Fund Objectives

The investment objective of the Pro FTSE RAFI US Index Fund is to track the performance of the FTSE RAFI US 1000 Index, net of expenses. The FTSE RAFI Index Series was recently awarded the William F. Sharpe Indexing Achievement Award for the Most Innovative Benchmark Index. As each index in the FTSE RAFI Index Series is a fundamental index, it is calculated by compiling the following quantitative data for all public equity issuers in the relevant jurisdiction: � Total cash dividends � Free cash flow � Total sales � Book equity value. An overall weight is calculated for each issuer by equally-weighting each fundamental measure. For issuers that have never paid dividends, that measure is excluded from the average. The constituent shares in each index are weighted in accordance with their fundamental weightings. The total value of each index is calculated in real time during each trading day and is available on the FTSE website at www.ftse.com.
