The performance track record for the Wespath funds presented herein represents the linking of historical return streams of two separate and distinct series of funds within the Wespath Funds Trust.
For the period prior to January 1, 2019, it has been comprised of the return stream of the sole series of Wespath fund shares that existed during that time. For the period beginning January 1, 2019, it has been comprised exclusively of the returns of a second newly-created fund series, the I Series, into which all TMF client accounts with balances in the Wespath Funds were transferred on that same date. Returns do not reflect the deduction of TMF administrative fees.
Rates of return reflect past performance and are no guarantee of comparable future results. The prices of the Wespath funds will rise and fall with the value of the investments held in the funds, so investors may lose money.
Investment results shown in the accompanying table reflect the deduction of all fees incurred by the Funds, including but not limited to expenses related to investment management, marketing, and custody. Investors should consider the investment objectives, risks, charges, and expenses before investing. This and other information are contained in the Investment Opportunities and Information Statement, which is available online here.
