1. Index Value based on starting value of one, as of starting date and ending date is shown above the table.

2. The risk measure is calculated as the annualized standard deviation of monthly returns from starting date to ending date shown above the table. The higher the standard deviation number, the higher the investment risk.

3. IFA World Index consists of 11 IFA Indexes weighted to form a globally diversified all Equity Portfolio. Returns in periods greater than one year are annualized returns. For HYPOTHETICAL back-tested performance data shown in this chart, including sources, updates, and important disclosures, see IFA Index Portfolios are labeled with numbers that refer to the percentage of stock indexes in the asset allocation, as opposed to the allocation of bond indexes. For example, IFA Index Portfolio 90 is 90% IFA stock indexes and 10% IFA bond indexes. IFA Indexes are labeled with letters to designate the index name and are defined at HYPOTHETICAL back-tested performance of IFA Index Portfolios assumes annual rebalancing of the indexes to the original allocation. The HYPOTHETICAL back-tested performance of the IFA Indexes and IFA Index Portfolios was achieved with the benefit of hindsight; it does not represent actual investment strategies for the entire period; and it does not reflect the impact that economic and market factors may have had on the advisor's decision-making if the advisor were actually managing client money during the period shown. The performance of index portfolios does reflect the deduction of a 0.9% annual investment advisory fee, which is the maximum advisory fee charged by IFA, and the deduction of mutual fund fees associated with the management of an actual portfolio over the entire period. Unless indicated otherwise, the performance of the IFA Indexes when shown individually, does reflect the deduction of mutual fund fees, includes reinvestment of dividends and capital gains but does not include the deduction of IFA advisory fees, transaction costs or taxes, which if included, would lower performance. The IFA Indexes and IFA Index Portfolios were created by IFA in 2000. Past performance does not guarantee future results. Performance figures may contain both live and HYPOTHETICAL back-tested data. All data, including performance data, is provided for illustrative purposes only, it does not represent actual performance of any client portfolio or account and it should not be interpreted as an indication of such performance. IFA utilizes "standard deviation" as a quantification of risk, see the definition of "standard deviation" in the IFA glossary. © 2019 Index Fund Advisors, Inc. (
