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.

3Effective duration is a duration calculation for bonds with embedded options. Effective duration takes into account that expected cash flows will fluctuate as interest rates change. Yield to effective maturity is the total return anticipated if a bond is held for its lifetime. The 30-day SEC yield is an estimator of the return an investor will experience with his or her bond fund investment over a longer period of time.

Wilshire Associates Incorporated, the Fund’s investment adviser, has entered into a contractual agreement to limit expenses to 1.15% and 0.90% 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.

In addition to the normal risks associated with investing, international and emerging market investments may involve risk of capital loss and unfavorable fluctuation in currency values due to differences in generally accepted accounting principles or from social, economic, or political instability in other nations.
