Wilshire Associates Incorporated, the Fund’s investment adviser, has entered into a contractual agreement to limit expenses to 1.35% and 1.10% of average daily net assets for Investment Class Shares and Institutional Class Shares, respectively, through April 30, 2021. This agreement does not include taxes, brokerage expenses, dividend expenses on short securities and extra ordinary expenses. 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.
Statement of Additional Information
There are risks involved with investing, including the possible loss of principal. Investments in small-cap stocks may be subject to a higher degree of market risk than large-cap stocks, or more established companies’ securities. Furthermore, the illiquidity of the small-cap market may adversely affect the value of an investment so that shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost.
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.
