4 On January 1, 2016, the benchmark for the Stable Value Fund became the Bank of America Merrill Lynch 3-Month Treasury Bill Index. Prior to this, the benchmark was the Bank of America Merrill Lynch Wrapped 1-5 Year Corporate Government Index. The BofA ML Wrapped 1-5 Year Corp. Govt Index is a custom index that started on December 1, 2002 to coincide with the inception of the Stable Value Fund. This index does not reflect actual performance; performance has been adjusted to represent the assumed rate of return that would have been achieved if the BofA ML 1-5 Year Corp. Govt Index had been wrapped for book value returns. This index has been established and calculated by Standish Mellon Asset Management, is not sponsored or licensed by BofA Merrill Lynch, and is not available for direct investment. The index assumes a 12 basis point annual book value wrap fee from inception to June 30, 2004; 10 basis points from then until December 31, 2008; 15 basis points from then until December 31, 2011; and 20 basis points thereafter. These wrap fee assumptions are Standish's view of the industry's average during these points in time. The Crediting Rate formula applied is: CR = (((1+YTM) * ((MV/BV)^(1/D)))-1, where CR is equal to the book value crediting reset rate, YTM is the market yield to maturity of the underlying asset(s), MV is the market value of the underlying asset(s), BV is the book value of the synthetic wrap contract and D is the duration of the underlying asset(s).
