Wespath Strategy Composite Performance, Net of Fees (as of 1/31/2019)1

The information presented below reflects the actual performance achieved by UMC Benefit Board, Inc. and Wespath Institutional Investments LLC (collectively, the “Advisers”) in managing substantially similar investment strategies (each, a “Composite,” and collectively, the “Composites”). Each Composite is comprised of all accounts managed by Advisers following the respective strategy over the periods presented. The investments of accounts that comprise the Composites may vary substantially from those in the identified benchmark. The benchmarks are based on broad-based securities market indices which are unmanaged and are not subject to fees and expenses typically associated with investment funds. Investments cannot be made directly in an index. Additional information about the Composites is available upon request.

The Advisers believe that it is appropriate to reflect the combined performance of the Advisers in this manner because the Advisers manage substantially similar investment strategies on behalf of different universes of clients using shared investment personnel, processes, research and systems. Presentation of the Composites in this manner provides investors with a broader, more meaningful presentation of performance of the strategy than the performance of a single adviser would.
