*The Quantitative International Equity Portfolio has a contractual management fee/expense waivers that continue through February 29, 2024. To the extent a Fund’s expenses were reduced by waivers, the Fund’s total returns were increased. In these cases, the Fund’s total returns would have been lower had there been no waivers. This is only applicable to the tabs with the Funds with the fee waiver.

Upside capture ratios for funds are calculated by taking the fund’s monthly return during months when the benchmark had a positive return and dividing it by the benchmark return during that same month.

Downside capture ratios are calculated by taking the fund’s monthly return during the periods of negative benchmark performance and dividing it by the benchmark return.

Effective as of February 28, 2020, the Portfolio’s benchmark changed from the MSCI EAFE Index to the MSCI World-ex US Index as the Advisor believes that, given the Portfolio’s investment strategy, the MSCI World-ex US Index provides a more appropriate basis for performance comparison because it has characteristics more similar to the Portfolio’s investment style than the MSCI EAFE Index.
