(“Westwood Advisors”). WMC and Westwood Advisors are wholly owned subsidiaries of Westwood Holdings Group, Inc. (NYSE: WHG).

The Income Opportunity Composite is compared to a four-part custom benchmark(1) (25% S&P 500, 25% NAREIT, 25% 10-Yr Treasury, 25% 3-Month T-Bill) and a two-part custom benchmark(2) (40% S&P 500, 60% Bloomberg Barclays US Aggregate Bond Index), which are rebalanced monthly. The S&P 500 index covers 500 companies of the U.S. markets, is capitalization weighted, and includes a representative sample of leading companies in leading industries. The NAREIT Equity Index is an index of all tax-qualified equity REITs listed on the NYSE, AMEX, and NASDAQ that have 75% or more of their gross invested book assets invested directly or indirectly in the equity ownership of real estate. Investments cannot be made directly into the NAREIT Equity Index. The Bloomberg Barclays US Aggregate Bond Index is a broad-based benchmark that measures the investment grade, US dollar-denominated, fixed-rate taxable bond market that includes treasuries, government-related and corporate securities, MBS, ABS and CMBS securities. On 10/1/2019, the two-part custom benchmark replaced the Libor+3% benchmark. The change was made to provide investors a more transparent and readily understood benchmark that is more reflective of the mix of assets that a conservative investor would own. The comparative benchmark returns include reinvestment of income but do not include transaction costs or management fees.
