three-, five- and ten-year (if applicable) Morningstar Rating metrics. For funds with loads, the Morningstar rating on a load-waived basis is provided, when available. Load-waived ratings do not include any front- or back-end sales loads and are intended for investors that have access to such purchase terms. Funds with loads are waived for plans administered by ICMA-RC. Past performance is no guarantee of future results.
