3The 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 (12/31/2018). 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.

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.

The Russell 2000 Growth Index measures the performance of the small-cap growth segment of the U.S. equity universe. It includes those Russell 2000 companies with higher price-to-value ratios and higher forecasted growth values. Index performance is presented for general comparative purposes. 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.
