1Returns for periods less than one year are aggregate and returns for periods more than one year are annualized. The performance quoted reflects fee waivers in effect, and would have been lower in their absence. The performance data quoted represents past performance and is not indicative of future results. Current performance may be lower or higher. The investment return and principal value of an investment will fluctuate so that shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original costs. Effective April 2, 2013, the Fund name, benchmark, principal investment strategies and principal risks were changed. Consequently, prior period performance may have been different if the new investment strategy had been in effect during these periods.

4The Price to Book ratio is calculated based on the book value of each portfolio security as of the end of its issuer’s most recent fiscal year. The Price to Earnings ratio is calculated based on the latest 12 months earnings of each portfolio security. The price is as of the date of this publication (6/30/2019). Beta is a measure of the fund’s sensitivity to the benchmark index. R-squared is a statistical measure that represents the percentage of a fund’s or security’s movements that are explained by movements in a benchmark index.

Wilshire Associates Incorporated, the Fund’s investment adviser, has entered into a contractual agreement to limit expenses to 1.50% and 1.25% of average daily net assets for Investment Class Shares and Institutional Class Shares, respectively, through April 30, 2020. This agreement does not include taxes, brokerage expenses, dividend expenses on short securities and extra ordinary expense. To the extent that the Fund’s expenses are less than the expense limitation, Wilshire may recoup the amount of any management fee waived/expenses reimbursed within three years after the year in which Wilshire incurred the expense if the recoupment does not exceed the existing expense limitation as well as the expense limitation that was in place at the time of the fee waiver/expense reimbursement.

There are risks involved with investing, including the possible loss of principal. In addition to the risks associated with investing, investments in smaller companies typically exhibit higher volatility. In addition to the normal risks associated with investing, international investments may involve risk or capital loss from unfavorable fluctuation in currency values, from differences in generally accepted accounting principles or from social, economic or political instability in other nations. Emerging markets involve heightened risks related to the same factors as well as increased volatility and lower trading volume.

You should consider the Fund’s investment objectives, risks, charges, and expenses carefully before you invest. The Fund’s summary or full prospectus, which can be obtained above or by calling 1-866-591-1568, contains this and other information about the fund.

Read the prospectus carefully before you invest or send money.

Diversification does not ensure a profit or protect against loss.

The MSCI ACWI ex USA Investable Market Index captures large, mid and small cap representation across 22 of 23 Developed Markets countries (excluding the United States) and 23 Emerging Markets countries.

Unlike a mutual fund, the performance of an index assumes no taxes, transaction costs, management fees or other expenses. An individual cannot directly invest in any index.
