The Wilshire US Real Estate Securities Index is an unmanaged, float-adjusted market capitalization-weighted index comprising publicly traded REITs and real estate operating companies, not including special purpose REITs. It is comprised of major companies engaged in the equity ownership and operation of commercial real estate. The performance of the index does not reflect the deduction of expenses associated with a fund, such as investment management fees. By contrast, the performance of the Fund reflects the deduction of the fund expenses, including sales charges if applicable. An individual cannot invest directly in an index.

The Barclays Investment Grade REIT Index includes publicly issued U.S. corporate and secured notes that meet the specified maturity, liquidity, and quality requirements. To qualify, bonds must be SEC-registered or 144a securities with registration rights and only includes the portion of the Barclays Capital U.S. Corporate Index deemed to be a Real Estate Investment Trust. The performance of the index does not reflect the deduction of expenses associated with a fund, such as investment management fees. By contrast, the performance of the Fund reflects the deduction of the fund expenses, including sales charges if applicable. An individual cannot invest directly in an index.

U.S. Core Real Estate Securities Composite Benchmark is a composite benchmark comprised of unmanaged indexes that includes 60% Wilshire US Real Estate Securities Index, 10% Wells Fargo Hybrid and Preferred Securities REIT Index and 30% Barclays Investment Grade REIT Index. The performance of the Composite Benchmark does not reflect the deduction of expenses associated with a mutual fund, such as investment management fees. By contrast, the performance of the Fund reflects the deduction of mutual fund expenses, including sales charges, if applicable. An individual cannot invest directly in an index.

The performance of the Lipper Real Estate Funds Index includes expenses associated with a mutual fund, such as investment management fees. These expenses are not identical to the expenses charged by the Fund. An individual cannot invest directly in an index.

Total return assumes reinvestment of dividends and capital gains distributions and reflects the deduction of any sales charges, where applicable. Performance may reflect the waiver of a portion of the Fund's advisory or administrative fees and/or reimbursement of certain expenses for certain periods since the inception date. If fees had not been waived and/or certain expenses were not reimbursed, performance would have been less favorable.

The top 10 holdings listed reflect only the Fund's long-term investments. Short-term investments are excluded. Holdings are subject to change. The holdings listed should not be considered recommendations to purchase or sell a particular security. Each individual security is calculated as a percentage of the aggregate market value of the securities held in the Fund and does not include the use of derivative positions, where applicable.

P/E ratio: the number by which earnings per share is multiplied to estimate a stock's value.

P/B ratio: the relationship between a stock's price and the book value of that stock.

Beta measures a fund's volatility in comparison to the market as a whole. A beta of 1.00 indicates a fund has been exactly as volatile as the market.

Sharpe ratio measures the fund's excess return compared to a risk-free investment. The higher the Sharpe ratio, the better the returns relative to the risk taken.

Tracking Error: The active risk of the portfolio, which determines the annualized standard deviation of the excess returns between the portfolio and the benchmark.

Alpha: The relationship between the performance of the Fund and its beta over a three-year period of time.

Standard deviation/Volatility: A statistical measure of the degree to which the Fund's returns have varied from its historical average. The higher the standard deviation, the wider the range of returns from its average and the greater the historical volatility. The standard deviation is calculated over a 36-month period based on Fund's monthly returns. The standard deviation shown is based on the Fund's Class A Shares or the oldest share class, where Class A Shares are not available.

R2: The percentage of a Fund's movements that result from movements in the index ranging from 0 to 100. A Fund with an R2 of 100 means that 100 percent of the Fund's movement can completely be explained by movements in the Fund's external index benchmark.

EPS: Total earnings divided by the number of shares outstanding.

Risk measures are calculated based upon the Funds' broad-based index as stated in the prospectus.
